LAMP COMPARTMENT The housing is robustly constructed, weatherproof,

hailproof, corrosion proof and vandal resistant.

It is manufactured from filled ultra-violet stabilised

engineering polymer and is grey in colour.

The high-impact, non-discolouring acrylic diffuser bowl

has no external prisms and is held to the housing by

three stainless steel clips. 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 anodised aluminium and are not subject to

accidental misalignment.

The lampholder complies with VC 8011, is rated to

withstand 240˚C/5kV and prevents possible loosening

of the lamp caused by vibrations.

The gear compartment is manufactured from high-

pressure die-cast aluminium to ensure excellent heat

dissipation and optimum strength (BEKASUN only).

The control gear is mounted on a removable gear tray

and is suitable for operation with the specified rating

of the lamp on a 230V +3%/-10% 50Hz single phase


All control gear components are removable and bear

the relevant SABS mark.
