The Australian and NZ lighting industry generally categorises road lighting as arterial routes, feeder roads, highway and motorway lighting, which tend to be AS 1158 3.1 V category lighting and therefore generally an LED of more than 50w.
For any roads, quality lighting is paramount for safety, therefore it is imperative that even light levels are cast across the entire carriageway, with minimal or no glare.
To achieve this, Orca Solar Lighting® can facilitate a professional lighting design using the most suitable light fixtures, to ensure the lighting outcome is outstanding, complying to the relevant lighting code, and the minimum amount of light poles are utilised to achieve this result.
Road lighting is ‘mission critical’ therefore imperative the solar engine provides sufficient autonomy (battery back-up). This battery back-up requirement is based on NASA solar radiation data on the exact co-ordinates of the location, and allows for maximum average dark out days and the longest winter nights.
The Vertex® solar road light is available on fixed or mid hinge poles, slip based poles, pier or slab cage footings or temporary (relocatable) footings.
