The company is now announcing the newest
addition to its Tangent family of products: a cast aluminum edge-lit LED
bollard. The bollard joins a line that already includes rail seating and table
ensembles in a wide range of configurations, and echoes the group’s clean
aesthetics and modern style.
Tangent Bollards offer the latest in
edge-lit LED technology without the bulk of more traditional designs. A narrow
bollard with wide appeal, Tangent’s slender profile and translucent lens give
it a sophisticated look that’s as beautiful by day as in the dark of night.
Bollard body and base are
corrosion-resistant cast aluminum with a durable powder-coat finish. Standard
powder-coat colors are Aluminum Texture, Argento Texture, and Slate Texture.
Optional colors from the Forms+Surfaces powder-coat color chart and custom RAL
colors are also available.
Rectangular openings in the bollard body
frame the edge-lit LED light panel. The light panel is visible from both sides
of the fixture.
Light Panel: LED Light Engine, Lens, and
The edge-lit LED light panel consists of the LED light
engine, lens, and diffuser. The LED light engine is powered by Osram chips. The
edge-lit lens is made of a light-conducting PMMA with embedded diffusing
particles that orient and emit light evenly across the face of the material.
Tempered glass diffusers are located on either side of the lens.
Diffusers have a very finely etched surface. An optional shield can be
specified on one side of the lens to create directional light distribution.
Standard and custom shields are available.
Bollards use an
electronic driver with overcurrent and overvoltage auto recovery, 90–305V, IP66
rated, -30 ̊ C starting temperature; Class A sound rating.
Tangent Bollards are designed for surface
mounting using four tamper-resistant bolts.
The Tangent Bollard is ETL listed for wet
Tangent Bollard metal components have a long life cycle and are 100 percent
recyclable. Standard powder-coat finishes are no VOC; nonstandard powdercoat
finishes are no or low VOC, depending on color.
Bollards are just one of Forms+Surfaces’ many outdoor lighting
