Solar Sign Lighting Solutions for Outdoor Navigation
There’s no doubt that solar lighting is a great solution for outdoor signage. It provides a number of important benefits and is especially useful in environments without easy accessibility to a typical power source.
Not only are solar signs environmentally-friendly, it’s a cost-effective long-term lighting solution. While the initial spend for solar lighting systems may be higher than traditional power sources, there is a significant cost savings on electricity and maintenance over time. In most cases Return on Investment is realized sooner than one might expect!
Illuminated signage not only provides visibility for navigation and information finding but also increases security in outdoor spaces. At ID Signsystems we utilize solar panels and a collection of solar powered products for lighting various types of signage in a variety of applications:
Depending on the size, type and placement of your wayfinding signage, illuminating can be done in a variety of ways. Custom solar panels designed at appropriate scale for the sign is an effective way to provide always-on lighting for signs that need constant visibility and illumination.
Campuses – whether collegiate, healthcare or corporate – are good examples of places where directional signage is necessary. These signs are often placed in areas that are typically quite dark and need a steady source of illumination.
Entrance signage such as marquees and monuments are fixtures that should remain lit 24 hours a day. To best meet design objectives and requirements, we can integrate solar power in an attractive way as part of the sign structure, or install optimally-placed stand-alone solar panel structures to provide illumination for the sign
IDS is an authorized dealer of Solarpost and Solareye.
Solarpost is an attractive solar-powered bollard that remains illuminated at a low level during dark hours and brightens to full illumination when approached by a car, pedestrian or a bicyclist, making them ideal solutions for guiding people through campus settings, parks, walking trails and are even suitable as landscape features.
Solareye is a solar-powered flush delineator installed in the ground to provide low-profile safe lighting for walkways, staircases, trails and any outdoor space.
By using Solarpost we are able to strategically illuminate display cases that house information.
Solarpost is an ideal solution in both urban areas with high visibility and foot traffic as well as dark campus settings. The illumination aides visitors who are locating informational signage, such as trains and bus stations, and increases their security as they navigate the campus. Additionally, we utilize traditional solar panels to provide lighting for informational signage.
There is no application of solar-powered lighting that IDS hasn’t utilized successfully, including commercial applications such as billboard lighting, large commercial signage, architectural signs and more. Our team of lighting experts focuses on providing value-engineered lighting solutions that maximize the value that solar provides, helping our customers realize ROI on their commercial sign projects.
Implementing solar power with your sign system is an innovative, environmentally-focused way to improve and enhance outdoor navigation and added security. If you’re considering lighting options for your new (or existing) signage contact us to explore which solar options are best for your project.
