Album name:Paul / Mercury Vapour / HPS / Metal Halide Lanterns
Cap Type:GES
Comments:When I first saw this lantern, I thought it had caught fire and burned out like I had seen happen in the past to some early Urbis lanterns. I was always intrigued to know how these lanterns caught fire... was it a lightning strike or control gear fault?

Also Strong Winds can Blow the top of Street Lights off and yep Urbis are the main culprits for loosing their tops.

This looks like the remails of a WRTL arc.

It is indeed - it was mis-identified LOL :doh: :doh:

XD. Dont worry, we all misidentify lanterns at some point. I once mistook a Sapphire 2 for an Iridum :doh: In saying that, street light are like cars. They all look the same.

Yep its a Arc. These, Urbis, and Thorn Alpha 2000s are a pain for this

I've never seen the canopys blown off them before, although i have seen a Sapphire bowl on the floor. how that managed to fall out i dont know.

Urbis ZX1's a a pain for doing this a round here.

These WRTL Arc 80/90 Urbis zx1/2/3 always suffocate the pain like this in high winds when the wind triggers the clip and then the canopy flies open and flies off
