Bollard lights are a form of path lighting typically used for walkway lighting, sidewalk lighting, parking lots, and boardwalks around locations such as residences, universities, medical campuses, communities, and other places where path lighting needs to be attractive, durable and consistent. Bollards are a great way for homeowners to add clear property markers along driveways and guest areas. In commercial applications, you can use commercial grade bollard lights from Bega Lighting, Tech Lighting, Wac Lighting, Philips Hadco, and Access that are designed to handle the weather the additional requirements. For decades the experts at Brand Lighting have been helping clients find the right bollard path lighting for their projects.

Designer Bollard Lights from Brand Lighting
Bollards come in a variety of shapes and sizes depending on your installation location. Finding the right combination of size, shape, and specifications is critical to achieving your desired lighting effect. Bollards are available in modern and traditional styles as well as in a limited selection of outdoor all weather finishes and materials.
Line vs Low Voltage Bollard Lights
When selecting bollard lights you will find line voltage bollard lights as well as modern low voltage bollards available. For new bollard lighting installations we strongly recommend selecting a fixture that uses integrated LED technology which reduces energy consumption as well as provides more precise color and a much longer lifetime. Many LED bollard lights are rated to 70% intensity after 50,000+ hours making them ideal for commercial as well as residential applications.
Line voltage systems, which can be installed directly to a 120VAC line, are typically found for halogen and incandescent bollard lights. Line voltage bollard light fixtures must have a ballast or driver that works with the line voltage at the point of installation. If you require assistance locating lamps or parts for low voltage systems be sure to ask us by chat or phone, we can help you find many bollard path lighting parts and accessories.
Selecting Color Temperature for Bollards
The color of light that the bollard outputs falls within a range of approximately 2500K (warm color) to 4500K (Cool blue color) where K is Kelvin and is a measurement of the warmth of a light source. Lower color temperatures (lower Kelvins) create a warm, comfortable atmosphere, while higher color temperatures (higher Kelvins) are traditionally associated with corporate and industrial settings.
Depending on your application you may need to consult your local code for guidance on color, brightness and spacing for bollard lights. The aesthetic and certainly the curb appeal of your lighting will greatly depend on your selection of color temperature. Find a color temperature that will complement your landscape while providing sufficient illumination to safely navigate your pathways. The most popular color temperatures include 3000K, 4000K, and 5000K. If you need help finding the right specifications for your project simply call or chat with our bollard experts.
Selecting Finish & Material for Bollard Lights
Bollards come in materials and finishes strong enough to endure consistent exposure to the weather. Within our bollard lighting selection you will find marine grade materials including stainless, composite, concrete, and aluminium. If you are lighting pathways for a commercial property refer to your city ordinance for compliance requirements. If you are choosing bollard lights for your home, first determine the type of weather conditions your property is exposed to. If you are located by the sea you should consider marine grade rated bollards. If you are along a city path, you can choose from a larger range of materials and aesthetics such as aluminium and concrete. The selection of standard colors and finishes can be customized by many manufacturers upon request. If you are looking for a colored bollard light or colored finish ask our showroom representatives about color and finish options.
Selecting Light Output and CRI for Bollard Lights
Another important specification to consider for your path lighting is the luminosity (the light output) and the CRI (color refractive index). The luminosity of your lighting will be described in lumens with the higher the rating the greater the light output. Delivered lumens and measured lumens may differ so be sure to pay attention to the correct specification.
The CRI or color refractive index is essentially a measure of color reproducibility versus that of natural sunlight. The higher the CRI the more accurate colors in that light will be represented to the human eye. Bollards will typically have an 85 or greater CRI rating which can affect the look and feel of your property. For a more natural color in your landscape lighting a higher CRI is recommended.

LED Bollard Lights
Modern LED bollard lights are energy efficient and significantly reduce the lifetime operating costs of your path lighting system compared to conventional halogen or incandescent lighting. The advantages of led bollard lights include reduced cost of operation, more consistent color and brightness output and less required maintenance. When selecting a new bollard lighting system we highly recommended you consider low voltage led bollard lights. Most major brands have replaced many of their traditional lamps with LED and you should too!
Commercial Lighting Bollards
The most common application of bollard lights is along pathways and entrances to commercial properties. Bollards are used extensively along walkways in commercial properties such as schools and universities, medical campuses, retail stores, banks, hotels, restaurants, bars, and shopping plazas.

Brand Lighting has the most unique set of lighting. Fully worth the investment! And they will work with you to ensure your investment keeps on working. I bought some custlm lights 13 yrs ago and they stopped working. Brand Lighting helped me get them repaired. It took about 2 months but they didn't give up or get an attitude. They worked with me following up until the lights were fixed. Naomi was awesome!
Happy to have been working with this company for so many years. They have been great at helping me with the LED strip lighting for my remodeling kitchen projects. Noemi and Raya are the best!
I needed some lights urgently to keep my remodel project on schedule. The response and customer service from David and his team was so good, I was shocked. They worked to expedite my order, and when I needed changes, they were very helpful. They also found a bulb I was not able to find anywhere else. I have already placed more orders, and highly recommend them!

Wonderful company with great customer service! I worked with David, who was extremely helpful and got back to us right away regarding all of our questions! We believed that we needed to purchase an entire new light fixture for our store, and David was so helpful and honest in letting us know that we could adjust it ourselves without any additional purchase. Definitely recommend!
