Bollards are fixtures fitted in pathways and sidewalks on streets. They are short, vertical, and sturdy posts used for protecting the perimeters of a specific area. There are also solar-power bollard lights which are the same fixtures but with illuminating fixtures attached to them.

In this blog, we will tell you how solar bollard lights are a cost-friendly and affordable option for you.

How can solar-powered bollard lights benefit you?

If you want to support the environment, solar bollard lights can offer you just that! Let’s explore the benefits of installing these light fixtures:

  • Solar bollard lights are not connected to any main electricity grid. They are connected to solar panels that consume the sun’s energy. This helps in reducing significant power supply costs and the impact on the environment.
  • The bollard is only illuminated when needed, that is, in the night after sunset. It works by harvesting the sun’s energy during the day, through a monocrystalline solar panel. The panel has a built-in photo sensor that switches the light on at the sun sets and switches off at dawn. This approach to the way these solar bollard lights work promotes energy saving.
  • These bollards also add visual effects to the area, highlighting the landscaping and architectural features. This creates a welcoming and visually appealing space for people to enjoy the aesthetic look.
  • Solar-power bollard lights are suitable for sidewalks, path linings, parking lots, outdoor spaces, and off-grid areas. Illumination of these areas can prove safe for pedestrians and vehicles.
  • They have a life expectancy of 8+ years which adds to the cost-effectiveness of installing these bollards.

Beyond Solar offers solar-power bollard lights, Titan and Vandal. The Solar Titan Bollards work for residential and pathway areas. The Solar Vandal Resistant Bollards are designed to last for ages, working better than mainstream bollards.

What is the warranty period on your solar bollard lights?

The warranty period for both the Solar Titan and Vandal Bollards is 5 years.

How do I decide which solar-powered bollard lights I must select?

This depends on the area where you wish to fix your solar bollard lights. Titan is ideal for pathways, private roads, yards, campuses, gates, fences, etc. However, if you require a stronger fixture then Vandal offers the highest vandal-resistant rating of IK10++. This makes it impossible to break and is also waterproof, making it ideal in flood-prone areas and harsh weather.
