What's your favorite older, unusual parking lot, floodlight, or streetlight fixt « on: April 08, 2021, 05:16:51 PM » Author: Desultory
This topic might be difficult but I still thought that it might be fun.

For me it's easy the Line Material/Mcgraw-Edison Stylaire

But the GE Powerglow is a close runner-up.

Street Light: General Electric M-1000 (preferably with a capacitor fin, either 700w or 1000w MV)
Parking Lot: General Electric Powerglow A4000
Floodlight: Either Wide-Lite F-Series or Westinghouse MRF-400 (it was a close tie between this two fixtures...) I also like the older model GE PF-1000.

The GE M-1000 is by far my most favorite fixture used in older parking lots.

Hmmmm...so many to choose from!
For roadway applications, it's a toss up between the Westinghouse OV15/OV25, and the ITT American-Electric Series 13 and Series 25.
For parking lots, i'd be the Westinghouse 2nd generation OV50.
For flood light applications, I've always liked the Westinghouse MRF-400/1000, and the GE Power-Flood series.
