The firm exhibited a small selection of their Street Lighting Fittings, several types of brackets, sample street lighting standards and a REVO Traffic Signal at the Blackpool 1932 exhibition.


They exhibited a range of lanterns for sodium vapour and mercury vapour discharge lamps at the APLE's 1936 Conference in Cheltenham. The Hoodalite, Magnalite and Progress lanterns were all shown. - Public Lighting #3, 1936


In 1937, they are exhibiting the C9224 silvered mirror fittings for the 150W SO/H lamp and the C9018 lantern for 400W MA/V lamps. The C9018 comprises a copper frame with copper canopy and cast-iron dome, using lenticular and prismatic glass panels. These in conjunction with stainless steel internal reflectors give directive control of light - APLE Conference Programme 1937


The exhibits in the 1938 conference comprise the latest examples of fittings for use with Sodium and Mercury Vapour Lamps, particularly the horizontal burning types. The firm notes that rapid developments have taken place in recent months, and the new fittings use silver mirrored and prismatic and lenticular glass panels which give exceptional results. - APLE Conference Programme 1938


REVO exhibited and described the C10737 (sodium) and C10766 (mercury) lanterns during this conference. Both lanterns also featured in their adverts. - APLE Conference Programme 1939


The firm report that developments were curtailed during the war but new designs were currently being designed. One interesting exhibit was a lantern using low pressure sodium and gas filled tungsten lamps, designed to overcome the objections by some lighting engineers to the colour of low pressure sodium. The combination of lamps was so disposed that the maximum correcting effect was directed across the roadway where it was of most advantage and detracts least from the remarkable definition obtained from mono-chromatic Sodium light. - APLE Conference Programme 1945
