WORCESTER, Mass., May 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Access Fixtures, a leading U.S.-based manufacturer of commercial and sports lighting, is introducing its new wildlife-friendly amber LED bollard light, boasting the highest lumen output available in any of its bollards to date.
Wildlife-friendly lighting minimizes light pollution in communities where excessive artificial lighting has potential to harm ecosystems, especially in coastal areas where sea turtles need a dark sky to orient towards the ocean. Access Fixtures’ 32w Amber LED Round Dome Top Bollard with Type 5 Glass produces light that is visible to humans, but not to most other species.
“Wildlife-friendly LED bollard lights by Access Fixtures provide the necessary lighting to safely and responsibly illuminate coastal areas without disrupting the local ecosystem,” said Access Fixtures CEO, Steven Rothschild. “The LED array is mounted in the top of the bollard facing down, with 120 degree optics. When combined with the high efficacy of Type 5 glass, this new bollard light produces a level of luminaire lumens superior to any other we have to offer.”
Maintaining all the benefits of LED lighting, the amber LED bollard light minimizes disturbances in sensitive ecosystems. Species affected by artificial lighting can see wavelengths used in traditional light sources, but cannot see longer wavelengths like 590 nm used in amber LEDs.
