Night Sky Friendly


Sternberg Lighting’s commitment to provide safe and comfortable nighttime lighting extends to protecting the night sky. From our first days of utilizing LED technology, we made the decision to locate LEDs up in the roof of our fixtures, fully shielded, and directing 100% of the light downward. This not only increases delivered efficacy and spacing, but eliminates unwanted uplight, protecting the beauty of our nighttime skies. Sternberg offers a wide variety of downlights that emit zero uplight. We proudly complement those options with these post-top fixtures, bollards, wall sconces, and columns, all with U0 ratings to meet both your local lighting ordinances and design criteria.
