OSRAM SYLVANIA Introduces ProPoint™ Outdoor Luminaires

State-of-the-art LED Technology Combined with Elegant, Efficient and Functional Fixtures for a Variety of Outdoor Applications


Toronto, Ont. and Danvers, Mass. (October 4, 2011) – Committed to providing its customers with robust LED solutions from component to fixture, North American lighting leader OSRAM SYLVANIA is pleased to expand its portfolio of outdoor LED lighting solutions with the introduction of ProPoint™, a new line of outdoor luminaires that provide uniform, high quality light everywhere it is needed. OSRAM SYLVANIA’s ProPoint Outdoor Luminaires serve a wide range of applications and combine leading LED technology with efficient, beautifully designed outdoor fixtures.

Recognizing the growing need for control and flexibility in outdoor lighting applications, OSRAM SYLVANIA developed the dynamic ProPoint series to offer more energy-efficient, longer-life alternatives to traditional outdoor lighting sources and fixtures, while adding improved controllability and design. OSRAM SYLVANIA solutions continue to be at the forefront of lighting technology and the ProPoint series delivers several new offerings to OSRAM SYLVANIA’s portfolio of LED solutions, meeting a wide range of outdoor application needs.

While the ProPoint series will continue to expand and evolve, the line currently includes seven unique luminaires, ranging from roadway to street, area and parking lighting applications. The current ProPoint luminaire series is comprised of the Small Cobrahead, Shoebox, Streetscape – Post Top, Streetscape – Pendant, Gas Canopy, Parking Garage and Small Wallpack luminaires.

OSRAM SYLVANIA ProPoint Outdoor Luminaires offer easy maintenance and installation and each luminaire has a rated life of 50,000 hours, reducing the frequency of maintenance even further, compared to traditional lighting technologies. ProPoint luminaires offer 50 percent or more in energy savings over traditional luminaires, including metal halide (MH) and high-pressure sodium (HPS), making ProPoint luminaires incredibly efficient outdoor lighting solutions. Many ProPoint luminaires are available in multiple power levels, color temperatures and distribution patterns, ensuring flexibility for practically any outdoor lighting application.
