Urban street lamp to light up big roads with basic and tested shapes, designed so that from the road it is seen as a homogeneous element integrated in the urban landscape. Its shape, designed for its function, contains the optical and electric units in an orderly manner, prevents light pollution and its easy handling aids its maintenance. It is manufactured in aluminium injection with a painted finish, recycled and recyclable material. The Candela street lamp coexists on the same column but at different heights with the Rama street light. The CANDELA luminaire consists of three parts: a clamp which adapts to columns with a circular cross section, an arm with a rectangular cross section of different lengths, and the oval luminaire.

Materials and finishes

• Body
The whole unit is manufactured in recycled aluminium with painted finish.
Body, lid and latch in aluminium injection finished with grey powder paint (RAL 9007). Reflector in drawn aluminium and diffuser in toughened glass.

• Arm
The luminaire arm is presented in two sizes (75 and 150 cm) with the aim of adapting the distance between the light source and the column in accordance with the type of road to be lit up and the presence of trees overhead. On being aluminium extrusion, the arm can be adapted to any length between both measurements, or extend to 3 m, the latter incorporating a reinforcing brace. The arm incorporates an aluminium injection clamp at one of its ends

• Columns
Columns with a height of 8.20, 10.20 or 12.20 m, with two sections of circular cross-section tube, the lower part Ø 168 mm and the upper part Ø 127 mm. The columns are manufactured in hot galvanized steel and painted finish for 1 or 2 luminaires at the same or a different height.

The 8.20 and 10.20 m columns are also manufactured in extruded aluminium.

The CANDELA street lamp incorporates an optical body for optimized street lighting for VSAP and HM lamps. It accepts lamps up to 400 W with a luminaire efficiency of over 75%.
