Philips Lighting focuses on providing innovative, user-centric and energy-efficient solutions and applications for lighting, based on a deep understanding of customer needs – both at home and in public spaces.
With new lighting technologies, such as LED and the increasing demand for energy-saving solutions, Philips will continue to develop groundbreaking new lighting products. Holscher Design has designed two street light systems for Philips: the Philips MileWide and the Philips MileWide 2 – made for the MileWide road accessories.
The MileWide luminaries from Philips are part of a wide range of road accessories, which also contains traffic lights, signs and bus stop shelters. The luminaire is suitable for mounting on a horizontal arm of 60 mm diameter.
The surface is centrifugal cleansed and provided a lacquer finish. This titanium-like surface is highly resistant to changes in the weather and ultraviolet radiation. The luminaries are supplied with a range of high pressure sodium lamps: SON-T 50, 70,100 and 150W. The cover bowl is made from toughened flat glass; the edge is masked by serigraphy. The housing can be opened by releasing a steel spring, hidden in a slot between bottom frame and cover. This allows access for installation, lamp replacement or service.
