Fencing and railing may keep pedestrians safe at junctions, but providing sufficient lighting for busy thoroughfares and walkways is essential for the general safety. With the onset the winter season, providing sufficient lighting for public spaces becomes ever more important, but what is the right type for your site?
The traditional lighting solution for public areas in the UK is the lamp post. However, these antiquated, cumbersome items often over illuminate a pedestrian area, causing unnecessary light pollution and, in the case of residential areas, growing resentment from residents. Lamp posts are designed to emit a wide spread of light over a large area. Ideal for busy intersections and dangerous junctions, but the lighting requirements in pedestrian areas are very different and require a different solution.
Illuminated Bollards are perfect for pedestrian areas. The light sits lower to the ground allowing the light to spread further and illuminating only the areas that pedestrians need to see. This reduces the amount of light pollution created from wasted light.
The Illuminated bollards from AUTOPA open spaces feature handcrafted louvres, which perfectly spread the light in the required area, while the tough exterior is able to withstand the knocks and bumps that will inevitably occur.
