Aluminum supports - a reasonable combination of functionality, lightness and economy
Exterior lighting, organized with aluminum supports - a good replacement for heavy reinforced concrete structures. In addition, state standards regulate only the permissible indicators of illumination, and not the materials from which the lampposts are made. The documents also indicate the distance between the lighting fixtures. They depend on the mounting height of the lights and their power. With the help of aluminum supports, you can illuminate certain areas at the appropriate level. To buy lampposts of an optimum design, it is necessary to consider their purpose, a way of installation, the connection schemes of wires. This approach will save on the price of expensive and overly massive structures.
The design and installation features of aluminum lampposts
Aluminum lighting supports have a height of 3 to 12 meters. The highest structures are used in the installation of main lighting. When organizing the park and adjacent space it is enough to use 3-meter poles. The weight of aluminum supports is from 30 to 200 kg, depending on their design and metal wall thickness (from 3 to 5 mm). Therefore, they must be mounted on the foundation, installed in the ground with a recess. Fastening of their basis is carried out under flange connection.
Grounding of aluminum supports is carried out during electrical work through a special hole located in the lower part. Lighting is connected in several ways: with ground and underground cable supply. In the first case the wire with a section of a metal core of 4 mm will approach, in the second case - with a section of 3 mm. The supports themselves are made by rolling pipes. Thanks to this technology the integral design with the set taper is created.
Obvious advantages of aluminum lampposts
Aluminum supports have several advantages:
- Durability. They will not need repairs or maintenance for 30 years.
- Resistance to temperature changes. Aluminum is not prone to corrosion regardless of temperature - in summer heat and in winter frosts.
- High degree of protection against dust and moisture. The case of aluminum supports is hermetically connected to an arm of the lamp. That is, the internal components are not exposed to precipitation and wind.
Aluminum poles have another important advantage - the possibility of recycling. And this ensures the environmental safety. To enhance the anti-corrosion properties of the surface of aluminum supports is anodized. It also improves their decorative characteristics, because the color of the metal barely changes. And in some cases, even creates a unique embossed pattern in the form of leaves and flowers.
