The MTR is a family of diffuse exterior luminaires that includes Round and Square Columns and Bollards. The MTR refractor optic incorporates the light-bending properties of a prism, directing the light precisely where you need it most, with minimum intensity at planar viewing angles.
The MTR refractors are a unique design which reduce glare and enhance visual comfort, while also reflecting a small amount of light upward, providing torso illumination for recognition and depth perception and enhancing the sense of security and visual comfort.
The MTR bollards are installed below or near to eye level in environments where minimizing glare is especially important such as car parks or pedestrian walkways. They mark out entrance areas and paths, act as a means of orientation, and at the same time can help to structure a space.
MTR bollards are also available in SteelCore. Selux SteelCore crash rated bollards are designed for protecting pedestrians and property from the threat of vehicular impact. Read about SteelCore in our Application Guide:
The MTR Square was used in the Memorial Plaza in NYC. It was our first modular column, custom designed to resemble the shape of the Twin Towers. Cameras were installed in the columns for added security. These columns provide directional lighting capabilities and utilize glare free refractor technology for enhanced visual comfort of the many visitors who occupy the walkways and public plaza.
