These robust, professional LED bollard lights with PIR Motion Sensor with Root Mount are a Professional 'In-Ground' Root Mount System and 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 400-500mm 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.
A replaceable 20W LED corn bulb is supplied with each bollard with an incredibly high lumen output. The Ledifice is ideal as amenity lighting for larger, commerical or public areas where a high level of light is required without the need to turn the fittings on and off manually, such as car parks, lakes, golf courses etc. A perfect alternative to metal halide or SON lamps which take time to warm up.
The integral PIR sensor switches 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.
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 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).
