Zero-Uplight Flat Glass Optic

Our new tempered Flat Glass Optic protects the night skies with zero-uplight distribution. The glass is frosted to also offer a visually comfortable solution.

Two Housing Styles

Both sizes are available in either of two popular housing styles. Choose from the Memphis® family (left) or the Esplanade® family (right) to provide the optimal architectural statement in your application.

Utility-Friendly Features

Each series provides multiple utility-friendly features to simplify installation and maintenance. Features like our new Quick-mount Fitter to toolless entry and pre-wired terminal block all make installation and maintenance simpler and faster.

Decorative Skirt Options

Decorative skirt options can also be utilized to give your luminaire a more unique appearance or even further reduce uplight or light trespass. Skirts are configurable in either “deep” or “shallow” styles.

Uplight Option

For those desiring an even more unique architectural look, the Tear Drop LED III Large is also available with an optional prismatic glass uplight refractor. This refractor utilizes an additional LED light source to produce a moderate amount of uplight to augment the appearance of the fixture.

Advanced Controls

The Holophane Tear Drop LED family is available with a variety of control options ranging from dusk-to-dawn products to smart network solutions from DTL® and nLight® AIR. The control nodes can be configured for mounting either internally or externally (on arm/fitter).



LED Retrofit Kits for HID

The LED Retrofit Kits for Holophane’s Large Tear Drop HID (ESU & MPU) and Pedestrian Tear Drop HID (ESP & MSP) fixtures are the exact same components used on our LED products. This ensures optimal performance, thermal management and that the securely mounted kits will not vibrate loose. Take advantage of your existing HID fixtures by installing the only LED retrofit kit designed specifically for that product.
