Since 1975, the Port of Long Beach has used various types of Holophane high mast luminaires such as the HMST®, HMSD™ and HMSP™ units. Holophane’s high mast fixtures with glass reflectors are a great fit for the Port because the luminaires are capable of withstanding the demanding conditions associated with ocean atmospheres and environments.
