Introducing the SolarEye®80

Here at the Lakeside Group – after many years of testing and development, we are delighted to introduce the SolarEye®80.

If you have an area that requires night time delineation but is difficult to maintain, off the national grid or you are simply looking for a quick & cost effective installation with minimal disruption – then look no further!

A very economic option to hard wiring – this product is ideal for those wanting optimum performance, minimal maintenance and great value for money.

For areas with conservation sensitivities – the BatHat is now available. With a twist on the original SolarEye®80, this option reduces the upwards light spillage by 98% making it a far friendlier option for Bats and their nocturnal buddies.
