Lighthouse Dusk to Dawn Bollard Light (Photocell) – Professional Root Mount System – Green or Black

This professional and robust in-ground bollard light has a Lighthouse head and a matte garden green or graphite black finish. This Professional ‘In-Ground’ Root Mount System is for areas needing extra security. Replacing the standard tubular body and mounting base, the root mount bollards have longer bodies. At least 400mm secures / concretes 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 choice of height is available: 600mm, 800mm or 1000mm – a height suitable for every application such as driveways, paths and sectioned areas. There are also 3 styles. A matte garden green or graphite black finish is available as well as a choice of height (600mm, 800mm or 1000mm). Ideal for driveways and paths, there are also 3 styles of head to choose from: ‘domed’, ‘pillar’ or ‘flat’ top.

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 there is no need to remember to switch the fitting on and off manually, and results in 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.

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

The Lighthouse bollard has a clear, high quality UV stop PC diffuser surrounding the centre section of the head. This enables an even all-round light dispersal and furthermore adds protection to the bulb installed. Further protection is given by internal silver aluminium louvres. These add character to the bollard and importantly, act as anti-glare shields.

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.
