Our newest street lighting publication has been released

Aug 4, 2021 | ILP Guidance Notes, Industry, Professional Lighting Guide, Technical

We are pleased to announce the release of our newest professional lighting guide – PLG26 Corrosion Protection of Minor structures.

Technical Report 26 (TR26) Painting of Lighting Columns was published in 2003 and additions have been made to it over the years such as root protection and galvanising guidance, but the core document has remained the same until now.

Fresh from the printer, we now have Professional Lighting Guide 26 (PLG26) Corrosion Protection of Minor Structures which supersedes TR26. Lighting columns, sign posts and the like are classified as minor structure in Design Manual for Roads and Bridges so it only seems fitting that the revision should reflect this change.

This document will be of use to all those considering improving or constructing minor structures such as lighting columns, sign posts, cctv columns and masts on roads, car parks, rail, docks, harbours and airports. In fact, it’s a document that can be used in a wide range of similar situations for public sector, retail, commercial and leisure industries.

PLG26 is a vital publication aimed at civil engineers, exterior lighting professionals, asset managers, contractors, professionals, designers and manufacturers. It provides a comprehensive and impartial guidance on a wide range of corrosion protective systems, their preparation, application and maintenance.

The new document is available as a read only document for ILP members on the members portal, or you can purchase a hard copy at £40 for ILP members and £70 for non-members.

Purchase the document here.

The ILP seeks to be as inclusive as possible, so if you have any concerns about applying for membership / attending our Exterior Lighting Diploma courses, LDC local events or our one-day courses for whatever reason please let us know and we will try to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that you can fully engage with the ILP.
