AIRLITE & AIRLITE STREAM – ANODISED ALUMINIUM BOLLARD LIGHT (12V PLUG & PLAY)


The Airlite is crafted from high quality 3mm thick anodised aluminium and is a contemporary, elegant post light, and is available in heights of 400mm or 600mm. As well as the standard Airlite with 108mm diameter, a slimline version is also available with a 90mm diameter – the name of Airlite Stream. This VERSA 12v plug & play bollard light couldn’t be simpler to install. The 3m cable supplied is capped with a 2 pin plug which simply plugs directly into a transformer (or splitter if multiple fittings are installed), the transformer plugs into a mains socket and it is ready to go. 12v systems are very versatile and perfectly suited to outdoor settings being of low voltage. The post light accommodates a replaceable LED MR16 which are available in a number of wattages and colours. It is often thought that low voltage lights are not as bright as mains voltage but this is not the case.

Use dichroic coloured lenses with an LED bulb to create beautiful coloured effects.


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 modules which generally offer lower levels of light (lumens) than a standard LED GU10 lamp or a compact fluorescent lamp. Also it is likely the LED module is a sealed unit and an integral part of the bollard which cannot be replaced if it fails meaning you will have to purchase a complete new bollard. There are bollards that use GU10 halogen lamps and E27 base lamps and they can be changed for LED lamps. The spacing 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.
