This traditional hexagonal lantern is hand crafted in copper and retains the Victorian Heritage styling of the original. This style of lantern has been in production since the 1880’s when these luminaires were some of the largest ever used in street lighting. The Westminster achieves an IP54 standard of ingress protection and with their superior optical control meet present day lighting standards across a wide range of applications and lamp combinations. The design of the lantern provides a distinctive profile and scale. The small, medium and large Westminster, have glazing panels in polycarbonate as standard, with optional acrylic and glass. They are secured to the lantern ribs with foam gaskets and glazing tags. The hinged door provides easy access for maintenance and cleaning cycles.
The lanterns are frog mounted, as standard, these being galvanised and powder coated. The Sugg lantern differs from its competitors as the side ribs are reinforced with stainless steel rods thus spreading the weight and wind loading across the structure of the luminaire which offers enhanced durability in service. A hinged version is also available, in medium, without a door the glazing in this instance is two piece folded for increased durability. The gear is mounted in the tent canopy either side of the optic and in this way we can accommodate the full range of discharge lamps.
