Orion Solar Solutions solar-powered lights have virtually no maintenance and no running costs.

Orion’s bollards are ideally suited to areas where pedestrian walkways require illumination at night, thus increasing security and safety.

Redland Shire Council recently installed a total of 10 of Orion’s self contained solar powered bollards to illuminate a pathway through a park.

Each bollard contained a Carmanah 601 solar LED light which has been field proven in rugged marine and military environments. The units were installed in minutes, requiring no trenching for power cables and the lights switch on automatically at dusk and off at dawn.

With virtually no maintenance and no running costs, Orion’s bollards are a fraction of the cost of traditional hard-wired electrical bollards. Redland Shire is currently looking to enhance safety and reduce costs by using Orion Solar Bollards in other projects around the Shire.
