Globes

(Showing 12 of 195)

We carry polycarbonate and acrylic plastics, in a variety of sizes and neck styles. Here are some helpful guidelines to ensure you are ordering the right product.

Globe Sizes

Our globes are listed by their overall diameter, typically in 2-inch increments (10 inch, 12 inch, etc). To easily check the size of your current globe, put your measuring tape into the opening all the way to the other side, then round up to the nearest 2-inch size. Neck opening sizes are also measured by diameter.

Materials and Colors

Acrylic globes are the most common type. They will not yellow over time, and have greater clarity, but are less durable. More expensive Polycarbonate globes are impact-resistant and much more durable, but do tend to yellow somewhat when exposed to UV light. They are more suitable for indoor industrial applications.

Both types come in a variety of finishes (depending on size & material), including clear, white, clear prismatic, bronze, smoke, and frosted (sometimes designated LD for use with LED corn bulbs to improve light dispersion).

Neck Types

We sell fitter necks (sometimes also called Flange or Lip fitters), twist-and-lock necks, twist-on, and neckless globes. Note that not all neck styles or sizes are available in all globe sizes and materials. Neckless globes can be custom cut to your specifications by the factory. Note that all orders for custom globes are non-returnable.

Other Globes

We also sell acorn-style street light globes, along with teardrop shapes and a few other specialty items. If you don't see what you need, feel free to contact us!
