A Comprehensive Guide Wind Resistance for LED Solar Street Lights

Do solar street lights bend when blown? These 4 points design of wind resistance for led solar street lights are good for convenience and safety.

More and more solar street lights are being installed in rural areas. When installing solar street lights, in addition to ensuring the lighting effect and facilitating travel, safety is also a key point that cannot be ignored. Although there is not as much traffic flow as in the city, if problems arise , it will still cause a lot of trouble to the passing crowds and vehicles.

Wind Resistance For Led Solar Street Lights

When it comes to the safety of solar street lights, the first thing to consider is its wind-resistant design. The design of the foundation, light poles, lamp arm design and other components must be carefully processed to ensure that the street lights will not fall over when blown by the wind. Let’s take a look at it in detail below.

Foundation Treatment

The size of the foundation is determined based on parameters such as the height of the light pole. For example, the length of the foundation pit dug for an 8m light pole is usually 1.1m, and the depth must be at least 1.2m, and the lower part of the foundation is larger than the upper part, which is more reliable. It is beneficial to the stability of the foundation and enhances the wind resistance of solar street lights.

In addition, the local environment where the street lights are installed must also be considered. If the wind is strong or the geology is relatively soft, the foundation pit should be dug deeper and the base should be appropriately weighted to improve stability.

Quick-drying concrete cannot be used for embedded concrete. The grade should not be lower than C20 according to the soil condition. The viscosity should be moderate, neither too thin nor too thick. This should strengthen the connection between the street lamp and the ground and prevent the strong wind from pulling out the street lamp. rise or blow down.

Light pole requirements

In order to ensure sufficient lighting effects, we usually make a fuss about the height of the light pole, but when it comes to safety, we must fully consider other factors, such as material, wall thickness, caliber, etc.

As shown in the picture above, this is the ratio of some commonly used light pole heights and other parameters. The caliber, thickness, flange diagonal, etc. must meet its basic parameters. If it is in some windy, rainy, and frequent areas with severe weather, On this basis, the parameters should be higher, and reinforcement ribs should be welded between the flange and the light pole to ensure the strength of the bottom of the light pole.

In addition to these, the material of the light pole should not be ignored. Solar street lights are exposed to wind, rain and sun all year round. The corrosion resistance of the light pole must be good. It is best to use hot-dip galvanized material, or light poles made of stainless steel or aluminum alloy. They are resistant to corrosion. The corrosion resistance is excellent, reducing the possibility of the light pole being blown off due to corrosion.

Lamp arm design

Improper design of the lamp arm will also affect the windproof performance of the solar street light. First of all, it should be noted that the length of the lamp arm should not exceed 1/4 of the installation height. This will not only reduce the illumination on the side where the lamp is installed, but also require higher load-bearing requirements. , which brings greater pressure to the light pole, and if there is a problem with the force, it will be easily blown over.

Other component designs

In addition to what is mentioned above, the design of other components must also be meticulous, such as the light source casing. The quality and workmanship of their materials must be ensured, otherwise it will be very dangerous if the wind blows the lamp casing off. Solar panels, etc. must be welded or The connection is firm and meets the design requirements, and the brackets must also be reinforced to ensure they can withstand stress.
