is a light lowering device that enables the property owner or manager
to replace a lamp or ballast without the use of a bucket truck making
maintenance easier. This is accomplished by lowering the fixture to the
ground rather than raising the maintenance electrician to the light head.
Because of safety issues and rising fuel, labor and insurance costs, Retropole
is a welcome addition to parking lots, parking garages, tennis courts,
parks and elaborately landscsaped areas.
Maintenance has always been an issue with pole lights. With Retropole,
maintenance has been made easier by allowing for dim lamps, cylcling ballasts
or burned out lamps to be replaced on demand without waiting for bucket
trucks to be scheduled. With this addition, property owners, property
managers or tenants now have more time to focus on their business than
scheduling in maintenance technicians. Maintenance now left in the hands
of property owners, managers and tenants will allow for a brightly lit
parking lot that will attract customers and a safer parking lot due to
the parking facilility being properly illuminated.
Lamps are available for pole lights in parking lots,parking garages or
tennis courts at most home improvement stores at greatly reduced prices
compared to what is charged by maintenance companies contracted to replace
lamps in pole lights.
Retropole is a nearly invisible addition to pole lights so aesthetics
are not compromised. Retropole can be color matched to existing or new
pole lights. Quality materials are used in the construction of Retropole
to ward off the effects of the elements. Once installed, Retropole is
a worry free application for light lowering of lights for years to come.
Maintenance cost is effectively reduced and control of lighting in parking
lots is given to the property owner, manager or tenant.
Light lowering devices or light lowering systems as some refer to, have
been employed by the state highway departments for roadway interchanges
for easy lamp replacement of pole lights. Retropole has taken this cue
and brought this idea to the parking lot, parking garage or tennis court
owner to allow for easy lamp replacement without the use of a bucket truck
and unlike the state highway department Retropole can be used on existing
pole lights and light heads.
