Solar highmasts lighting to combat rampant cable theft, destruction of infrastructure and to provide lighting for the community when there is loadshedding

We supplied the solar lighting highmast solution for Stanford Road in Gqeberha, Eastern Cape. This installation is the result of the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality’s initiative to keep cables out of the reach of thieves through its highmast solar lighting pilot programme.

The SOLARFLOOD was chosen for this pilot project. 20m high solar highmasts were chosen to combat rampant cable theft and destruction of infrastructure and, furthermore, to be able to provide lighting for the community when there is loadshedding, thus increasing safety and well-being for the community. This is the first solar highmast installation in the Eastern Cape, and a successful pilot project for the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality.

LED Solar Lighting Highmast Solution

The SOLARFLOOD is the solar lighting highmast solution for all area applications. This locally designed and manufactured solar lighting highmast solution for outdoor open area and rural applications provides a high performing, robust option for off-grid solar lighting requirements. It comes with a warranty of up to 5 years (T’s and C’s apply).

This unique solution ensures that the corrosion-proof glass-reinforced polymer (GRP) box, which houses the energy source (Lithium) and other components, is permanently positioned in the shade, due to the Solar panel array being North facing. This ensures that high temperatures, which are the cause of premature battery ageing, are averted.

We develop and manufacture sustainable and energy-efficient LED lighting products in South Africa, designed and suitable for local conditions.
