Better, Simpler Solar Lighting

Like all First Light’s solar lights, the BFL Series incorporates smart technology that automatically configures a light to a location without the need for site specific modelling. Lights therefore maximize performance and reliability in all conditions.

The self-contained solar engine integrates its solar power, battery and adaptive control capabilities into a compact form that requires no on-site assembly, specialized equipment or multiple crews. This greatly simplifies and speeds installation which significantly lowers costs. The high-efficiency LED fixture delivers high quality, full cut-off light where it’s needed and is Dark Sky approved.

Every detail of the BFL Series has been refined to simplify the customer experience from specification through to installation and ongoing performance. The First Light team provides responsive support through the whole process including expert advice, lighting layouts and cost analysis to ensure customers receive the best solution.
