Hardware Is Important With Commercial Pole Lighting
Many benefits drop ship straight to client locations when they take the time to invest a little extra in commercial light pole hardware and accessories. A pole, after all, is a simple thing that in and of itself offers function and a measure of stability and support for a lighting fixture.
Without the proper hardware accessories, a pole appears bare, and not the most aesthetic piece on the block.

Hardware and accessories from a quality manufacture will allow for greater ease in installation and more reliable performance from lights mounted on poles of any kind. A selective and wise investment in this equipment often makes the difference between adequate outdoor lighting and superior outdoor lighting design.
Mounts and bases are among the more important hardware elements of any commercial light pole. While the eye itself is drawn to the light at the top, the mind must realize that the only reason the eye gravitates upward is because the base is holding it up straight.
The base has to be firmly bracketed to the concrete in such a way as to maintain a 90, a angle to the surface of the earth. Unfortunately, this often leaves the base of a commercial light pole unattractively exposed. With the addition of a simple accessory found in our online inventory – a square base cover – the pole appears more seamlessly attached to the earth and also more aesthetically appealing as a result.
Fixture mounts make an even more important impact on aesthetics for a number of reasons. First, they hold the light fixture in position and must maintain that position firmly in spite of problematics such as wind velocity, accidental impacts, and the force of gravity.
Secondly, the mount itself must be attractive enough to blend into the piece but – low profile – nonetheless in that it does not dominate the landscape.
