Asked Questions About
Our Stonelight Concrete Bollards
do we install the concrete bollards?
Installation is recommended with paved concrete footings approximately 8" to 10 " below ground level for all concrete bollards unless they have rebar spokes on the bottom to install into predrilled stone surfaces. Once the Stonelight® is in place, pour 4" of concrete around all four sides and bottom. In areas where freezing temperatures are common, footing should extend below the frost line.You will have to provide the footings and the hook-up.
How are Stonelight concrete bollards shipped?
We ship Stonelights by our carrier on a pallet that has protection around the Stonelight so it won't be damaged.
We build a triangular tent on top of the pallet so the trucker cannot set other merchandise on top of the pallet.
The trucker will call 24 hours in advance to coordinate the delivery.
What if the Stonelight Bollards are damaged?
If the Stonelight is destroyed or damaged in shipping, send us a picture. We will send you a replacement. If the damage is slight, we will send you a patch kit. The Stonelight is the same color throughout so the patch becomes invisible. You may call our 800 number with any questions you have about using the precast concrete bollard patch kit.
Can any light be wired in any Stonelight Bollard Lights?
No, refer to the reference guide sent with every Stonelight concrete bollard light. Fluorescent fixtures cannot be used in areas where the temperature in winter remains below 32° for long periods of time.
Will concrete bollards crack in extremely cold weather?
No, we put an additive in our concrete to keep moisture from forming inside our bollard and which prevents expansion and contraction from forming cracks.
When I order a low voltage Stonelight, do I need
an external transformer?
All low-voltage fixtures require a transformer. We can supply either transformers built into the Stonelights or remote transformers that are plugged into the 110-volt outlet. Remember, due to voltage drop, low voltage fixtures in our concrete bollard lights should not exceed 100' from a transformer.
How big does the solar panel have to be? And how far can the solar panel be from the bollard lights?
We determine the solar panel size by the number of solar bollards and the wattage of the lamps. Call us with the required information and we will determine the size of the panel.
Will the LEDs give me enough light on my walkway?
Since the LEDs are installed in our bollards so they will be 24" above grade,
they will produce enough light to illuminate a walkway.
