Solar Powered Security Light

solar light

Is the entrance or area around your home dark or badly lit? Do you struggle to find your keys in the evening? Perhaps you would feel safer when you come home late at night or when you go to the garage or take the rubbish out if you had a security light to lead the way? Or maybe you have an external garage that isn’t wired up to electricity but you have always wanted an external light?

Whether it’s a welcoming light for guests, a security light for you or a practical light to lead the way and help you find your keys, our Solar Sensor Light delivers a fantastic solution. The Solar Sensor Light turns on automatically when motion is detected and off after 1 minute. And the best bit? Its battery is powered solely by sunlight, so no wires are required, making it ideal for emergency use as you can rely on this practical chap all year round.

Simple to Install

Securely bolt your solar-powered motion Sensor Light above your garage, porch or next to the front door with ease. Simply screw the bracket to the wall, slide the light onto the bracket and then lock in place with the supplied key.

This fantastic design means you can remove your solar light for cleaning, or if your chosen location is in the shade, you can unlock the light and place in direct sunlight once a week to recharge and then lock back in place.

The infrared sensor has a 100 degree detection angle, an 8 metre lighting distance and a 60 second illumination period. And when fully charged emits a super bright LED light, which has almost the same power as that of a 60W standard light bulb! Order yours today!

The Solar Light’s Best Bits

  • Uses a solar battery so no wires are required, it’s good for the environment and will work all year round
  • Bright white LED light
  • 8 metre lighting distance

Steward Advanced Materials Thiol-SAMMS: The Toxin Terminator

Thiolsamms

This simple-looking white powder can get mercury-contaminated water 100 times as clean as any other method, for about half the cost. Each grain is actually a carefully engineered molecular sponge designed to absorb more than half its weight in mercury.

The product of more than 15 years of research, Thiol-SAMMS is made of silica molecules assembled into a spongelike pattern of holes, packing the surface area of a football field into just one teaspoon. Sulfur atoms, which can bind poisonous mercury, coat each of the minuscule holes. When the powder meets a tainted liquid, mercury seeps inside and bonds with the sulfur to instantly form a stable powder safe for landfills—the first time anyone’s been able to send mercury waste to the dump without an expensive separate step to neutralize the toxin.

SAMMS has successfully cleaned wastewater in a variety of settings, including a coal plant, an offshore oil rig and a chemical manufacturer. Four treatment tanks, each with a 10-pound load of the product, can treat about a million gallons of water. Soon SAMMS cartridges might help clean up lakes, streams and sewers. Thiol-SAMMS can also recover precious metals such as copper and gold, and researchers are now switching out the sulfur for other atoms so that it could mop up radioactive waste.

Mobile MaxPure with Fresh Water Purification System

max pure silo

This Mobile MaxPure® (MMP) is a solar-powered generator with a built-in system for the purification of polluted freshwater sources. This system can pump and purify an average of 30,000 gallons each day at a cost of less than one penny per gallon! This calculation includes capital costs and all consumables over the course of the first year. After year 1 the cost reduces to fractions of a penny per gallon because the capital outlay has been paid off.

The unit also provides power to run lights, tools, equipment and sensitive computers and other electronic equipment. Inverter systems for use with US or European specifications are available. You can also purchase the optional satellite communication system and/or the specially designed trailer to easily pull the unit to your site.

The MMP fits easily into standard international shipping containers; 4 fit into a standard 40-foot container. There are lift points built on to the sturdy frame to airlift the unit by helicopter. It can also be transported by truck or boat.

The units have provided water and power under severe conditions. Please see our Project Briefs for more information. The MMP is powder coated to reduce rust and all components are marine grade and sealed against the elements. Please see below for more specifications.

PowerPly Self Adhesive Solar Panels – peel off the backing and stick to your roof

solarroof  PowerPly Self Adhesive Solar Panels – peel off the backing and stick to your roof

PowerPly

Lumeta™ PowerPly™. Seamless integration, lower installation cost and dramatic time savings.

Lumeta™ utilizes monocrystalline cells to maximize energy output per roof area, and a standard EVA based cell encapsulation process. The fiberglass-reinforced plastic (FRP) substrate in the PowerPly™ design provides needed rigidity to the module, replacing the TPT™ (Tedlar®/ Polyester /Tedlar®) flexible substrate used in traditional modules. This high efficiency technology is enhanced by Lumeta’s adhesive backing material, which eliminates the need for rack mounting systems, yielding seamless integration with the roof. The adherence properties of this adhesive material exceed all wind uplift requirements for roof mounted modules, and its chemical composition is compatible with most roofing surfaces. This direct roof application reduces installation time by about 50% and Balance of System (BOS) costs by up to 70%.

PowerPly’s front sheet of DuPont™ fluoropolymer and FRP substrate yield a module that is both light weight and durable. At only 1.8 lbs/sq ft (8.8 kgs/sq meter), Lumeta™ PowerPly™ is 50% lighter than traditional rack mounted and ballasted systems. The low, 0.4 in (1 cm) height module also minimizes potential water ponding issues.
