WLB Solar Bollard Light Series

Architectural Solar Illuminated Way-finding Bollard

Why Choose the WLB


The self-contained, simple, louvered design of the WLB series combined with high quality construction and unequaled solar powered performance make this bollard an excellent choice when vertical illumination is required. The WLB series produces omni-directional, low glare light making it perfect for way-finding and space delineation applications.

Like all of First Light’s solar lights, the WLB incorporates our Solar Lighting Controller (SLC) which allows each light to be “self-learning and predictively adapt to their surroundings to provide a level of lighting performance and reliability unavailable in other solar lighting products.

The WLB provides excellent vertical luminescence with low glare.

Lighting Profiles


The profile that you choose will control the light performance of your light. The default for the WLB is profile 04.


On at dusk > Off at dawn

04 (default)

On at dusk > Dim to 30% after 5 hours > Brighten to 100% 1 hour before dawn > Off at dawn


On at dusk > Dim to 30% after 3 hours > Brighten to 100% 1 hour before dawn > Off at dawn


On at dusk > Off or dim at time 0000 > Off at dawn (if applicable)

  • T = Real-Time Based Lighting Profile
  • X = D (dim) or O (off)
  • 0000 = Choose any time between 1800 and 0600. Examples 2230 = 10:30 pm, 0000 = midnight, 0100 = 1:00 am
