 Sealite’s solar bridge lights chosen as channel lights on a Florida bridge

Sealite’s LED Bridge Lights have been installed on a new Florida bridge. Specifically designed to clearly mark structures such as bridges that extend over navigable waterways, the solar-powered Bridge Light Kit was the perfect choice for the channel lights used on the bridge.

The bridge does not have power running to it so Sealite’s solar-powered light fixtures were the ideal solution for this installation. Flexibility in the design allowed for the lights to be modified by the customer, who extended the cable from the light heads to the solar panels so they could be mounted on the sunny side of the bridge – maximizing solar energy collection.

The bridge has been built over one of the largest lakes in Central Florida and replaces an older bridge originally constructed in 1951.

The new bridge is 3740 feet in length, replacing an old 500-foot long bridge and causeway. The new design spans the entire lowland river basin eliminating the need for the causeway which closed a channel and eliminated river flow through the lake. The removal of this causeway allows the re-establishment of old river channels into the lake and improves water quality and flow.

Sealite is proud to be chosen as the supplier of navigation lighting for this new structure.


  • Safe and clear marking of the bridge
  • In-house manufacturing allows Sealite to customise products to suit the client’s individual needs
  • Due to the use of solar power, the Bridge Light was able to be installed on the bridge which does not have access to reticulated power
  • Using clean, pollution-free energy from the sun to power the lights offers an eco-friendly, cost-effective lighting solution

What Our Client's Say

On behalf of Karachi Port I am pleased to acknowledge your good service and provision of the new SL-75 solar marine lanterns installed by your firm in the harbour channel at Karachi Port. The new lanterns are very feasible and useful and equipped with the latest navigational technology.

[Re: Sealite SL-LED Lightsource at LaCorbiere Lighthouse], We were impressed with Sealite’s solution which provided a modern, reliable and efficient light source whilst remaining sympathetic to the lighthouse’s heritage and significance as a local landmark, but most importantly to improve upon reliability and to continue its vital role in aiding the safety of navigation in Jersey’s waters, as it has done for nearly 130 years.

[Re: Sealite Wins Duke’s Choice Award for Java Technology & the Environment – Sealite GSM monitoring & control system]. The team at Motorola were extremely impressed with Sealite’s innovative integration of the G24-Java wireless module in their GSM Monitoring & Alarm System.

As one of your new distributors (Belize and Honduras, Waller Marine Belize LTD), I would like to express my congratulations to you and your people in providing reliable, dependable and inexpensive products. Formerly we were distributors for a Canadian made product but these were found to be too expensive for the market and also offered only difficult and complicated programming. Our first order of lights from you (SL15’s) took only four days to arrive from Aussie Land, when I opened the box they were still flashing. I tested a SL60 (white) for four days (steady on) before it required a recharge…remarkable. I will be placing another order shortly. Keep up the good work.

[Re: Installation of WindTalker for kite-surfing club], The WindTalker™ is a big success here in Cyprus, thanks to your after sales support the unit is now functioning perfectly.

-Christophe Meletiou

We choose to sell Sealite … this is a long story, well we treat Sealite as our own and the relationship we have developed with Jeff and Chris and their attitude and commitment towards growing Sealite to this stage is remarkable. We feel at home when talking to them and the staff of Sealite and this in turn gives us more security and strength in selling products in India.

[Re: Sealite Solar-Powered LED Area Lighting system], We chose the Sealite system for the Jacobs Well Queuing Pontoon due to our previous experience with Sealite’s product, its durability and construction.

-Peter Taylor

I just wanted to say thank you for the light and bracket Sealite supplied to Birkenhead Marina. As the other lights (old ones) need new batteries I will be replacing them with new lights from Sealite and the same brackets that you supplied with the light we received last week … Your product is excellent and the system of setting the light is good also. Thanks again for all your trouble.
