McPhilben Lighting packs « on: July 04, 2021, 09:08:23 AM » Author: Cole D.
At my high school, on the cafeteria and vocational buildings, have McPhilben Lighting wall packs. They have the heart shaped glass with a guard. Now these are newer than the ones I usually see, they are bronze with HPS. I would guess maybe 70W or 100W? I believe they're from 1989, because that's when those areas were built. I'd like to get pics or a video but it's difficult. Also, some were replaced with bronze Cooper HPS wall packs.

The original buildings at the school, have Holophane silver wall fixtures with MV, I'd guess 100 or 175W. Now, those are from 1971. They don't have the Holophane name on the front though. There are lots of them, although some of these too, have been replaced with Cooper HPS wall packs.

Yes same shape, just in bronze with a metal guard over the glass. I wish I could find one. The Holophane fixtures come on eBay pretty often, but I think these are larger and internal ballast.
