HessAmerica. A member of the Nordeon Group.

HessAmerica is a leading manufacturer of outdoor architectural luminaires of distinction with a uniquely European flavor. Quality materials, unparalleled design, and innovation are hallmarks of the company's products. HessAmerica is a wholly owned subsidiary of Hess GmbH Light + Form, located in the Black Forest of Germany.

Hess designs are the result of collaborations with architects and lighting designers renowned for trend-setting styling or performance optical systems. Hess luminaires are establishing new international standards with their innovative form "language". With an extensive range of exterior product families, the line provides design unity rarely available.

ARINI multi-functional lighting system adds visual impact to feature spaces with a selection of artistically styled curved, straight, or angular poles.  Speakers or CCTV cameras may be integrated into the contoured housing to create a sense of place where illumination, communication, sound, and security combine to produce a welcoming atmosphere.  Applications include stadia, civic and convention centers, theme parks, public squares and promenades.

COLONNADE adds formality and definition through the artistic interplay of light and shadow.  The illuminated column features decorative panels with organic styling cues reminiscent of woven palm fronds to impart richness with texture and depth to a wide variety of settings.  The column is constructed from cast, extruded, and machined aluminum components for superior fit and finish to satisfy the demanding needs of pedestrian scale architecture. 

PARCO creates a compelling visual image through a gracefully curved profile.  Poles are available in 10’, 12’, and 14’ heights.  The luminaire is shielded and regressed into the rectangular pole profile, emitting zero uplight, making is suitable for all LEED lighting zones and Dark Sky applications.  Subtly executed design features include concealed anchor bolts and an absence of visible welds or hardware.  A complementary bollard completes the family. 

The PORTAL column provides flexible lighting options ranging from a single source for general illumination, to the addition of optional low-level marker lights for accenting or pathway illumination.  PORTAL column was recognized in LightFair International’s 2018 Innovation awards, selected for inclusion in the 2018 Illuminating Engineering Society’s Progress Report, and most recently a winner in Architectural SSL’s Product Innovation Awards. 

PORTAL EXIT is a ground mounted exit signage solution for exteriors where wall or ceiling mounting is not possible or desired.  The bollard provides visual guidance towards exit in exterior settings such as courtyards, roof-top gardens, and swimming pool decks, or other spaces requiring wayfinding.  PORTAL EXIT was recently selected for inclusion in the 2018 IES Progress Report.

    HessAmerica’s Portal Column Earns the Triple Crown for Lighting Product Design

    Gaffney, SC, August 2018 — HessAmerica announces the Portal Column has received three prestigious recognitions this year.

    HessAmerica General Manager, Terry O’Toole observed, “We are honored that three separate panels of independent expert judges have selected Portal Column for its innovative design, lighting performance, and technological advances.”

    In addition to the LightFair Best of Category Innovation Award; Portal Column was chosen for inclusion in the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) 2018 Annual Progress Report; and has also been selected a winner in Architectural SSL’s eighth annual Product Innovation Awards.

    PORTAL is a slender architecturally styled column available in 8’ or 10’ heights.  Its striking design accents public and private space while providing flexible lighting options ranging from a single source for general illumination, to the addition of optional low-level marker lights for accenting, effects, or pathway illumination.

    The unique primary optical system of PORTAL employs a combination of edge lighting, refraction, and reflection principles to generate functional illumination from its ringed lens with circular opening.  Four high-power LED light engines with specialized refractive lenses are regressed within the column top to produce a narrow elliptical beam that is directed to and captured by the multi-layered ringed lens. The molded optical-quality lens then refracts light downward to the ground and outward to be reflected by the satin anodized aluminum bezels, resulting in a bi-directional forward throw distribution with uniform coverage at grade.

    Optional low-level marker lights grouped in clusters of three may be integrated on one or both sides of the column’s narrow sides for subtle highlighting or added pathway illumination.  The marker lights may have diffused lenses to create a pool of light, or controlled optics with forward throw or asymmetric distributions.  The column can be configured with different distributions on each side to achieve the desired effect or as required by site lighting requirements. 

    The Portal product family includes complementary bollards for white light illumination or colored accenting, as well as an exterior rated EXIT bollard.
