These vandal resistant solar powered walkway lights are suited for public parks, beachfronts, commercial driveways or anywhere vandalism or theft is a concern.
- Ecological concerns – breeding grounds for sea turtles, bats and many other insects and animals (especially near the ocean) can be majorly disrupted by the impacts of artificial lighting. Artificial lights, particularly near turtle nesting grounds, can be mistaken for moonlight and disorientate the turtles. Effective wildlife friendly lighting must be shielded, kept low to the ground, be low-wattage and emit a light wavelength of 560 nanometres or higher which to the human eye appears amber and is invisible to most wildlife. Our ‘Wildlife friendly’ Vandal Resistant Solar Bollard utilise this wavelength and are specifically designed to be placed near animal resting grounds, to both guide pedestrians and add non disruptive lighting to nearby animals.
- Other lighting forms not suitable – Sometimes overhead lighting isn’t a suitable solution for customers lighting requirements. These reasons can include budget limitation, inability to install lighting columns, the need to limit excess lighting, no availability of mains power and more. In these cases, solar bollard lights are the most suitable option, as they provide high levels of lighting at a far lower cost to overhead lighting options.
- No ongoing costs – Solar powered walkway lights offer a low-cost alternative to AC powered lighting. After fixing the solar powered bollards to a stable surface, they are ready for operation – No need for trenching, cabling, conduiting or power bills.
