Overview: Philips Gardco is based in Central Texas in a state of the art 260,000 square ft manufacturing facility. Philips Gardco started as a custom lighting manufacturer, pioneering many of the outdoor lighting concepts and products that have become standard in the industry. This includes the "shoebox" luminaire, faceted optics, full cutoff luminaires, the Gullwing, and the method of designing outdoor lighting layouts. Today, Philips Gardco continues to develop innovative, high-quality outdoor luminaires for the professional lighting designer and specifier market. We work closely with our parent company, Philips to integrate sustainable technologies such as MasterColor Elite and CosmoPolis systems into our product offerings. We offer a full line of LED luminaires for every application, as well as a custom solar power offerings.
Sales for Philips Gardco are done through independent lighting sales agents. Although independent, we consider them our partners and work closely with them to deliver a satisfying experience for our customer - from specifier to end-user.
Everyday, we continue to provide sustainable, quality outdoor lighting to discerning professional lighting specifiers.
The Philips Gardco family of bollards offer design and construction qualities that not only ensure their long-term architectural appearance, but provide exceptional lighting performance and glare control. Unique are the vandal-resistant School Bollard and the energy-saving LED Bollard.
The Philips Gardco Designer Canopy semi-recessed luminaires provide low brightness nighttime visibility, a magnificent daytime appearance, and around the clock resistance to insects and moisture. They are available with downlight or wall washing optical systems and utilize HID or compact fluorescent lamps.
The Philips Gardco 300 LINE Cylinders are sleek, stylish and versatile with a myriad of mounting options and uplight and downlight configurations. The revolutionary forward throw optical system creates a uniform distribution that is ideal for entrys and pathways.
The Philips Gardco Designer Floodlight provides remarkable performance from a soft, handsome and exceptionally compact architectural form. With three sizes, lamps to 750W and a choice of nine optical systems, the Designer Floodlight provides the opportunity for unprecedented light control.
Philips Gardco PureForm luminaires combine LED performance excellence and advanced LED thermal management technology with a distinct purity of style to provide outdoor area lighting that is both energy efficient and aesthetically pleasing.
The concept of the Glowtop luminaire allows the lighting designer to select a more decorative lighting product that is also efficient and economical. Philips Gardco Glowtop luminaires enhance the popular glowing sphere with glare-free performance, adding safety and visibility to its appeal. They also allow, at the discretion of the designer, random or precision application with short or extremely wide pole spacings.
An inspiration born of classic forms and forty years practical experience, Gullwing is equal parts architecture, engineering and performance. Available in two sizes up to 1000w, the Philips Gardco Gullwing is the standard in outdoor illumination.
Philips Gardco Form Ten Round luminaires are a natural complement to their classic rectilinear counterparts. Architecturally, the series lends itself not only to a range of building motifs, but provides the designer wide latitude in addressing different mounting height requirements. Available in wattages up to 1000w.
Circa's streamlined, wind-cheating aesthetics, combined with Philips Gardco's legendary glare-free performance, once again brings true innovation to site lighting. Circa is available in post top or side pole mount and with an optional adornment ring.
Almost 40 years ago, Philips Gardco reinvented the theory and practice of outdoor lighting with a luminaire and optical assembly that dramatically improved visibility in the nighttime environment. The Form Ten Square was the first architecturally significant design available to the lighting plan designer.
Philips Gardco's low pressure sodium lighting luminaires combine one of the most efficient light sources available with advanced optical technology. Through our sharp cutoff reflector systems with wide, uniform and glare-free light distribution, these luminaires are unequaled in performance and efficiency by any other low pressure sodium unit. Two distribution patterns are available; a rectangular pattern for area applications (A) and an asymmetric distribution for perimeter lighting (P). The luminaires may be arm mounted (LA) or side mounted (LSA) on extruded aluminum arms.
With the 100 Line, Philips Gardco has changed the shape of the market along with its character. In this remarkable series, specifiers will find compact sconces that provide wide flexibility in high performance illumination and new opportunities to make an architectural statement.
Common sense, legislation and liability concerns suggest the need for outdoor emergency lighting, yet typically no practical or aesthetically acceptable provisions are made. Philips Gardco offers solutions which are discretely housed in standard luminaires, preserving the intent of the architectural design.
Philips Gardco has reinvented and rejuvenated step and aisle lighting. These architecturally styled, intelligently engineered luminaires add elegance and substantially improved visibility to the low-level environment.
Garages are among the most challenging of lighting tasks. To meet these challenges, Philips Gardco has engineered luminaires that satisfy the prerequisites of illumination and durability. These luminaires are thoroughly detailed with respect to construction and application.
Philips Gardco Lightcolumns are a dramatic approach to low- and mid-level lighting. A versatile collection of finely crafted performance luminaires, Lightcolumns are a striking integration of art, architecture and illumination that offer the inspiring opportunity to design with luminaires, instead of around them.
Light appears. Its source does not. Philips Gardco Mantaray and Miniray are remarkably low profile, surface mounted luminaires with incomparable versatility. Their clean, simple forms disappear naturally into landscapes and onto building surfaces.
Just as elegant jewelry can enhance beautiful models, Fascia Forms from Philips Gardco can enhance beautiful architecture. These building mounted luminaires serve as graceful accents in the daytime and as attractive markers to help define spaces in the nighttime environment. Using HID or compact fluorescent lamps, Fascia Forms provide a soft glow on buildings, pathways, and pedestrians. Fascia Forms are exquisite accessories for commercial buildings both day and night.
Fascia Plates are part sconce, part architecture, part decoration, and part identity system. They are luminaires which recess neatly into building facades or are discretely surface mounted to perform a myriad of practical, architectural and decorative duties.
Unlike many wall-mounted outdoor luminaires that compete with the architecture for nighttime recognition, Fascia enhances the architecture dramatically. The building is the statement, not the luminaire. In the daytime, Fascia blends naturally into the facade, but at night Fascia makes the building come alive. Using high intensity discharge lamps up to 400 watts, the area of surface illumination provided by Fascia is remarkable. With spacings up to 40 feet, Fascia can economically illuminate vast surfaces. Wherever ground or pole mounted floodlights are impractical; this innovative wall mounted luminaire is the perfect solution.
