Pro Solar – Super Bright LED Solar Sign Lights

The Signalite is a durable, IP65, high output solar sign light, available in 3 sizes: 5w, 10w and 20w. Each size incorporates high power, long life LEDs in daylight white which emit a high lumens output; the largest with an output of 2000 lumens. A 2000 lumens solar light is equivalent to the Lumena high output 20w LED corn bulb, used in large, commercial style bollards! Alongside the Epistar LEDs, designed to last for up to 50,000 hours, is the reliable polycrystalline solar panel and replaceable Lithium Ion Batteries. These are also expected to last many years.

These solar sign lights, also known as LED trough lights, are perfect for illuminating signs / billboards, as well as above doorways, due to their sleek design and downwards projection. Alternatively, these solar downlights can create dramatic, decorative lighting effects on walls, rather than solely for illuminating signs or doorways. Each wattage is a different length: 30cm, 60cm and 120cm, ensuring there is an option suited to fulfill all requirements. Importantly, the well made, contemporary, sleek design of the Signalite looks attractive in the daytime too.

The Signalite LED Solar Sign Light will be fully charged with 6-8 hours of full sunshine, consequently, lasting for up to 3 days. Therefore, even on cloudy days the light will have retained, and continue to increase it’s charge. It illuminates at dusk for 5 hours at full brightness, and then reduce to 25% for the remainder of darkness. As a result, the battery charge will last longer than if it was at full brightness all night. Even in the dullest of weather, our solar lights will still illuminate, although they may not last the entire night cycle, which in many cases is not a necessity. Installation is simple with keyhole surface mounting.

Solar lighting – the time is now!

The current proactive drive to save our planet is positive and important. Solar energy is one of the World’s most innovative renewable power sources. It uses no power from the grid, just the sun to charge rechargeable batteries during the day, stored to be used at night. Subsequently, other benefits are clear, with no running and installation costs or ongoing maintenance.

Solar is the perfect solution to illuminating areas where hard wiring is not possible. Most importantly, solar is better for the environment. Solar post lights use a natural, clean, renewable energy source – the sun.

As with most purchases, it is important that items are maintained correctly after installation. This is especially important for outdoor lighting which can be affected by the outdoor environment, especially in harsher areas such as coastal areas. By not following the aftercare instructions, which are always included with the relevant product, this may void any guarantees or warranties.

TEAK LIGHTS

Lumena offer a number of Teak bollards and post lights in a range of sizes. Teak wood is a part of the ‘Tectona Grandis’ hardwood species and is highly durable, producing a natural oil which helps protect from outdoor conditions. As Teak is subject to outdoor weather conditions, it starts to age and develop a duller, soft, grey appearance. This elegant, lightweight wood is ideal for both domestic and commercial use and is very easy to maintain.

To add a further protective coating from weather conditions, teak sealer is highly recommended. Lumena always apply at least one coat of Teak sealer prior to dispatch but this should also be applied periodically to help protect and freshen up the path lights.

 

CARE OF STAINLESS STEEL – TIPS

Contrary to popular belief, Stainless steel needs looking after; especially in exposed and coastal areas. If not cleaning on a regular basis, the acid that is ever present in the air ( and salt in coastal areas) will affect the surface causing pitting and even rust like staining (known as ‘Tea staining’ ) to appear.

To keep your lights looking good, simply wipe clean the outside with a damp cloth and then dry once a month, (more frequently in coastal areas). Specialist stainless steel cleaning products can be used (We recommend and stock ‘Kilrock stainless steel cleaner’) but never use an ABRASIVE cleaner. In extreme conditions we recommend applying 2 coats of Clear lacquer to protect the steel surface. (We recommend and stock ‘Simoniz’ clear lacquer).

 

COPPER & BRASS

Both brass and copper are extremely durable materials, with brass being a combination of copper and zinc, meaning neither can rust or corrode. Over time brass will subtly weather and naturally change to a darker colour which will blend in with the garden surroundings. Copper also naturally changes colour quite dramatically, often resulting in a brown or ‘verdigris’ effect, again to blend in with the outdoor surroundings. This is because copper reacts with atmospheric oxygen. Although some people may prefer a pristine, shiny copper finish, the oxide layer in fact prevents corrosion and simply adds to the character of natural copper creating a traditional, ‘olde worlde’ appearance. If a new copper finish is preferred, a layer of lacquer can prevent / slow down the weathering process.

 

240v IN-GROUND LIGHTS & SPIKE LIGHTS

240v fittings can be affected by damp conditions, typically when located outdoors. When a fitting is located outside in the cold air combined with the heat produced by the lamp inside, it is inevitible that condensation will occur, just as it does on bedroom windows in the home. If too much condensation is produced, this could result in the fitting tripping, especially in these types of fittings where a drainage hole is not possible. To combat this, Lumena include silica gel with all 240v in-ground lights and spike light to soak up any excess moisture – these should not be removed but replaced periodically and fittings checked. If any water is sitting in the fitting, this should be tipped out and the fitting safely dried out. Condensation can be more prominent when the fitting has been opened on a damp day, as the damp air will then be trapped inside when re-sealed. Therefore it is recommended that any maintenance, including changing bulbs, is performed on a dry day. An additional practice put in place by Lumena is to apply Lithium Grease to the bulb holder / bulb which acts as an additional seal to prevent tripping. Although this prevents tripping, the fittings will still need to be checked and dried out should water sit inside the fitting. For extra protection, fitting can also be filled with Wiska Gel (electrical insulation).
