Fortress Dusk to Dawn Bollards – (Photocell) – Green or Black


These professional dusk to dawn bollards are fitted with an in-built photocell, and have Fortress heads in matte garden green or graphite black. 4 different heights are available (400mm, 600mm, 800mm or 1000mm) – a height suitable for every application such as driveways, paths and sectioned areas. There are also 3 styles of head to choose from, ‘domed’, ‘pillar’ or ‘flat’ top.

The head and 2.5mm thick extruded cylinder of the bollard are heavy duty die-cast aluminium. All screws are stainless steel, resulting in a completely rustproof and non-corrosive model.

Importantly, the Fortress head guards and protects the internal UV-stop polycarbonate lens and lamp from damage and vandalism. With 6 rings of robust aluminium surrounding the head, it is perfect for use in higher risk areas. Examples are gravel drives, public places, as well as areas where garden machinery may be used.

The inbuilt photocell sensor

This automatically turns the bollard on when it detects dark (dusk) and off again when it detects light (dawn). This means no need to remember to switch the fitting on and off manually, as well as less product maintenance. Fitted with an E27 LED bulb holder, this photocell bollard is an ideal and effective way to reduce energy bills yet add security.

Comes with the ground mount and anchor bolts as standard.  If you want to use 'J' bolts for installing into wet concrete then order those separately.

Bollard types and spacing 

Bollard lights are available in a variety 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, Copper, Iron, Brass 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. 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 LED lamps and E27 base LED lamps. The spacing of bollards will depend on the type of bollard, louvre design, height and lamp output 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.

                                            


                                            


Lamp colour ( Kelvins )

 

The colour of a lamp is defined as a measurement called kelvins. A standard GLS incandescent bulb in the home 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.
