82 BEKA SCHRÉDER Product Catalogue

LAMP COMPARTMENT The housing is robustly constructed, weatherproof, hail

proof, corrosion proof and vandal resistant.

It is manufactured from filled ultraviolet stabilized

engineering polymer and is grey in colour.

An exterior lip is provided on the lamp housing to

avoid direct rain water contact with the gasket, thus

ensuring that no moisture is sucked into the diffuser

when the luminaire is switched off and cools down.

The non-discolouring high-impact acrylic diffuser bowl

has no external prisms and is held to the housing by

three stainless steel clips. (Five in the 400W version.) It

remains attached to the housing when hinged open.

The gasket sealing the lamp compartment is made of

silicon sponge rubber and is fitted into a tongue-and-

groove arrangement.

Reflectors are manufactured from 99.98% super pure

deep anodized aluminium and are not subject to

accidental misalignment.

The lamp holder complies with VC 8011, is rated to

withstand 240˚C/5kV and prevents possible loosening

of the lamp caused by vibrations.

GEAR COMPARTMENT The control gear compartment is manufactured from

highpressure die-cast aluminium to ensure excellent

heat dissipation and optimum strength.

It is covered by a hinged, non-corrosive lid which fits

into a silicon sponge gasket in the body, into a tongue-

and-groove arrangement.

The IP 66 ingress protection rating ensures that all

control gear components are protected against the

ingress of dust and moisture, thus preventing corrosion

and premature failure.

The control gear is mounted on a removable gear tray
