Manufactured using solid Radiata Pine South African timbers renowned for their low split properties and no feathering. These stylish Natural Pine bollards are fully sanded to give a smooth top quality finish and pressure treated with Tanalith E preservative in accordance with BS8417 to meet Use Class 4.
Bollards have a 15 year warranty as standard. The Radiata is designed so that 300mm - 400mm of the wooden bollard can be securely mounted in-ground
The light is emitted from a low voltage solid brass 'bricklight' in a charming rustic bronze finish. The 12v brass light houses 2 x LED G4 bulbs in either a warm or daylight white.
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.
The colour of a lamp is defined as a measurement called kelvins. A standard GLS light bulb in your house would be 2,700 kelvins which is in the warm colour spectrum and a lamp with 5,000 kelvins would be at the very cold white spectrum. Getting the right colour temperature of a lamp does matter as the warm colour wavelength helps to soften the tone of the area and gives a warm soft relaxed feel and ideal for colourful flower beds and rockery areas especially with wooden bark and at the other end of the scale a 4,000 to 5,000 kelvin lamp colour would be used against a light background such as white walls or to accentuate grey blueish foliage in shrubs and small trees. When you buy a new, energy efficient bulb, keep your application and colour scheme in mind and make sure to buy the bulb with a colour temperature to match.
