Type II: distribution is well suited for expanded walkways, entrance roadway lighting, and other applications. Having a lateral width of 18-29° means this type is meant for lighting larger areas.
Type III: well suited for roadway, parking, and other spaces where a larger area of light is required, as the light distribution gives more coverage further from the point source outward. Type III distribution provides a wide, round pattern and yields on even light disbursement since the light projects outwards.
Type V: distribution is intended for mounting, at or near, the center of roadways, the center islands of parkways, or on intersection. Type V pushes light in all directions from the center, providing the most even pattern, equally across all angels, in either a circular or square pattern.
