Bollards - Versatile outdoor lighting fixtures!
Sometimes referred to as street furniture bollards when used
to prevent movement of vehicles onto grass and sidewalks, these
same post structures are also quite popularly used for outdoor lighting.
Bollard light fixtures can be made from many different materials
including: plastic, steel and extruded aluminum. Generally set at
intervals to delineate an area, residential and commercial short
post bollards can be both highly functional for security lighting
as well as being decorative.
Bollard lights: residential and commercial illumination
For residential use, bollard post fixtures come in a variety of
sizes for various lighting needs and uses. One use is bollard address
numbers that light at night and let visitors know which house number
is yours. Shorter versions with lighting that illuminates from attractive
grill bands is an popular decorative fixture style.
Looking much like rounded rockets or rounded posts, bollards can
be used for pathway lighting
and well incorporated into the overall landscape lighting plan.
Used as spread lights, bollards can be used to light a symmetrical
area to highlight plants and low shrubbery.
Bollards can also be used as security lights for commercial use
or exterior home lighting. To accommodate the various niches where
bollard lamp fixtures can be used there are a number of manufacturers
producing these lights. From designer landscape lighting manufacturers
such as Focus, Hadco, Arroyo Craftsman and more, to specialty manufacturers
such as URBACO designing retractable bollards with exceptional resistance
to impact and high durability. Flexible and simple to use, the bollards
can be incorporated in complete and sustained security systems.
