The Solar Eye is a solar LED cats’ eyes alternative. They can be used to light pathways, schools, cycle paths or for more general route marking and way-finding. The Solar Eye comes with 4 options. The Steady White, The Warm White, The Bat Hat Steady White, and The Bat Hat Warm White. The steady white is a 360 degree high visibility LED and the bat hat reduces the upward spillage of light by 98% making it a friendlier option for conservation areas.

Developed in the UK, in conjunction with end users, the solareye is a solar powered, low profile, in- set, 360 degree high visibility delineator, providing a strong LED signal during the hours of darkness -throughout the year.
Operational performance has been based upon actual western European weather/ sunlight — with the objective of CO2 neutrality.
The solareye is a solar powered delineator with an omni- directional LED producing 360° visibility. Initially designed for cycle track and pathway installations as an economical alternative to hard wiring, there are also numerous other applications where the product can be used such as driveways, marinas and campsites.
Can solar eye be used on roads/highways? – no – the solar eyes has been designed solely for pathways and cycle lanes, however the solar eyes can take pressure up to 50 tons.
how do you fix the solar eye? – with an 80mm cutter 30mm deep using a moisture tolerant epoxy fixing adhesive
Is the solar eye suitable for conservation areas? yes – we offer the she solar ‘bat hat’ which reduces upward light spillage by over 95%.
Does the product work all the year round in the UK? Not always – which is why we strongly recommend the product is located preferably in a south or westerly position to maximise energy if you asked for 100% functionality in Spain the answer would be yes! – its also why we put timings on many of our products for the UK market.
As well as being detrimental to Bats, artificial light also disturbs invertebrate feeding, breeding & movement which may reduce and fragment populations due to the disruptive natural patterns of light and dark caused by artificial lighting.

The SolarEye was tested embedded in a decking plank for compression testing The test proved that the eye can withstand pressure of up to 575kn ( over 50 tons) , in order to determine its compressive strength. For the purpose of this compression test, the defined point of failure for the SolarEye product as the point at which the light would no longer function.
