Surge in solar lights the way in 2017 for Townscape

After we introduced our range of solar bollards a few years ago we have seen demand for the product from councils and architects across the UK continue to increase.

Speaking about the huge upsurge in demand for solar products, a Townscape Products spokesperson, said pressure to reduce cost and improve sustainability were the key driving factors behind the growing clamour for solar solutions.

“Thanks to this innovation, our solar technology is now advanced enough to revolutionise the way bollards can be used. Thanks to motion-sensor technology installed in our solar bollards, they can adjust between providing low-level lighting and brighter lighting when approached.

“This helps increase safety as the bollards can provide lighting in poorly lit areas. It also helps ensure these bollards offer greater visibility for traffic at night time – minimising the risk of collision. With the bollards charged through daylight hours, there is no cost associated with providing the lighting – making them a very cost-effective option."

Solar bollards can provide lighting that is visible at 10 and 20 metres and does not require any electrical connections.

They are powered by ultra violet light, as opposed to sunshine, which ensures they charge effectively on overcast days.

A fully-charged solar bollard from Townscape can provide lighting for 10 days before it needs to be charged again.
