LEDifice Commercial LED Bollard Light - 0.6m, 0.8m, 1m - Green or Black


These professional LED bollard lights are a revolution in bollard lighting, extremely robust and come with a replaceable 20W LED corn bulb supplied with each bollard with an incredibly high lumen output which means they can be spaced much further apart than those fitted with normal filament bulbs. The Ledifice is ideal as amenity lighting for larger, commerical or public areas where a high level of light is required such as car parks, lakes, golf courses etc. Instant bright white light is generated, which is also pleasant on the eye. As such it is ideal for use with most PIR systems.

3 different heights are available: 600mm, 800mm or 1000mm, 2 colour options: garden green or graphite black powder coated finishes, and 2 styles of head (domed of flat pillar designs). The green fittings are 70mm taller reflected in the drop down menu above.

Each bollard is supplied complete with a removable internal mounting base as standard, which can be attached to expanding achor bolts, root mounting J-Bolts, or mounted onto any flat surface. Alternatively, a Professional Root Mounting System is available.

A clear, UV stop polycarbonate diffuser surrounds the centre section of the head (spares available) and silver aluminium internal louvres add character to the bollard as well as acting as anti-glare shields  / protecting the LED bulb. The head and 2.5mm thick extruded aluminium cylinder of the bollard light are created from heavy duty die-cast aluminium, and all external screws are allen (socket) type made from stainless steel, resulting in a completely rustproof and non-corrosive product.

                                                                
 

Bollard types and spacing


Bollard lights are available in a massive choice of styles, finish and lamp options. You need to think about how the light will be used for example a small garden pathway, the main driveway, to illuminate steps etc.  If you are within 20 km of the coast you should think about using the wooden bollards or marine grade 316 stainless steel. Some bollards have built in LED lamps  and they generally offer lower levels of light ( lumen's ) than say a compact fluorescent. Also if the lamp is an integral part of the bollard then it cannot be replaced if it fails in future so you will have to purchase a complete new bollard. There are bollards that use GU10 lamps and in this case can be changed for an ECO friendly GU10 LED lamp. The spacing of the bollards will depend on the lamp output, louvre design, height etc but a general rule of thumb would be no less than 3 meters and no more than 12 meters apart. The shorter distance would be for garden pathways and the longer distance is for long drive ways.





             
      

Installation 

Choosing the style of a product is only part of the equation you must also think of where that product will be used and how it will be installed. All exterior lighting products on our web site have a IP rating which is explained further in our design ideas section but in simple terms the IP rating is appropriate to each light fitting and its intended application and is therefore fit for purpose. Water ingress is the enemy for outdoor lighting and the products supplied are only as good as the installation as the weakest point is always cable joints. All joint must be made 100% water tight and this can be done using heat shrink kits, waterproof junction boxes which are then filled with a resin or magic gel mix. All joints where possible should be made above ground for easy access and reduced water ingress. When installing ground buried lights adequate drainage systems should be put in place especially in clay based soil areas


All exterior lights must be installed by a certified NIC EIC electrical contractor and all cable joints must be 100% watertight. There are a selection of waterproof jointing kits and boxes available on this web site.

Lamp colour ( Kelvins )

The colour of a lamp is defined as a measurement called kelvins. A standard GLS light bulb in your house would be 2,700 kelvins which is in the warm colour spectrum and a lamp with 5,000 kelvins would be at the very cold white spectrum. Getting the right colour temperature of a lamp does matter as the warm colour wavelength helps to soften the tone of the area and gives a warm soft relaxed feel and ideal for colourful flower beds and rockery areas especially with wooden bark and at the other end of the scale a 4,000 to 5,000 kelvin lamp colour would be used against a light background such as white walls or to accentuate grey blueish foliage in shrubs and small trees.  When you buy a new, energy efficient bulb, keep your application and colour scheme in mind and make sure to buy the bulb with a colour temperature to match.


                                                            



Light output ( Lumen's )


The amount of light that is produced by a lamp is called lumen's and the more lumen's the lamp has the brighter it will be. Lumen's work in conjunction with kelvins and should not be taken in isolation of each other, for example if you had a very warm white lamp at 2,700 kelvins and it produced 300 lumen's and you then had another lamp which was a cool white 5,000 kelvins which also produced 300 lumen's the cooler lamp colour would always appear brighter to the naked eye than the warmer one this is due to the receptors in the eye that react better to a white light spectrum. Another factor on how bright a light may appear is contrast so if you shine a white 5,000 kelvin light onto a dark wall and a warm 2,700 kelvin lamp onto a white wall the warmer lamp would appear brighter due to the contrast of the material it is focused on. So when choosing a lamp always take into account the area you want to illuminate and think about Kelvins ( colour ),  Lumen's ( brightness) and contrast  ( colour of area).
