Outdoor Lighting Poles May Need To Meet Code

There are many things that you want to think about when you are dealing with outdoor lighting, and one of the things that you are going to need to think about is what you are going to use for your outdoor lighting pole.

This might sound like something you don’t need to worry about, but what type of outdoor lighting pole and how it is set up is going to have a great impact on how your outdoor lighting works, and if it is safe or not.

How Strong Should Your Outdoor Lighting Pole Be?

Another important thing that you have to be thinking about when it comes to your outdoor lighting is how strong your outdoor lighting pole is going to be. Depending again on several factors, you need to make a decision about the material right away. If you are going to be having small outdoor lighting poles you aren’t going to need to think too much about the strength of the material, as long as they are going to be low to the ground. However, when you are thinking about tall outdoor lighting poles, you have to figure out what the strength should be so that you can get one made out of the right material.

How TAll

First of all, when you are looking at what outdoor lighting pole you want to use, you need to think about the height of the pole and what you want the height of the light to be. Remember that you can’t judge the height of the light based only on the height of the pole, because you are going to find that the pole needs to be dug into the ground in order to support the light and in order to stand up straight. That means that depending on how tall the pole is, you are going to have to think about your outdoor lighting pole being shorter than it really is.

There are quite a few things that you need to factor into deciding on an outdoor lighting pole. First of all, if your going to put the pole up by yourself the outdoor lighting pole has to be light enough for you to handle alone but tall enough to spread the light. So this is the first thing that you have to keep in mind. Second, it has to be strong enough to support the light without any chance of the light falling. Third, it has to be able to withstand the wind that it is going to encounter, based upon how high it is going to be.

Once you have made these decisions, you can begin to work on your outdoor lighting pole to make it the best that it can be.
