What Are CHANCE Lighting Foundations?

Just like your home, commercial buildings, and all other structures need a sturdy foundation, so do lighting fixtures. Whether you’re illuminating a parking lot, a neighborhood, or you’re looking to install similar products like signage, cell towers, or traffic lights, Walder Foundation Products here in Richmond has helical lighting foundations from CHANCE that are a safe choice for fast, easy, effective installation, even in inclement weather. The non-extendable shaft can be easily driven into the soil, then, after feeding the power conduit through the cableway and out the baseplate, you’re ready to hook up the electrical and run power to whatever structure you’re installing.

Lighting Foundations

Benefits & Features for Installers

The CHANCE lighting foundation services in Richmond feature Helical Foundations, a welded spiral plate that makes it easy to screw into the topsoil using hydraulic equipment or even smaller equipment like a skid loader or excavator. During installation, the load-bearing helix compacts any soft surrounding soil but does not remove any significant volume below grade to ensure the earth around the foundation remains tightly packed in place. Other benefits for installers include:

  • Multiple lengths to ensure proper application
  • Bend resistant 
  • Wind, compression, and uplift resistant 
  • Fast installation times
  • No additional concrete needed
  • Versatility in applications
  • Allows for installation in areas with poor access
  • Comes equipped with job-ready, pre-engineered details
  • Compliant with AASHTO standard specifications for structural supports for highway signs, luminaires, and traffic signals
  • Installation takes about 10 minutes & product allows for immediate loading after installation
  • Lightweight product reduces shipping cost and allows for the use of smaller installation equipment
