The cover (5) is designed so that fixing means (12-15) are provided, which allow the exchangeable reliable application of different shades (22-24) at the cover (5), with selective damping of the light cone (20) in a radial direction. The cover (5) has a polygon cross section with equal length sides (7-9). These can be provided individually with inner side shades running over the entire illuminating axial length of the cover (5).
