These professional and robust illuminated bollards with photocell have a Lighthouse head and a matt garden green or graphite black finish. 3 different heights are available (600mm, 800mm or 1000mm) - a height suitable for every application such as driveways, paths and sectioned areas. There are also two styles of head to choose from, one being a 'domed' top and one being a 'pillar' (flat) top. Our large range of pro bollard lighting is also ideal for use in more commercial and public areas such as car parks, especially when used with our super bright, high lumen output LED Bulb (See Commercial LED Bollards).
The inbuilt photocell dusk to dawn sensor automatically turns the bollard light on when it detects dark (dusk) and off again when it detects light (dawn). This means there is no need to remember to switch the fitting on and off manually, and will generally result in less product maintenance. This photocell bollard is an ideal and effective way to reduce energy bills yet add security.
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 bing 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:
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.
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.
