    Surge in solar lights the way in 2017 for Bollards HQ

    By Andrew Thornley | Posted Friday, November 09, 2018


     We have completed projects in excess of £70,000 so far this year, following a huge rise in demand for solar bollards.

    After introducing our range of solar bollards in 2016 we’ve seen demand for the product from councils and architects across the country increase ever since.

    Jonathan Goss, managing director at Bollards HQ, commented on the rising pressure to reduce cost and improve sustainability is the main driving forces behind the growing clamour for solar solutions.

    He said: “Everyone is aware of the importance of reducing carbon emissions and increasing sustainability. It’s important the street furniture industry innovates to provide solutions that help those in charge of procuring the products which adorn our town centres to meet these aims.

    “I’d go as far as to say that within the next 10 years, the majority of the bollards we see on our streets will be solar bollards – it’s the clear direction of travel within our industry. When you see the additional safety, sustainability and cost benefits they provide, that shouldn’t be surprising.”

    Solar bollards do not require any electrical connections, and can provide lighting visible at 10 and 20 metres depending on their light setting.

    Rather than being powered by sunlight, they are powered by ultra violet light which ensures they charge effectively on overcast days.

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