High-mast lighting, which refers to lighting equipment which is mounted 80 ft. or more above the area being lighted, offers advantages which conventional systems cannot match. Several beam elevations and asymmetric distributions patterns are used to excellent advantage in high- mast lighting. Asymmetric equipment using vertical lamps and refractors provides an exceptionally good mix of utilization, system brightness, and uniformity of illumination. The problem of maintenance of high-mast lighting systems is considered and it is noted that one of the better approaches is that of bringing the lights to the ground for maintenance. Brief comments are made on the applications of high mast lighting in fields other than highway lighting.
