Ron Tracy, Equine Lighting Specialist. Barn Lights, Horse Barn Lights, Arena Lights, Stall Lights
 In the 13 years I’ve been involved in agricultural  lighting, I have consulted on more than 1,000 indoor   arenas and possibly twice as many stall barns. I’ve   completed designs for veterinary and breeding facilities;      coliseums and stall barns. In all these varied projects,   the issues were the same: the client was concerned about safety, reliability, economy, and effectiveness.     Orion AG fixtures are the safest on the market. They are cool burning with the ballasts and lamps  sealed in a self-extinguishing poly-carbonate shell   with no exposed wiring. The fixtures are free of rusting parts, important in the ammonia rich environment common in AG buildings, The lens on the stall fixture  is made of high impact, shatterproof lexan. All parts  of the fixture are replaceable. Orion fixtures are affordable and economical to operate. If you’re wondering if you can afford to buy our fixtures, I tell my customers, “You can’t afford no to buy them. This is one thing  you are going to put in your horse barn that is guaranteed to make you money!” The fixtures will pay for  themselves within 6 to 12 months and continue to generate income for your farm for years to come. Orion  fixtures are not a retail grade throwaway. They will come on instantly in winter and provide you and your  animals daylight quality light during those long dreary winter months.     Horse owners who breed and/or show have special needs. They need to manage heat cycles and  control hair growth. Because we use full spectrum daylight lamps in our fixtures, a single OW36 Stall Light  will provide enough light to cycle a mare and control hair growth. Orion fixtures are effective.
The Perfect Stall
     “If your horse is sick or suffers an injury, good lighting is essential for accurate assessment of his  condition..., You need good light to check whether your horses’ gums are a normal pink, and to see  whether the “whites” of his eyes are truly white or have a sickly tinge... You likely won’t spot a problem  until it’s obvious your horse is in trouble.”      “In case you didn’t know... incandescent light bulbs are a common cause of barn fires. Old wiring and  cheap sockets meant for 60 watt bulbs get hot when you try to improve lighting by using 100 watt bulbs.  And, the bulbs themselves are hot, fragile, and prone to breakage and shorting when used in barn  conditions with wide temperatures and moisture  fluctuations.”      “I chose light fixtures form Orion West Lighting for  The Perfect Stall. The company’s tough commercial  grade fixtures are fully encased in a durable, rust-proof, gasket-sealed fiberglass housing that keeps bulbs  confined and isolated form dust, vapor, bugs, and  debris.”      “The unit’s fluorescent bulbs are long-lived  and less fragile than most incandescent bulbs...”      “The OW model fixture, about half the size and  shape of a layer cake, uses 36 watts to produce light  equivalent to 200 incandescent watts without glare  or shadows, and with nearly full-spectrum light for  true-to-life colors. The light produced, when hung  10 feet high over the center of a 12 foot by 12 foot  stall is sufficient for breeding-season manipulation  and winter coat suppression.” - Dr. Karen Hayes •   Significantly less energy for significantly more  	 light. •    Improved visibility and color perception, for  	 accurate observation of your horses’ condition,  	 and easier veterinary exams and treatment. •    A single OW36-model produces sufficient  	 intensity to induce early estrous cycling and        help prevent winter coating. •    Safer: cool, fully contained,  	 watertight and sealed.
