Light post base

If you can’t replace it, re-base it!

Light pole base cover

Generally speaking, the base of a traditional light pole has seams and the inside of the base is not powder coated or enamel finished. That’s where salt and moisture in the air gets in and corrosion begins. At TerraCast®, we know that you can’t always go on a replacing spree just because you found a superior product. Like cell phones, you have to wait until it makes sense to invest in the new model. That’s why we offer a line of resin pole bases.

Our resin lamppost base affixes easily to your existing light pole to protect the vulnerable spots at the bottom, where moisture seeps in, creating an entry point for corrosion. Our bases can easily affix to your current light pole to protect the metal pole and base. Though not designed to reverse the effects of corrosion, our bases are excellent at eliminating additional entry points.

Style

Our Madison style lamppost base can accommodate any standard 3 or 5-inch diameter poles. We have two types of modification base options, Clamshell and Drop-Over. The clamshell resin base piece hinges open to fit around the bottom of your existing pole. It secures shut with a threaded locking mechanism. The drop-over style base is one piece. You take the luminaire light fixture, sign or finial off the top of your existing pole, slide the drop-over base down, and replace the light, sign or topper.

If you’d like to re-think your luminaires, while you’re at it, we can help you with that!

Simple changes, like bases and luminaires, can upgrade the look of the pole and the entire area. A base change is a quick option for a facelift to provide a dramatic difference, while protecting your existing light poles and prolonging the process of renovation or replacement for as long as possible.

We also have access to a complete line of cast aluminum bases that can clamshell around your existing aluminum light pole. Although it goes against what we generally preach, the customer is always right, and we strive to provide superior service!

If you can’t replace, re-base!

Are your light poles looking old, ugly and worn down? Instead of replacing light poles, you can restore them to like new by adding a decorative base. As we like to say, if you can’t replace it,

Light posts are susceptible to all kinds of damage, and many common materials used to manufacture light posts are not good at standing up to these elements without incurring obvious signs of wear and tear.
