SBL Solar Bollard Lights

SBL fully sealed, self-contained, marine grade aluminum solar bollard lights offer exceptional performance, durability and impact resistance in the most extreme locations where continuous, full power lighting is required from dusk until dawn, 365 days a year.

SBL solar bollards are both IP68 certified (can be submerged up to 10' in water) and IK10 certified (will withstand serious vandalism and impact by flying or floating debris).

All SBL bollards are custom configured to suit specific geographical locations and site conditions, ensuring the correct power model configuration is supplied for each project.

Plate mount, direct bury, pole mount and wall mount options are available, with or without shade caps. 

Features

No similar product can out-perform the SBL2 Solar LED bollard for quality, durability, low maintenance and continuous performance, especially in locations where cyclones, hurricanes, typhoons, tidal surges, tsunamis and regular flooding are prevalent.

The SBL2 Solar LED Bollards have proven long-term resistance to the most extreme conditions in more than 35 countries. These robust luminaries survive submersion by ocean waves, impact from golf ball-sized hail, constant exposure to the desert sun, covering by snow and attack by vandals.

All SBL solar bollards are custom configured, taking into account the geographical location, the sunlight profile during the winter solstice, the longest night hours and required autonomy in days, and whether the bollards will be subject to shading at any time during the day.

Using this solstice snapshot, we account for the longest winter nights, the shortest hours of daylight, and the low-tracking sun when shadows are longest. This ensures the correct power model is supplied to suit the actual project, not a ‘one-size-fits-all’ assumption that is made with off-the-shelf supplied bollards.

With this customized approach, solar bollards can be supplied (in some locations) which will still operate in full shade or with snow coverage where only ambient irradiation is available to recharge.

Dusk to dawn lighting
Dusk to dawn lighting

LED lights run at full power from dusk until dawn since the correct power model is always supplied for the specific installation location. Lights are not dimmed after a specified number of hours nor use proximity sensors which could be triggered randomly causing over-cycling the battery.

Extended light output

SBL solar bollard lighting can operate for more than 5 days without sunlight depending on LED power rating. Power rating is set for the specific installation location and conditions.

Bird resistant dome top
Bird resistant dome top

With no flat surfaces or edges for birds to grip on, SBL bollards eliminate the need for bird spikes and ensures debris or dust cannot easily settle and reduce the charging capacity of PV panels.

Impact resistant polycarbonate
Impact resistant polycarbonate

Dome top design prevents any direct impact on the solar module due to distance between the dome and the PV cells. A shock absorbing adhesive attaches the solar module to the internal reflector, also reducing the risk of shattering.
