MP Lamps



Venture's open fixture rated MP and MPI lamps contain protective quartz shrouds which helps contain hot particles in the lamp within the event of an arc tube rupture. Open fixture rated metal halide lamps offer significant advantages for end-users, including:
• Meet requirements of the new 2005 National Electric Code
•  Do not require a luminaire lens, delivering more light
• Continuous operation
  - 24/7/365 - No shut-off required
• Can be used in open or enclosed luminaires
   - Meet ANSI criteria for use in open luminaires
• Arc tube surrounded by a shroud
• Meets ANSI criteria for open fixture use
• Lower luminaire costs
• Easier lamp replacement
• Recommended by the insurance industry


Open Fixture Lamp Leader
Venture began producing metal halide lamps that contain a protective shroud in 1989. With the new change in the NEC, effective January 1, 2005, Venture again is ahead of the game refusing to sell "S" rated lamps as of 2000. Venture Lighting is building lighting systems with safety in mind; Your safety.
