WORCESTER, Mass., March 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Access Fixtures has published a new and comprehensive document detailing bollard light spacing to answer the common questions, “How many bollards do I need?” and “How far apart should I place my bollard lights?” Bollard lights are outdoor light fixtures that are ideal for illuminating walkways, streets, and driveways of commercial and public areas. While bollard light styles vary, optics, lamp type and wattage can be different as well. There are three primary optics types available: louvers, standard reflectors, and type 5. The light source can be fluorescent, metal halide (MH), high-pressure sodium (HPS) or LED. Wattage for each type of light source can vary. Knowing how close or far apart to space bollard lights has been difficult. Now, Access Fixtures has published a new comprehensive document that discusses how light source, optics and wattages can affect bollard light spacing and gives suggested spacing based on common applications.

In addition to information, photometric analyses are presented for comparison of light distribution using each optic. Access Fixtures has also provided suggested spacing for common bollard light applications.
