    Solar-powered solution for exterior waymarking

    Combining the best in technology and sustainable design, Recommended Supplier Signbox has just unveiled the Smartscape Solar bollard… 

    With greenwashing being the hot topic of this week following new research that was published at the Independent Hotel Show, leading sign manufacturer Signbox has unveiled a sustainable and creatively designed waymarking product that will help to create a more conscious hotel exterior.

    The uniquely-designed solar system comprises; four integrated PV panels to ensure light is captured from all angles, an intelligent lithium-ion battery, two motion-detecting PIR sensors and two LED lights. One LED runs continuously at a low level to ensure that the bollard itself can be seen from a distance, and the other, a downlight reflector, is activated within 5m close proximity on each side of the unit by one of the PIR sensors which illuminates the pathway.

    As the bollard is solar powered by it’s own integrated PV panels, trenching (installation) and running costs associated with mains powered solutions are eliminated and maintenance costs are drastically reduced.

    The bollard is available in three housing material options to suit a range of applications; extruded aluminium, sustainable hardwood and performa-cast polymer. With both the aluminium and polymer versions offering a vast range of colour options, as well as the option of embossing the polymer housing, this versatile solution is perfect for any modern green sustainably focussed project.

    The SmartScape Solar Bollard is designed, developed and manufactured in a UK-based, ISO 9001:2015 accredited production facility.

    The standard product has a base plate mounting but there is an option on the aluminium finish and the polypropylene finish for a more cost effective root mounting fixing that can be buried and possible minded in place. We can send a technical specification on this if required.

    This product does comply with the new requirements for “bat friendly lighting”. Bats can not feed at night with light pollution in an upwards direction.
