New bollard offers customized illuminations and heights to provide safety and security within an attractive post 
Palmdale, Calif. (October 11, 2022) – U. S. Architectural, a leading American manufacturer of contemporary area and street lighting, introduces its Beyond Bollard™ with its distinctively modern and minimalist design that creates a look of urban sophistication.  Its robust performance makes it ideal for use in parks, city squares, shopping malls and on exterior commercial buildings.

The Beyond Bollard features a powerful outdoor LED system designed for area and pathway lighting, providing safety and security. With its advanced optics and PLED™ options, it provides the highest level of performance not only in delivered footcandles, but also in available distributions. The PLED system can deliver more than 5000 lumens.  Each of the PLED optical modules produces a crisp, uniform light that eliminates shadows and scalloping in pathway applications.

U.S. Architectural Lighting offers the Beyond Bollard with lens options to allow for many different illumination appearances–from diffuse and low glare to high performance wide coverage. All the optional lenses are high impact, UV stable acrylic. The CA clear flat acrylic lens is designed for impact resistance and high lumen output. The AL Ambiance™ low luminance lens offers high glare reduction. The CPA Clear Prismatic dropdown conical lens is ideal for eye-catching, jewel-like aesthetics with slight glare reduction.  And, the CWA White Prismatic dropdown lens provides high glare reduction and aesthetics.

In contrast to the standard round and square extruded type bollards, the Beyond Bollard has a customizable extruded post that is architecturally relevant with a high level of aesthetic appeal to harmonize with the existing outdoor environment. While a typical bollard is 42″ height, the Beyond Bollard offers the flexibility of the standard 42” bollard to an 80” column with the option of any height from 2’ to 8’.

The innovative LED solution is available with a variety of high-power white LEDs driven between 350mA and 875mA. The LEDs are available in standard neutral white (4000K), cool white (5000K) and warm white (2700K and 3000K).  All Standard LEDs have a minimum of 70 CRI.  The luminaire’s true amber LEDs (TRA-True Amber) emit light in the amber spectral bandwidth centered on 585-590nm, resulting in negligible blue light and suitability for wildlife.

IP66 rated for wet applications, the Beyond Bollard can operate reliably in temperatures down to -40°F/-40°C.   It features a super TGIC polyester powder coating that incorporates a four-step iron phosphate process to pretreat the metal surface for maximum adhesion. The top coat is then baked at 400°F for maximum hardness and exterior durability.

The Beyond Bollard accepts input of 120-277V, 50/60Hz or 347V-480V, 50/60Hz. It has a rated performance life of 60,000 hours and comes with a limited 5-year warranty. For more information about the Beyond Bollard, visit https://usaltg.com/Beyond.html or call (800) 877-6537.
