Outdoor Lamp Posts/Pier Mounts
usually go hand in hand. A lamp post, which is usually about 19 inches in heigh, is attached to the pier mount to enable it to stand on its own. Some of the first lamp posts, which are a raised source of light, were erected to provide light for walkways and required a lamplighter. A lamplighter was hired to light each gas lamp as day turned into night. These were followed by gas lights that were automatically ignited when the gas supply was activated, followed by the electric street lighting that we're familiar with today.
Outdoor Lamp posts generally support outdoor post lanterns
to provide general illumination over a specific area. Lamp posts and pier mounts are available in a variety of styles and in a wide range of finishes. Lamp posts hold one to five lanterns depending on the style. Pier mounts vary in design, from sleek and simple to having more elaborately scrolled accents. Finishes for lamp posts and pier mounts include matte black, weathered brick, white, Tuscan beige and polished brass.
Effortlessly line most any outdoor space, such as a garden, driveway or walkway, with lamp posts attached to pier mounts. Outdoor lanterns that hang from or that are attached to a lamp post diffuses light evenly and illuminates most any outdoor environment with a warm and welcoming glow of light.
