The External Flagpole Beacon, Dark Sky Approved, is the most environmentally correct way for flag illumination on flagpoles during night hours. For the first time, flags can be properly lit during nighttime hours without lighting adjoining properties and the night sky! As light pollution and light trespass become increasingly important issues for city and county governments across the country, the Flagpole Beacon, Dark Sky Approved, already complies with these new regulations. Its patented design (U.S. Patent 7,275,495) lights the flag only and follows the flag as the wind blows it around the flagpole.
The Flagpole Beacon, Dark Sky Approved, is certified as an IDA Approved Dark-Sky Friendly Fixture. This Flagpole Beacon, Dark Sky Approved, features a Beacon Visor over the LED lights to minimize glare and reduce light trespass, in accordance with International Dark Sky Association guidelines.
