For years, local councils have been maintaining street lamps and replacing bulbs by use of men and ladders. As the litigious society has developed, European legislation has gradually restricted the use of ladders to the point where many local councils have now banned their use. The only remaining option is the expensive solution: a scissor lift with an operator and a machine controller.

The York Hinge met this challenge with a simple and neat solution: It can be retro-fitted to existing lamp-posts in less than 30 minutes. It then permits one operator, with only one key, to hinge the lamp-post to a horizontal position, allowing the operator to clean the lamp and replace bulb in minutes. The payback period on this invention is expected to be less than one year – hence the high levels of interest shown in the product to-date.

There are, of course, competitors for this product. The main competition has a product which is fitted only to new lamp-posts – and it requires a cumbersome tool to be put in place for operation. There are also other less robust versions available.

The York Hinge has been tested to breaking point to simulate wind loading – it is always the lamp-post itself which fails first.
