Smart Tips To Maintain The Pole Lights LED

by Fidel Martin LED Light Manufacturer
If you know how important are the pole lights LED from the perspective of a smart street light, you probably also know how important are they from inspection and maintenance point of view. If pole lights LED safeguards your customers and your employees by being a robust luminary, these pole lights also need to be safeguarded from harsh weather conditions and corrosion in any form. And, as it is said -- prevention is better than treatment, preventive maintenance is always the best way to take care of pole lights LED than after-damage repair and which indirectly plays a big role in building up or maintaining the reputation of your organization.

The key features of the pole lights LED maintenance program must include the inspection and replacement of any of their components or the entire pole lights LED fixture. The inspection could be done either quarterly or once every six months.  

The following should be your key targets for inspection :

Pole  Shaft  

Occasionally, there may be cracks in the poles which may usually be around the hand hole or at the corners. These cracks may develop out of the external stress or strain in the same area for any numbers of times and which ultimately may cause the pole lights LED to fail.

The question then arises is how to detect if the crack has begun to emerge. Well, the visual inspection of pole shafts is enough to detect any rust or corrosion on either side of the crack line.

If after detection, you see cracks, you must immediately replace all the poles and install dampers in the holes. 

The anchor bolts

The anchor bolts and the nuts may get loose due to the stress of the wind or excessive temperature. These must be checked and re-tightened. You must also check for the lock washers if they are installed.      
 
Nut, handhole and base Covers
 
The covers on either of these -- the nuts, the handholes, the base, and the pole caps must be properly investigated and if any of the covers are missing, they must be replaced quickly else there may be chances of electrical shocks.      

The arms, the brackets, the welds, and the luminaries
 
Check all of these to ensure there is no metal degradation.    
Vibration or corrosion 
 
Inspect if there is any corrosion in the outer coating of the pole or loosening of any attachment. Check if there is any movement in the pole or loosening of the luminaire. 
Check for any noise or humming in the pole.     

Maintenance by cleanliness
 
The base from below should be kept completely clean. If any dirt or dust if found, it must be removed away.   
 
Conclusion: While all of the above is taken care of, a structural visual inspection is necessary after a severe storm, rainfall and snow.
