Installing Solar Light Bollards with a Drop-in Insert
Step-by-step instructions to install Reliance Foundry R-9811 solar light bollards
Reliance Foundry R-9811 solar light bollards can be installed in existing concrete with a drop-in concrete insert.
Drop-in inserts should only be installed in cured concrete that is more than 6” thick. Always maintain a minimum 9” radius of solid concrete around each drop-in insert.
Drop-in insert installation is recommended for decorative applications to create architectural perimeters and aesthetically enhance environments. This installation technique offers limited impact resistance.
