How Our Solar Lights Align with the Goals of the International Dark Sky Association
At Solar Lighting Designs, we sell a wide range of solar lighting products that have been designed to effectively illuminate areas while minimising as much excess light as possible. This is achieved though intelligent manufacturing processes, utilising lenses that reduce the excessive spread of light as well integrating smart programming which reduces lighting output at certain times at night, or when no motion from people is detected. Through a desire to continue our minimisation of excess light pollution across our current and emerging products, our shared goals have led us to partnering with the International Dark Sky Association. The International Dark Sky Association (IDA) aims to reduce light pollution by providing tools and resources to policymakers that promote responsible outdoor lighting. Solar Lighting Designs reflects the same ideals as the International Dark-Sky Association and recognises the importance of minimising light pollution globally. The previously mentioned design and software innovations have been integrated into a wide range of our products, including many of our solar streetlights, solar bollards lights and solar floodlights. An example of this is the motion sensor technology we apply to our commercial solar streetlights, solar floodlights, and solar bollards, which minimise lighting output of the products to 20%-30% when people aren’t around. Our ‘Atlas’ style solar streetlight range and our ‘Venus’ solar floodlight range both offer timed programming modes as well as P.I.R (passive infrared) sensors. Furthermore, our ‘Blade’ style commercial solar streetlights boast all the above, but also includes completely customised programming modes and adjustable lighting arrays combined with optics that grant the range a UWLR (upward waste light ratio) of 0. If you would like to learn more about our commercial solar lighting bollards, solar floodlights, solar streetlights, or any of our solar lights that we sell in Australia, feel free to call us on 1300 76 52 65 and talk to one of our lighting consultants.

The Benefits of using SLD Commercial Solar Bollards
Solar bollard lights are an affordable and effective lighting solution for home or public areas that offer several benefits over AC powered lighting. The most obvious benefit is the lower installation cost and no on-going electricity costs. To install mains powered lighting, servicemen must be hired to do cabling and conduiting, running wires under the ground from a power source to the newly installed lights – the cost of which can be hundreds of dollars per metre. Our commercial solar bollards are an all-in-one unit that can be surface mounted at no extra costs. While we offer a wide range of overhead solar lights throughout Australia, these are not always suitable or needed for every lighting project. Home gardens typically require ambient lighting rather than floodlighting, and the aesthetic of public parks can be easily disturbed if four metre lighting columns are erected all over the place. SLD solar bollard lights offer aesthetic lighting with a wide range that is suitable for homes and commercial public use, with RGB lighting options and vandal resistant options for areas where vandalism is a concern. As an Australian owned company with manufacturing warehouses, SLD has the benefit of being able to offer our customers customised bollard stems in a variety of colours, materials and finishes to ensure they match the aesthetic of the area they are being installed in. Furthermore, with minimal required maintenance (occasionally cleaning the solar panel) and a minimum battery lifespan of 6 years which are very easily replaceable at low cost, our customers can rest assured of the simple effectiveness of our products. If you would like to learn more about our commercial solar lighting bollards or any of our solar lights that we sell in Australia, feel free to call us on 1300 76 52 65 and talk to one of our lighting consultants.

The Benefits of Solar Bollards and Solar Security Lights for Your Home
Solar Lighting Designs stock a wide range of commercial solar lights for private and commercial use. Apart from the operational and installation cost savings when comparing solar lights to mains powered lighting alternatives, our range of lighting also offers aesthetic and security benefits for our residential and commercial customers. The aesthetic ambient lighting provided by solar bollards is the perfect addition to heighten any home garden. With simple installation, high quality manufacturing that ensures the products withstand the elements and no ongoing operation costs, all our commercial solar bollards offer our customers hassle free lighting solutions. Additionally, our solar bollards and solar floodlights can be used to illuminate pathways leading to homes, minimising the risk of accidents at night. While there are obvious aesthetic and safety benefits to outdoor commercial solar lights, as well as economic benefits when compared to AC powered lighting alternatives, a readily overlooked benefit is one of home security. Significant study has gone into the effects of residential and street lighting on criminal behaviour, and results have shown that robbery is significantly reduced through increased ambient lighting around the home. “The assumed anonymity from darkness promotes moral transgressions; darkness also impairs vision and hence reduces the ability to detect an approaching robber and subsequently identify them” (Fotios, Robbins and Farrall, 2021). Due to this, solar lighting bollards and solar floodlights have the benefit of acting as solar security lights, deterring criminals from breaking into your property. To learn more about solar bollard lights, solar floodlights, or any other of the solar lights that we sell in Australia, visit the products online or give us a call at 1300 76 52 65.
