Refurbished Low Voltage LED Lamp Post
Here at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Colorado, we are frequently asked if we can do anything to refurbish and upgrade a homeowner’s existing lamp posts – whether they were originally installed as line voltage or low voltage. Fortunately, the answer is yes as you can see in the newly refurbished and re-installed low voltage LED lamp post shown in the picture to the right.
For this project we removed the 50W incandescent bulbs and bulb sockets and replaced them with fully-integrated 4x4W LED towers that provide 360 degrees of light output. During this process, we cleaned and repainted all of the metal components of the lamp post, cleaned and re-frosted the glass lens, and installed the LED tower. This was one of two lamp posts that we refurbished and the results speak for themselves.
For situations in which the glass lenses are broken, we can usually find replacement lenses from the original lighting manufacturer or from one of our local glass suppliers. And if you would prefer to start over with a new lantern top, we can help you select a new design from a range of available products.
In the photos below, you can see the component parts including the LED tower prior to reassembling the lantern top and reinstalling it on the post at the homeowner’s property.

In this ever-increasing throw away society, we are happy that we can offer homeowners a more sustainable solution for their old lamp post lighting.

In my last blog posting, I mentioned that I had been interviewed for an upcoming article in The Denver Post. The article written by Lisa Greim was published on Saturday, February 21st in The Denver Post Home and Garden Section. In the newspaper print version the article was titled The Patio You Dream of – and the online version had the title – Outdoor Rooms: 5 Great Products to Make Them Irresistible.
Read the online version by clicking on the title below –
Outdoor Rooms: 5 Great Products to Make Them Irresistible.
Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Colorado was one of five local companies interviewed for the article that included product/design ideas for outdoor patios/living spaces. The product categories were adjustable sun shades, stone and mortar work including fire pits, garden containers, and of course outdoor lighting.

OLP of Colorado Exhibit at the 2015 Colorado Garden & Home Show
In case you were not able to attend the 2015 Colorado Garden and Home Show, I have attached some photos and a video tour of our exhibit to show you the new LED lighting products that we are now offering.
In addition to B&B Manufacturing based in Nashville (an OLP official supplier since 2000), our national company has recently named Attraction Lights as another official supplier.
New LED Lighting Products Introduced at 2015 Colorado Garden & Home Show
In the next photo, you can see three of these very unique products from Attraction Lights including the Obelisk (over 6 feet tall), the Grande Path and the Grande Beacon path light. In addition, we also had a new BB-02 LED path light (B&B/OLP) on display. This is a real handy fixture for illuminating difficult-to-light areas including steps or pathways.
If you have the time, take a look at our video below to get a better view of our new product offerings.
While staffing the show, I was also interviewed for an article that appeared in The Denver Post, and I will post a link to that story in my next blog.

Over the last 15 years, we’ve been asked repeatedly about the availability of color lens covers for landscape lighting fixtures in general, and for the well lights that Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Colorado sells and installs in particular. As you can see in the graphic to the right, we do have color acrylic lens covers for the oval (above ground) well lights and the circular in-ground (flush mounted) well lights. These lenses are designed and manufactured to specifically fit the dimensions of the OLP well lights. The lenses are available in the following colors – amber, blue, green, light blue, purple, red, smoke and yellow.
What options do you have if your spot lights are smaller diameter (say the diameter of MR16 bulbs) or if your well lights have a different configuration than the OLP well lights?
There are two viable options for the owners of non-OLP systems. The first option is to simply lay or tape the OLP color lenses over the aperture of the existing non-OLP fixtures. The important thing to remember is that the lens should never come in contact with the bulb!
The second option is to find your nearest photographic or theatrical supply store, and purchase some rolls or precut squares of color gels that come in any color imaginable. You would then need to secure these gels to the landscape lighting fixtures using heavy-duty rubber bands or all-weather tape. The gels are not as durable as the acrylic lenses so you may need to purchase a new set of gels at the beginning of each holiday season.
Happy lighting and Happy Holidays from Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Colorado!
