    Can you reduce the number of high mast fixtures by up to 50% without compromising light output just by switching to LED?

    The answer to this question is a resounding YES, when you use the Lumec HighFocus LED high mast luminaires.

    With up to 103 lumens per watt, and 32,000-97,000 delivered lumens, it is possible to reduce the overall number of luminaires needed per high mast setup when compared to traditional HID technologies. This not only reduces energy-related costs but maintenance and initial project costs as well. 


    The Lumec HighFocus high masts can reduce energy usage by up to 58% annually compared to typical HID installations and substantial CO2 savings as well.* This can make a significant impact on your bottom line.

    The HighFocus high masts are also backed by a 10-year limited warranty so your crews aren’t burdened by endless and labor-intensive re-lamping cycles. Unlike many manufacturers, the life rating is based on the luminaire useful life, meaning that all LED lumen maintenance, as well as LED life, driver life, on/off cycles, burn hours, corrosion considerations, light engine PCB substrate, solder joints and more, are accounted for when determining the long-lasting power of the luminaire. This provides you with the confidence that the entire HighFocus luminaire will consistently perform today and far into the future.


    Plus, by switching your HID high mast luminaires to HighFocus LED, you can achieve comparable photometric performance while cutting your luminaire quantity in half.** This means you have fewer luminaires to maintain, allowing you to do more with less!


    The long LED life also means that motorists and others within the space aren’t frequently inconvenienced by maintenance-related lane or area closures. Consistent and uniform light levels from HighFocus’s specially-designed, discrete LED optics also mean that anyone can confidently navigate the well-lit area with ease.

    *Based on comparison between 1000W HPS luminaires (at 1150W) and HFL-276L1050NW-G1 (at 965W) with an energy rate of $0.1045/KWh. National average energy rates and other assumptions apply. Contact Signify for more details and to help you determine your savings.


    ** Based on photometric comparison of (8) 400W HPS Type 2 luminaires versus (4) HFL-184L1050NW-G1and (10) 400W HPS Type 5 luminaires versus (5) HFL-184L1050NW-G1 HighFocus LED luminaires. This luminaire comparison was used for the energy savings calculation.
