The Solareye®80 is a solar powered delineator with an omni-directional LED producing 360° visibility. Initially designed for cycle track and pathway installations as an economical alternative to hard wiring, there are also numerous other applications where the product can be used such as driveways, marinas and campsites.
We use a unique milling cutter to bore the hole where the blade creates debris rather than dust, therefore making the process less harmful to the environment. The product is then fixed in to place using a two component all weather epoxy adhesive.
Following preparation of the site by clearing the area and marking the required placement of the units, each cut into a typical asphalt takes less than 2 minutes. We estimate that 200+ pieces can be installed in one day.
Firstly you need to consider the location, if there are large areas of shade or if the path is prone to overgrown borders/debris then this may have an impact on the performance of the product.
There are many ways in which you can position the units for installation – here are our suggestions:
Yes! We have discovered through testing that even in several inches of water the unit will still charge (although it may take longer than if left out in direct sunlight). The unit is also completely sealed/waterproof and rated as IP68 – the highest IP rating available for dust and water immersion.
Yes, as long as they receive some direct sunlight they work just as well vertically. The dimpled surface helps to capture more light.
Artificial lighting is a major concern for Bats and their nocturnal friends. We have given our original product a little hat to reduce the upward slight spillage by 98% making it a far friendlier option for sensitive conservation areas. Please see our dedicated Bat Hat page for further information.
Firstly, the Solareye®80 has not been designed for highways – although it is a fully sealed unit moulded with the toughest polycarbonate we have not designed this for road use. However, we have recently had an independent compression test carried out and the results were quite amazing.
Graffiti can be easily removed from the Solareye®80 using a standard graffiti remover.
Yes, the Solareye®80 is CE certified and also carries a rating of IP68.
