Product: SOLABOLLARD Gen 1 x 14

Project description:

St Ignatius needed a reliable, vandal resistant solar bollard to provide pathway lighting within the grounds of the school. Budget was tight; lighting was planned to maximise lighting priority areas, and a decision to space the bollards further apart along the pathway. 

Spaced at 15m apart, the SOLABOLLARD Gen 1 is still a generous waypoint light.  In the photo “waypoint” is illustrated as the lights indicate “where the path is” from a distance.  However, up close, there will be dark patches along the path between each bollard placement.  As this particular path is not a high traffic pedestrian area at night, further spacing was the compromise to remain within budget, but to achieve night-time illumination of the grounds.
