COB In-Grade Series


1185 and 1188 in-grades from Vista Architectural Lighting utilize integrated Chip-On-Board (COB) LED technology and precision optics to achieve high performance distributions of various spreads with controlled cutoff.

  • A patent-pending magnetic hot aiming system allows the rotation of internal tilt optics without opening the fixture.
  • Ventilated flow-through design allows cool air to enter and hot air to be exhausted from the Rough-in Section (RIS) to improve cooling of the LED module.
  • Corrugations in the housing also facilitate air-cooling inflow/hot exhausted air outflow and provide significant RIS load strength, making these recessed in-grades suitable for use where vehicle drive over is a requirement.

Magnetic Hot Aiming

The 1180 In-Grade Series features a patent-pending magnetic hot aiming system that allows for rotation of tilted optics without opening the fixture.

A Vista-supplied magnetic wand is externally applied to the fixture’s lens and then mated with a magnet affixed to the pre-installed tilt optics.

With the wand and magnet mated, the internal tilt optics can be rotated up to 360° within the fixture.
