The four primary applications for Surface Mounted Luminaires are fully addressed by the large offering of U.S. Architectural Lighting products shown in this catalog, many of which satisfy multiple applications.
Architectural Accent: Highlighting reliefs and projections on buildings can achieve dramatic nighttime effects, and accent architectural features that otherwise would not be enjoyed at night.
Pedestrian Safety: Fixtures mounted above or below eye level, controling high angle brightness which produces disability glare.
Perimeter Security: In areas around building perimeters where visual security is of paramount importance, it is important for fixtures to provide vertical as well as horizontal illumination.
Dual Function: Providing upward illumination for architectural accent, and downward illumination for pedestrian safety or perimeter security creates a very dynamic and functional lighting effect.
