  • Patent number: 9845945
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides an LED luminaire capable of providing full cutoff illumination in a base configuration, without the addition of reflectors or refractors. The LED luminaire is also interchangeably couplable to one or more different reflectors and refractors. In certain example embodiments, the present disclosure provides a dusk to dawn luminaire operable as a full cutoff luminaire in a base configuration and which is also compatible with an American Nation Standards Institute (ANSI) dusk to dawn reflector/refractor assembly. In an example embodiment, the LED luminaire also includes a housing with a front pivoting door configured to swing away from a mounting structure when opened.

  • Patent number: 9157619
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides devices and techniques for a reversible mounting bracket. The reversible mounting bracket includes a pole mounting side and a wall mounting side. The pole mounting side and the wall mounting side are joined together at approximately 90°. When used to mount a fixture, such as a light fixture, to a wall, the wall mounting side is mounted to a wall, and the pole mounting side provides support for the fixture. When used to mount a fixture to a pole, the pole mounting side is mounted to a pole, and the wall mounting side provides support for the fixture. Thus, the same reversible mounting bracket can be used to mount a fixture to a pole or to a wall.
