Decorative attachments to our lighting designs are becoming increasingly popular. These can range from simple banners to hanging baskets or complex Festive decorations.
If you want to have the option of making attachments a feature at some point in the future but not necessarily right away, it is important to take this possibility into account at the column design stage. Should this not happen, it is likely that attachments will not be possible for reasons of safety.
Factors to take into account
- Weight, size and outreach of bracket
- Weight and windage of lantern
- Any additional weight/windage to be carried ie:
- Standard signage
- Traffic signals
- Centenary lighting
- Festive decorations
We supply a full in-house column design service to make sure that all of these factors are considered.
