Choosing the Right Poles, Brackets, and Mounting

Brackets, poles, and mounts for LED lighting are everywhere. Chances are, you pass by these fixtures on your way to work every single day. Brackets can be seen on streetlights, highway lights, airport lights, and more. Many LED light fixtures, especially high-wattage fixtures used to light sports arenas and roadways, are mounted on steel poles.

As each lighting project is unique, read on to learn about the most popular types of brackets, poles, and mounts offered by Access Fixtures.

Poles for LED Lighting

Lighting poles form the backbone of many outdoor and industrial lighting systems. Access Fixtures provides a versatile selection of poles made from materials like steel, aluminum, and fiberglass, each suited for different environments and applications.

Steel Poles: Known for their durability, steel poles are offered in heights from 20 to 30 feet, with options for custom cutting to desired lengths. These poles are available in sizes such as 4″x4″ or 5″x5″ and can be installed by either bolting down or direct burial methods. They are designed to support 2 3/8″ vertical tenons and are available in finishes like bronze or custom RAL colors.

Aluminum and Fiberglass Poles: These materials offer lighter weight and can be essential in areas with specific environmental concerns, such as high winds or corrosive conditions. Fiberglass poles, in particular, meet higher EPA standards and are often chosen for their resistance to weather and environmental degradation. Decorative options are plentiful, ranging from fluted and smooth to variously styled square poles. Post Light Packages
