Refurbish and Upgrade Your Old Lamp Posts to the 21st Century!

Refurbished Low Voltage LED Lamp Post

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 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.

Where to Buy Color Lens Covers for Your Landscape Lighting Fixtures

Where to buy color lens coversOver 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!
