LED fixtures are smart and efficient. They are relatively new to the market but more and more people are seeing the value in using them for longer lamp life (they require less bulb changes) and they use less power. There are some other advantages too. They can be somewhat easier to install and sometimes required less or lower power transformers. A typical low voltage light might use a 20 watt bulb. A suitable LED replacement fixture may draw only a few watts of power. There are many reasons to use LED lights. One downside is that most LED lights cannot be dimmed. But they are the future of lighting!

  •  Efficiency – LED lights offer more light output using less energy, cutting energy use for standard bulbs by over 50% for landscape lighting and outdoor lighting.
  • Environmentally Friendly – other bulbs have toxic mercury or other harmful components that are leaked when broken, however standard LED lights do not.
  • Durability – LED lights last for a very long time, with standard LED lights lasting for 35,000 to 50,000 hours, and they fade gradually over time rather than completely burning out.

 

They are more affordable than ever and offer longer life and less energy usage than standard bulbs. The same effect can be  created using LED as would be possible with halogen or incandescent for outdoor landscape lighting projects, when appropriately used in a landscape. LED lights can be useful in many different parts of an outdoor landscape lighting project such as pathway landscape lighting, pool lighting, ambient landscape lighting and in many other areas.

For the illumination of pathways and horizontal lighting a bollard/ beacon fixture is ideal.

When you think of bollard lights you may first think of commercial bollard lights as they are most often used to light pathways and landscaped spaces in public areas like businesses or parks. But bollard lighting, especially some of the new styles now available at Norburn, can also be effectively and attractively in residential landscape lighting applications as well.

If you have a long driveway or a larger property with walkways bollard lights can be used as a good choice. Traditionally bollard lighting is used to separate pedestrian and non-pedestrian areas so they work well as path lights or along a long driveway.

If you don’t have a large property or you simply want smaller lights you can find some very attractive small bollard lights also called mini bollards and even smaller versions called beacons.

Bollard Landscape Light

Bollard landscape lights can work really well either at the beginning of the driveway, one on either side, or by your entryway. They can help provide definition while also supplying additional light to highlight a landscaped area and also provide greater visibility at night.

Bollard landscape lighting is also commonly used to separate different landscaped areas of the yard. They can be used by stairs to provide additional light or in areas where the landscape changes and there are terraced levels. Often times compact bollard lights work well for terraced landscape lighting..

When thoughtfully planned and installed bollard landscape lighting can greatly improve the look and feel of your yard at night.

We are proud to introduce the latest collection of Bollards from Phillips Hadco now in stock at Norburn.
