Cast aluminum lampposts, whether for residential or commercial premises, give any landscaping a clean, polished look. They are both functional and decorative and are made of rustproof, robust materials!
When purchasing this type of outdoor lighting, there are basic points that need to be considered. The first is the type of lighting you want. Low voltage direct current is your first option that is energy efficient and uses a step down transformer. It has low power consumption lamps that produce reduced light output. It’s a great option for light industrial and household use.
The second type is solar lighting, which is easy to install as no wire is needed at all. There are no additional costs for the operation of solar-powered lampposts made of cast aluminum beyond the acquisition costs. They are usually compact and ideal for paths and driveways.
Your third option is a gas lamp post, which requires special timed controls, constant operation, and manual lighting. You need a gas pipe installed underground, which can be too much for some. However, cast aluminum gas lamp posts outdoors are still unmatched in terms of authenticity.
When it comes to size, you have many options so there is definitely a product that will suit every buyer’s needs and preferences. If you are lighting for safety reasons, it is best if you choose a higher post to light a large area. If you are unsure of the height of your cast aluminum lampposts, it depends on where the lighting fixtures will be placed. Short lampposts are best for small areas like home gardens. As already mentioned, higher posts are suitable for paths, driveways and parking lots.
For driveways, the pole should be no less than 8 feet high so that 2 feet of it can be pinned below the grass surface. The exposed post should be 6 feet high. For lamppost installation, it is best to hire an electrician to wire the lights.
