The system boasts a range of flexible mounting solutions, including a pole with built-in mounting couplers and versatile clamp-on or post-top models, which can be used to upgrade existing poles outside commercial, hospitality, institutional and retail applications.

“The Rook X pole mount system is a welcome and much-asked-for addition that enables easy and seamless pole mounting of variable Rook X adjustable accents,” said Bill Plageman, VP of Marketing at Amerlux. “Versatile, efficient and aesthetically appealing, these pole mount lighting systems are meticulously crafted to ensure every aspect of your exterior design is as brilliantly lit and beautifully accentuated by Rook as your interior. The Rook family of architectural lighting guarantees consistent design integration inside and out at every angle.”
