Professional Illuminated Bollard with Root Mount System - Vandal Resistant

These professional heavy duty commercial standard bollard lights have a lighthouse head and a matt garden green or graphite black finish. Height options suitable for any outdoor area such as driveways, paths and sectioned areas are available with a choice of 600mm, 800mm or 1000mm. There are also two styles of head to choose from, one being a 'domed' top and one being a 'pillar' (flat) top.

This Professional 'In-Ground' Root Mount System is recommended for where extra security and permanence is important. Replacing the standard tubular body and mounting base, these root mount bollards are extended in length so that at least 40cm can be securely concreted in place without losing any height above ground. A strong mounting bar inside the tubular body acts as an anchor when set into concrete, whilst an optional secure cable outlet allows easy wiring after the bollard is fixed in place.

The 'Lighthouse' style bollard light has a clear, high quality UV stop PC diffuser surrounding the centre section of the head which enables an even all-round light dispersal around the bollard and adds protection to the bulb installed. Further protection is added internally by silver aluminium louvres which also add character to the bollard and act as anti-glare shields.

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 security allen socket type made from stainless steel, resulting in a completely rustproof and non-corrosive product.

How far apart should bollards be mounted?

The distance between bollards will vary depending on what light output the bulbs used have, what sort of area is being lit and how much light is required. Below are some guidelines to determine how many bollards may be required for your project based on our recommended bulbs providing a constant light between each fitting: 

  • 11W LED Kosnic (DAYLIGHT WHITE)  -  4m to 6m apart 


In the event of being damaged after installation our supplier may carry stocks of replacement spare parts such as Bollard Heads, PC lenses, Bulb Holders etc. making for a quick repair.



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 and transformer 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 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. If possible use ground surface spike lights rather than a buried light.  Mains 240v cable will have less joint than a low voltage installation but care must be taken with the cable runs.

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.

Light levels ( LUX )

Light levels are measured in something called LUX. Put simply LUX is a measurement of light falling on a given surface area. For example an average LUX of 200 would be needed for an outdoor tennis court for recreational purposes and a side street  walkway would have an average of 5 LUX. To calculate lux levels you need a very good calculator or computer as there is a number of factors that need to be taken in to account.

Average levels of illuminance in Lux

Sunny June day 80000 Lux
Bad light stopped play at Lords 1000 Lux
A well lit office 500 Lux
Main road lighting 15 Lux
A residential side street 5 Lux
A clear moonlit night 0.2 Lux 

Environmental impact

Care should be taken for the environment and local wildlife to maintain the ecological balance. Insects, bats, wildlife can all be effected by  light pollution. The warmer colour spectrum of  ( 2,700 Kelvins ) does not interfere with insects and general wildlife as much as the blue colour spectrum of light around 6,000 kelvins which can disrupt their normal night time activity. This also applies to bats where a anti glare light fittings works better as well as reducing the overall light pollution in the area. You must also be mindful of your neighbors and the effect your lighting can have on them and shining a 500w tungsten halogen flood light in to their windows at night will cause them distress. Try to keep the light in a downward position and local to the items you want to illuminate and even if you want to illuminate tall trees it can be done in a sympathetic way by placing a ground buried or surface spike flood light directly under the trees to illuminate the canopy. Some light fittings also have a anti glare shield fitted to reduce light pollution.
