Gussy-up Them Posts


Primelite has been offering lanterns, along with coordinating posts and poles, since its early days. With a wide range of post options available, including smooth, fluted, circular, and square designs, our posts provide a sturdy foundation for your post lights. 


However, after installation, some may find their lighting setup to be lacking in character. The sight of countless lanterns mounted atop thin posts lining the streets and parks may seem a bit bland and monotonous, as many towns have similar-looking lanterns atop thin posts in their streets and parks.


Fortunately, Primelite has the answer to add a touch of elegance and charm to these outdoor spaces, while also enhancing the overall aesthetic of your towns lighting. Introducing our Decorative Post Base Cover #6501, specifically designed for your exterior lighting posts and poles.






Our Decorative Bases can be compared to accessories that complete a fabulous outfit. While your lighting installation may be efficient, economical, and functional, it might look a bit too sterile and stale.


That’s where our Decorative Post Bases come in. These bases are an excellent and easy way to update and enhance those town squares, street lights and park walkways. Made of weather-resistant polyethylene, our bases are designed to fit snugly and safely around your existing posts. Simply slide the base over your post and you’re done. It’s as easy as that!
