WLB Series

Architectural Solar Illuminated Way-finding Bollard

Why Choose the WLB

Description

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.
