Our engineers have been busy replacing lighting bollards due to damage and clients wishing to upgrade to LED bollards. So, we use this type of lighting being popular on our social housing contracts for lighting walkways and parking areas.
Why choose lighting bollards?
Lighting posts or bollards prove an excellent choice when you wish to light areas at a low level and have no place to install a standard light. Secondly, lighting bollards come in many designs that let electrical designers select one that suits the installation area. Finally, with most manufacturers offering LED models, they can also be a cost-effective solution.
The only consideration is that when installing them you will require a small concrete pad on which to install the lighting bollard. Our electricians will carry out these works as part of the installation or replacement.
Replacing Lighting Bollards
This method of lighting is often installed in landscaped areas surrounding parking areas. This can sometimes result in cars colliding with them and resulting in them requiring replacement. So replacing a bollard is straight forward when you have the experience. Our social housing contracts regularly require these replacement works. This requires in most incidences the existing concrete pad to be replaced due to the replacement bollard being a different manufacturer. Finally, most lighting posts that we now replace or install is LED as they are our client’s preference.
In most replacement works the existing cabling can be used to reduce the electrical cabling works involved.
LED Lighting Solutions for communal parking areas
The LED Bollard features an internal frosted diffuser coupled with a silver optical controller to ensure minimal upward glare and asymmetrical spread of light. The LED Bollard is manufactured from die-cast aluminium and features a strong transparent UV stabilised polycarbonate diffuser which provides high efficiency and vandal resistance. The unit benefits from an IK10 mechanical impact rating and minimised maintenance being rated at 100,000+ lifetime hours. Furthermore, the Led bollard is 10 watts providing a substantial saving over conventional lighting.
The electrical works in this case study took 1/2 a day similar jobs with larger numbers can take several days. All works are quoted in advance and but may require a survey which we will carry out free of charge.
