The Coach Style Lantern from Amerlux, a design-and-manufacture lighting company, is a pedestrian light. It delivers light more efficiently and turns post-top mounting into a one-person effort.
Made from die-cast aluminum as opposed to stamped steel, the Coach Style Lantern weighs only 16 pounds, which is much less than typical pedestrian light fixtures that tip the scale at 30 pounds to 50 pounds.
“An installer can carry the Coach Style Lantern (CSL) with one hand, while connecting the power with the other,” said Amerlux CEO and President Chuck Campagna. “From its outstanding lifespan to its superior optical performance, CSL replaces installation headaches with a ‘more, better, faster’ experience that delivers a greater ROI.”
The Coach Style Lantern’s design makes installation and maintenance practically effortless. The LED modules and drivers are installed in the top of the lantern that hinges open, which is secured with a tool-less fastener. As a result, workers can manipulate the fasteners while wearing gloves, which saves valuable time. In addition, a conveniently located wiring terminal block also makes new installations or replacing/retrofitting fixtures simple and quick.
The modular construction of CSL’s LED boards make its light distribution customizable. Instead of a single large LED panel made up of multiple die throwing light in all directions with harsh glare, the Coach Style Lantern uses LED modules that are much more efficient and easy to maintain. Optics are fitted directly to the LED modules that allow for total control of where the light is distributed. In addition, individual modules are field replaceable. CSL offers four horizontal lighting distributions. Type II is a long oval, used for lighting paths and narrow roads; Type III is for larger roads; Type IV is asymmetric and projects semi-circular lighting for the sides of walls; and Type V is circular, illuminating 360° equally.
The Coach Style Lantern comes in 24 watt, 44 watt, 60 watt, and 79 watt options, offering a range of 2,215 lumens to 9,374 lumens. It is available in standard CCTs of 3000K and 4000K. CSL maintains more than a 90% initial lumen output for more than 100,000 hours. Market-leading optical performance allows for greater spacing and less fixtures to illuminate a space.
The Coach Style Lantern is available with a three-pin, twist-lock photocell receptacle or a seven-pin receptacle, which enables wireless controls (if budgets do not allow for controls at time of purchase, users can simply add the seven-pin receptacle, so they can add controls in the future). The utility-grade pedestrian light meets the current standards of the Design Lights Consortium (DLC), which qualifies it for rebates to shorten the ROI payback period.
