Naked CMH recessed can at Mall of America

Naked CMH recessed can at Mall of America

At the mall of America in bloomington, MN. They are doing some remodeling work in the Nickelodion Universe area, and I caught sight of several of these metal halide recessed cans. Just looking at the electronic ballasts, I assume these cost well over $150 apiece.

Interestingly, I've seen almost the same thing at a local mall last week. They are doing major renovations and some were naked like this. They all had magnetic F-can ballasts, though. Apart from that, they had a large number of 400 watt MH highbays to light the corridors as temporary lighting. It was nice to be in a place lit almost entirely by metal halide. When everything is said and done, it will be... LED Oh, well at least I got a few hours to enjoy the good old MH. Unfortunately I had no means to take pictures.

Hopefully they use good LEDs from companies who knows how to design LED fixtures. Not crap from generic companies from eBay or whatever.

Why I like LEDs on top of other lighting tech?
LEDs = Upgrade 95% of the applications. (That is if you avoid eBay's LEDs).


LED brainwash? No, people uses them cuz they work well for them.

I hope they're good as well. They had quite a yellow tinge, I guess they are to imitate incandescent lamps. Time will tell how long they'll last. Most are directional adjustable spotlights that are grouped three in a box painted black inside and installed flush with the finished ceiling (I don't know the proper name for these). You traditionally see them with CMH lamps but now...

Good LEDs may last a long time, but i only can feel sorry for the workers of the shop (who have nothing to do with the choice of lighting) that will have to stay many hours a day under the LEDs

@sol Are you able to save any of the recessed cans?

No, unfortunately. I didn't even see the workers.
