The concept of the Glowtop luminaire allows the lighting designer to select a more decorative lighting product that is also efficient and economical. Gardco Glowtop luminaires enhance the popular glowing sphere with glare-free performance, adding safety and visibility to its appeal. They also allow, at the discretion of the designer, random or precision application with short or extremely wide pole spacings. The lighting effect of Gardco Glowtop luminaires must be seen to be appreciated, being almost moonlike in appearance. A small percentage of lamp lumens are directed up and uniformly diffused through a translucent white dome. Gardco Glowtops bring a new nighttime appeal to all environments that call for lighting on a human scale.
As with the hardtop series, the post top Glowtops incorporate a state-of-the-art, patented dual yoke design. This yoke is both structurally and optically motivated. It provides strength without mass, freeing the luminaire from confining supports and presenting minimum restriction to light. And the yoke gives the luminaire a symmetrical, balanced appearance from all viewing angles. Ballastry is enclosed within the pole, allowing shadow-free uplight from the top housing.
