This 'Windsor' series light fixture offers a more traditional appearance, as well as offer a good level of light output. This light will fit directly to the top of an existing 3" diameter round pole. It's the largest solar powered pole top light on the market, and is the only one that includes user programmable features.

This solar powered, commercial grade, post to fixture is our own (patent pending) design. It is ideal to install onto an existing pole making it an ideal choice for retro-fit applications for electric or gas light replacement. The aluminum lampshade is fitted with four glass panels and contains a super bright LED bulb that screws in to the Edison bulb holder. Supplied with a 3W (300 Lumen) bulb. This fixture includes a programmable control module, which allows for customized illumination time. There are three powerful solar panels that are each built neatly and discretely into the top of the lampshade. When installed at a height of around 10’ the solar panels are barely noticeable and blend in within the design of the lampshade. The light will automatically illuminate when it gets dark, and typically illuminates from dusk to dawn (when using the 3W LED bulb). The user/installer can set the programmable control module to enable the light to come on at dusk and illuminate for a pre-set amount of hours creating a single timed mode. A dual timed mode is also available with the MPPT control option. This allows a timed mode after dusk and a timed mode before dawn. Color of light output is warm white. Color of product is black.

Popular Uses
 

This solar pole top light can be used to replace a lamp that is damaged, or where the electric cable is defective. It is also a great replacement for existing gas lamps. This light is a popular choice with property developers, HOAs and communities etc.

Please Note: This product is a special order and is non-returnable except in the event of a fault (during its warranty period) when the product, once returned will be repaired or replaced.

The solar panel must be installed in a location where it can receive full direct sunshine (when available) and usually set facing South at an appropriate angle (where adjustment options allow). The solar panel must not be installed in a shaded or part shaded location and never indoors. The standard specifications of the system (particularly the solar panel Wattage and battery capacity) may need to be adjusted. These components are determined by your geographic location, power consumption (LED Wattage) and the total amount of hours of illumination time required. Such changes to the standard specifications may increase or decrease the cost shown. Please contact us for more information or assistance. The illumination time is estimated and subject to various factors including (but not limited to) geographic location, seasons, temperature, weather conditions & location of product etc. The illumination time of most solar lights can reduce during winter months when the weather is poor and the days are shorter. During this time insolation hours decrease accordingly. Shorter illumination time due to one or more of the above factors does not define the product as being ‘defective’ or ‘not as described’. All solar lights must be used in a completely dark location at night time otherwise they may not illuminate. Nearby strong lighting sources or ambient lighting may affect the operation of a solar light. This does not define the product as being 'defective' or 'not as described'. Please note, if you do not install or use this product for several months the battery may discharge naturally on its own. By allowing a battery to deep discharge it may cause irreversible damage as the battery may then lose the ability to recharge or hold a full charge. Although unlikely, we reserve the right to supply this product with any minor alterations or minor changes to the specifications (shown above by text description or by photographs) due to different supplies or product batches received, incorporating such product changes made by the manufacturer, without further notice. Descriptions, specifications and photographs are updated regularly but may not be current when minor changes to a product have only recently been made.
