  • Patent number: 6379026
    Abstract: A lighting system includes a housing with a rear plate and upper and lower plates extending forwardly and with side plates extending forward coupling the upper and lower plats and with a cover essentially parallel with the rear plate to define a chamber there within. A light source is formed in a generally cylindrical configuration within the chamber. The light source has an axis within a horizontal plane. A reflector includes a lower component in a semi-circular configuration with an axis of rotation coextensive with the xis of the light source. The lower component also has upper ends terminating at the horizontal plane, a forward edge adjacent to the cover, and a rearward edge adjacent to the rear plate. The reflector has an upper component extending upwardly and forwardly from the rearward edge of the lower component in a parabolic configuration and terminating above and forwardly of the forward edge.
