Aluminium Solar Powered Bollard

A classic design aluminum solar bollard, with the PV set in the top of the bollard available in two heights and finished in black, manufactured to  the ISO9001:2008 quality standard.

This bollard comes supplied with ground fixing bolts for securing direct to the ground to a suitable concrete base ready to go.

This solar bollard is fitted with 12 super bright white LEDs and offers an excellent light pattern of 360 degrees. It can be easily installed almost anywhere. Ideal for footpaths, car parks, pedestrian and public realm areas in a choice of two sizes.

Manufactured in all aluminium with a clear polycarbonate lamp diffuser. The light produced is almost 100 Lumens and is emitted via a circular array of twelve high intensity, white coloured, Cree® LEDs within the lens section. In a dark location this bollard is capable of projecting light outwards and downwards for up to 4 meters all around (360 degrees). Overall light visibility of up to 1km. This bollard produces around 630 Lux at source. Available in a choice of two sizes (large or small). Colour of light output is white. Colour of product is black. Sold as a single unit. Both units are 150 mm diameter.

Technical specification

 

  • Typically illuminates from dusk until dawn (where conditions permit).
  • Self contained with no connection to a mains supply.
  • Built-in photocell for automatic dusk-to-dawn operation.
  • All aluminium construction, no parts to rust.
  • Black powder coated finish.
  • Other colours available via large quantity orders only.
  • 3 Integral Ni-Cad rechargeable C-type batteries (1.2v 2800mAh), included and easily

replaceable when necessary.

  • Integral high quality 2.5 Watt solar panel.
  • The small size bollard stands approximately 840 mm high.
  • The large size bollard stands approximately 1040 mm
  • Main body (column section) is approximately 150 mm.
  • The clear lampshade section is approximately 180 mm diameter and 200 mm high.
  • The top section of the bollard is approximately 230 mm diameter.
  • The base section of the bollard is approximately 215 mm diameter.

  

Installation

Easily installed onto almost any horizontal, solid surface such as concrete, tarmac, wood, paving etc.
Installation time is usually less than 5 minutes per bollard.
The base section of the bollard has 4 pre-drilled holes for screw-down or bolt-down installation.
Standard grade, steel bolts are included (expanding anchor type).
You may choose to use stainless steel expanding anchor bolts instead (not included).
The bolt pattern (diagonal centre to centre) is approximately 19 cm.
Spacing is at the owner/installer’s discretion anywhere from 3 meters  to 12 meters apart (subject to any specific requirements).
Spacing at 4 metres apart would typically achieve an approximate 2 Lux light distribution pattern.
Spacing at 5 metres apart would typically achieve an approximate 1.5 Lux light distribution pattern.

Product specific notes

This product is a special order product and is non-returnable except in the event of a fault (during its warranty period) when the product, once returned will be repaired or replaced.

The solar panel must be installed in a location where it can receive full direct sunshine (when available) and set facing South at about a 45-60 degree angle (where adjustment options allow). The solar panel must not be installed in a shaded or part shaded location and never indoors. The standard specifications of the system (particularly the solar panel Wattage and battery capacity) may need to be adjusted. These components are determined by your geographic location, power consumption (LED Wattage) and the total amount of hours of illumination time required. Such changes to the standard specifications may increase or decrease the cost shown. Please contact us for more information or assistance. The illumination time is estimated and subject to various factors including (but not limited to) geographic location, seasons, temperature, weather conditions & location of product etc. The illumination time of most solar lights can reduce during winter months when the weather is poor and the days are shorter. During this time, insolation hours decrease accordingly. Shorter illumination time due to one or more of the above factors does not define the product as being ‘defective’ or ‘not as described’ or ‘not fit for purpose’. All solar lights must be used in a dark location at night time otherwise they may not illuminate. Nearby strong lighting sources or ambient lighting may affect the operation of a solar light. This does not define the product as being ‘defective’ or ‘not as described’. Please note, if you do not install or use this product for several months the battery may discharge naturally on its own. By allowing a battery to deep discharge it may cause irreversible damage as the battery may then lose the ability to recharge or hold a full charge. Although unlikely, we reserve the right to supply this product with any minor alterations or minor changes to the specifications (shown above by text description or by photographs) due to different supplies or product batches received, incorporating such product changes made by the manufacturer, without further notice. Descriptions, specifications and photographs are updated regularly but may not be current when minor changes to a product have only recently been made.
