This professional 2.5mm thick die cast aluminium bollard light with PIR motion sensor has a fortress style head and a matt garden green or graphite black finish. 3 different heights are available: 600mm, 800mm or 1000mm, 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.
The integral PIR sensor switched on the bollard light when movement is detected, then off again when the trigger is out of range. A small control box allows various setting to be adjusted, such as the time delay: 5 secs, 10 secs, 1 min, 3 mins and 5 mins, as well as the sensitivity of the sensor and a photocell, night only option.
PIR motion sensor lights are a great energy saver, only turning on when triggered and when light is required. They are ideal for adding security when houses are left unoccupied during holidays as any potential unwanted movement would cause the light to turn on. 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 for more options).
An internal UV-stop polycarbonate lens and 6 rings of robust aluminium protect the lamp from damage and vandalism. This makes it perfect for use in higher risk areas where damage is more likely to occur, such as gravel drives, public places and areas where garden machinery may be used. All screws are stainless steel, resulting in a completely rustproof and non-corrosive model with a high IP Rating of IP65.
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 or 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 LED lamps and in this case can be changed for a
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 for long driveways.
Light output ( Lumens )
The amount of light that is produced by a lamp is called lumens and the more lumens the lamp has the brighter it will be. Lumens 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 lumens and you then had another lamp which was a cool white 6,000 kelvins which also produced 300 lumens 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 6,000 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 ), Lumens ( brightness) and contrast (colour of area).
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 joints 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 electrician and should be signed off by an electrician with Part P certification. all cable joints must be 100% watertight. There are a selection of waterproof jointing kits and boxes available on this web site.
