Poly + 400w MV = yelow/brittle
Acrylic + 400w MV = ice cream on a hot day

Actually acrylic is better then polycarbonate, it lasts about 80,000 - 100,000 hours VS polycarbonate at only 10,000 to 20,000 hours, never the less neither should ever be used with any thing over 175 watts, personal I would never use plastic at all, in fact here we have all glass refractors, even on 70 watters!

Say no to Induction & LED, HID forever!

i agree with Gailgrove...we use Plastic Lenses for our 175 and 100 Watt Streetlights...everything 200 Watts and Up is Glass.

Personally i think that all Lamp Bans are idiotic,the idea of telling us we cant use this lamp type just cause its less efficent is highly communist in nature...really what good is it going to do?

All of the germans AEG Koffer lanterns (Including Koffer 250 and Seilkoffer 250 with two 250W lamps or one 400W lamp) have polycarbonate bowls.

I"m don't speak English well, and rely on online translating to write in this site.
Please forgive me if my choice of my words looks like offensive, while that isn't my intention.

I only working with the European date format (dd.mm.yyyy).

I lives in Israel, which is a 230-240V, 50hz country.

I agree also that plastic should not be used over 175w, but some M-250R2's have polys that are 250w (HPS) and haven't yellowed one bit sinence they were installed some 5 years ago.

Thats sad, and I bet it only happened because they didn't want to bother replacing the refractor

More likely 'cause it's Mercury Vapor.

You're lucky I took this picture when I had the chance. Every time any street light I've photographed has been replaced, that picture is considered valuable.
I noticed all the new replacements on South Franklin Street last Saturday while I was on the MBTA bus (route 230 to Quincy Center Station) on my way to my fiancee's house.
