Powerlite Parking Lot Lights

Not sure what these are, they're pretty big lumes and are pretty rare too. All I know was that they were made by Powerlite and have the 70s label design on them. The model number and wattage on the tags were faded.

These use the same refractor as the B2255 too.

I agree with GullWhiz/Jace The Gull .. those are cool looking.

Powerlite seems to have had a number of very cool designs incorperating the drop lens design. I vaguely remember seeing a gas station in Niagra Falls (canada) that used canopy lights with drop lenses like these. I can't remember where though. It may have been a Citco... I think there were durastar 3000s on traffic light poles near it... They were pretty cool. The light was recessed so all that was visable was the lens.

Yeah Powerlite seemed to come up with some interesting parking lot lighting designs, too bad we still don't have a Powerlite catalogue.

There is the same in Montreal in Olympic stadium.

Interesting, I've noticed that Montreal has a lot of unique Powerlite fixtures like those "Poubelle" lights on the Autoroutes there.

Exactly, like shoebox with the same refractor and a lot of cobraheads and 'poubelle' fixtures.
I go in Montreal in october, i will see a part of them. But Lumec Helios is now the most popular luminaire since 5-6 yo.
