Fortress Root Mount Bollard Light – Professional Root Mount System – Green or Black


This commercial root mount bollard light (in ground), has a sturdy Fortress head. The Professional ‘In-Ground’ Root Mount System is for extra security. Replacing the standard body and mounting base, the root mount bollards have longer tubes. At least 400mm secures / concretes in place without losing any height above ground. A mounting bar inside the tubular body also anchors the bollard when set into concrete. An optional secure cable outlet allows easy wiring after the bollard fixes 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 is a choice of height (600mm, 800mm or 1000mm) as well as  a garden green or graphite black finish. Ideal for driveways and paths, 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, for a completely rustproof and non-corrosive model.

This Fortress Root Mount Bollard Light head guards and protects the internal UV-stop polycarbonate lens and lamp from damage and vandalism. 6 rings of robust aluminium surround the area. This makes it perfect for use in higher risk areas where damage is more likely to occur, such as gravel drives, public places, amenity lighting and areas where garden machinery may be used.

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.
