About Slipfitter Mounting for Outdoor Fixtures
For outdoor lighting applications, floodlights are the go-to option for a wide variety of customers, due to their versatility, high performance and durability in all weather conditions. Because of these attributes, they can be found in just about any parking lot, parking structure, fuel station and any other outdoor lighting application that requires stout illumination in a compact and durable package.
The slipfitter mount gives customers utilizing traditional-style round or square light poles the ability to quickly and seamlessly add floodlight performance capabilities to their outdoor lighting setups. One of the biggest advantages of a floodlight for outdoor lighting is its ability to provide a directional beam that also has a wide angle, providing broad illumination that is easily tailored for each specific application. When combined with a slipfitter mount that gives nearly infinitely adjustable angles, there are few better lighting fixture choices available.
Slipfitter Mount for Parking Poles
As mentioned previously, slipfitter mounts are designed to slide over top of square or round light poles, such as those used in parking lots. Once slid over the top of the pole, they are secured using opposing screws that clamp down to ensure a strong and secure connection. This means the mount can be rotated 360° on the pole itself, in addition to having a 180° rotation back and forth through the adjustable hinge built into the mount.
One of the additional advantages of slipfitter mounts is that the wiring is cleanly tucked away within the mount itself, providing an aesthetically pleasing look that also protects wiring for foreign objects and accidental damage. This is especially relevant for parking lots, where these fixtures are exposed to extreme weather conditions, animals, birds and other things that can destroy lesser fixtures.
