To late to edit the above.
Poking around the linked site....interesting find is that Beta is affiliated/subsidiary of RUUD Ltg. That said...there can be NO question regarding quality or service. I base that statement on a long history of installing RUUD products. Still...$1200 for a parking structure luminaire sounds steep, and may be a tough sell

Greg:
Did you go to the linked site? Comparison charts & a lot more than I have time to look/read thru now.

Seems like the 5 bar unit is comparable to a 250 watt MH lamp on average lumens. (There chart, not mine yet)

Amazing (from the chart) lumens equal to 400 HPS is 2x10 bars, and uses 12% MORE Wattage.

Well Yaa !!!!. "Speeding fines doubled in work zone"
(2/3rds of Ma. Is a work zone,And no progress).
God help you if your in an accident there (the work zone),(while the MANDATORY "Detail" trooper is making you safe (sleeping in his car with the radio and A/C on !!!) But I digress... As usual.

Never mind....
I have not seen the $1200 fixtures yet, or have knowledge of them..Sounds good tho.

Finished pics and #s would be cool!!

I think they look nice. I would love to see them at night.

BTW, nice EMT work Ralph. Very fluid installation. Good work!

Great pics and info.
As large commercial projects continue, the rest of the market will follow and LEDs will get easier and easier to get along with much better prices for the rest of us.
The LED vs. incandescent power will probably always astonish me and right now so does the price for household LED replacements (still a funny color, but theres a lighting co who claim they have the color issue worked out.)
