Cast Aluminum Lamp Post

Cast aluminum lamp posts, whether they're for residential or commercial settings, add a clean, polished look to any landscape design. They're both functional and decorative, plus they’re made of rust-free, tough materials!

When buying this type of outdoor lighting, there are basic points that need consideration. The first one is the type of lighting that you want. Low voltage DC power is your first option which is energy efficient and makes use of a step-down transformer. It has low-power bulbs, which produce a reduced light output. It's a great option for light industrial and domestic purposes.

The second type is solar lighting which is easy to install from the fact that it requires no wire at all. Beyond the purchasing cost, you won’t be subjected to additional costs for the operation of solar-powered cast aluminum lamp posts. They are usually compact and they're ideal for pathways and driveways.

Your third option is a gas lamp post which requires special timed controls, constant operation, and manual lighting. You will need a gas utility plumbing installed underground, which can be too much for some. However, outdoor gas lamp posts made of cast aluminum are still unmatched when it comes to authenticity.

In terms of size, you will have lots of options so there is definitely a product that suits every buyer’s need and preference. If you will be lighting for security purposes, it is best if you choose a taller post in order to illuminate a large area. If you are unsure of the right height for your cast aluminum lamp posts, it will depend on where the lighting fixtures will be placed. Short lamp posts are best for small areas like home gardens. As mentioned earlier, taller posts are suitable for pathways, driveways, as well as parking areas.

For driveways, the pole should be no less than 8 ft tall so 2 ft of it can be secured under the grass surface. The exposed post should be 6 ft tall. For the installation of lamp posts, it is best if you hire an electrician for the hardwiring of the fixtures.
