Our stand-alone solar streetlights have been specially designed to light roads, roundabouts, car parks or commercial areas.
Their reliability and adaptability make them the ideal product for all private and public actors (local authorities, companies, supermarkets, industrial concerns etc) who need to make energy savings and guarantee the safety of users.
Thanks to the unique Power 365 technology, developed by Fonroche Lighting, these "Made in France" solar streetlamps are the only ones to guarantee 365 nights of lighting per year. These smart and programmable lights are equipped with a NiMH storage system that can resist all temperatures and has a full 5-year guarantee.
The photovoltaic panel on top of the mast captures the sun's rays, converts them into energy and stores the energy in the Power365 battery system. When night falls, the twilight sensor sends the LED lantern a command to light up. The power and lighting ranges are programmed in advance during the project development phase, in order to meet the exact requirements.
The lamps can therefore be very bright in the early part of the night and provide less light in the middle of the night to limit light pollution.
Its 100% solar and autonomous operation means savings on several levels, making it less expensive from the very first moment of investment:
Easy installation: no civil works, trenches, network connection or electrical cabinets.
Quick installation: a simple concrete block is all that is needed, installation in less than 2 hours, less inconvenience for users, works from the first night,
No running costs or electricity bills.
No maintenance for 10 years.
Its elements can save up to 50% on a community's overall electricity bill, making it more competitive than conventional lighting.
Our solar street lamps are made in France and are composed of :
Each Smartlight solar lamp manufactured in our factory in Lot-et-Garonne undergoes strict quality control tests before being sent to France or abroad.
The components of our stand-alone solar lights are all designed with strength and performance in mind.
