CARA 38w Turtle-Friendly Light: LED, Lens, and Performance

The 38w LED array emits 1,738 lumens. Its LED array has an aluminum board with copper tracings to increase the fixture’s lifespan while decreasing lumen depreciation. The array is custom engineered specifically to ensure maximum heat dissipation.

Electronic 1-10v dimmable drivers are standard and easily accessed for driver maintenance. If you don’t need to use this feature, simply have your electrician use the standard wiring (also included).

The lens has a mechanically applied gasket that creates a dependable seal and ensures the fixture’s IP66 rating. The fixture comes with a tempered clear glass lens that provides maximum light output. Alternately, choose the flat prismatic lens option for diffused light. Learn more about lenses at Access Fixtures Prismatic Lenses vs. Clear Glass Lenses.

CARA 38w Turtle LED Light Housing and Mounting

The CARA 38w Turtle LED light’s slimline housing is the second component of the IP66 seal. It also serves as the fixture’s heat sink.

The fixture housing and door frame are both die-cast aluminum. The 100% copper-free alloy contains no recycled content—recycled aluminum tends to degrade due to accumulated impurities. Screws are mounted from the top to preserve the streamlined architectural finish. The nickel-plated stainless steel hardware prevents seizing.

The fixture is 11.75″ x 9.5″ x 3.63″ and weighs 11 lbs. The mounting options are as follows:

  • Direct Square Mounting Arm (AF33XKH25A)
  • Easy-Hang Wall Bracket (AF33XKHEH)
  • Slip Fitter Mount for 2 3/8″ Tenon (AF33XFL73SFX)
  • Steel Yoke Mount (AF33XKH25Y)
  • Two-Piece Swivel Bracket (AF33XFL73BR)

Mounting brackets have bronze powder coat finishes. Choose mounting heights from 10 to 20 feet to provide ideal light levels and uniformity. Our team can also help you navigate EPA ratings, wind loads, and weight restrictions, if applicable. For exacting lighting requirements, request a photometric report for your layout. For details or to discuss your specific project, call an Access Fixtures lighting specialist at 800-468-9925.
