ENOLA_C Out Pole is a modern style path light bollard in Aluminium and Glass with an Anthracite finish. It stands 510mm tall and has an integral 9w COB LED module inside. The colour temperature is 3000k and the lumen output is 700 Lumens. The total consumption of power is 12w. The LED driver included uses 500mA. The LED Module should last for approximately 30000 hours. The beam angle of the head is 35° and the tilt from the head is 45° . The bollard is rated at IP55.
The base plate is 159mm in length, 98mm in width and 10mm high.
The head of the fitting is 100mm in diameter and 117mm in length.
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, 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 can not be replaced if it fails in future so you will have to purchase a
complete new bollard. There are bollards that use GU10 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 mtrs and no more than 12 mtrs apart. The shorter distance would be for garden pathways and the longer distance
is for long drive ways.
Light output ( Lumen's )
The amount of light that is produced by a lamp is called lumen's and the more lumen's the lamp has the brighter it will be.
Lumen's 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 lumen's and you then had another lamp which was a cool white
6,000 kelvins which also produced 300 lumen's 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 on to a dark wall and a warm 2,700
kelvin lamp on to 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 in to account the area you want to illuminate and think about Kelvins ( colour
), Lumen's ( brightness) and contrast ( colour of area )
