Major Structural Components
The Brilliant SunTM (Patent No. 610-536) is a top-of-pole mount for the photovoltaic array and is designed for our GridFree and GridSmart product lines. It is a structurally efficient and architecturally pleasing design patented by Solar Street Lights USA. Brilliant Sun can support up to 740 Watts of PV modules and withstand high wind loads. Brilliant Sun is made from heavy gauge galvanized steel and uses stainless steel hardware for corrosion resistance. It is designed to tilt from 0 to 180 degrees and rotates 360 degrees for easy and proper array orientation. It can be colorized in any PMS color for additional protection or visual enhancement. Brilliant Sun only weighs 71 pounds making it easy and fast for installers to mount on a standard tenon.
Our light pole is a heavy duty galvanized steel pole designed to complement the Brilliant Sun mount. The standard poles are square 5" x 5" and 6" x 6" and range between 20 to 30 feet in length. Wall thicknesses are 5/16" and 3/8" however heavier gauges can be ordered on a custom basis. The pole can also be custom ordered with a round cross section. A 4" OD x 6" steel tenon is welded to the top side of the pole and a 1" thick steel base plate with holes is welded to the bottom of the pole. All welding and holes for mounting the fixture and battery enclosure are pre-drilled, then the entire pole is galvanized. The pole comes complete with anchor bolts and pull string to simplify wiring. The pole can be optionally coated in any PMS color for added protection or for visual enhancement.
