London Borough use Acrospire temporary solar lighting on StreetSafe initiative
While there are many debates about the correlations between crime, visibility and lighting, especially given the number of high profile cases in the news over the last year, it is clear that both men and women feel safer in adequately lit streets.
As part of the government’s plan to tackle violence against women and girls, police across the country are trialling a new online tool called StreetSafe.
The 3-month pilot enables people to report locations where they feel or have felt unsafe and identify why that location made them feel so.
Enquiries from London residents in Newington related to street lighting and poorly lit areas. The Metropolitan Police and Southwark Council surveyed the regions identified to solve their concerns.
Issues such as obstruction from overgrown greenery to faulty lamps were highlighted. One such area required new lighting, but a quick install was impossible due to local construction work.
An unexpected temporary solution was found to help residents feel safe.
Southwark Council installed Acrospire Mobile Solar powered units to illuminate the identified road (Gaza Street).
The Defenders supplied were 8W, boosting upon PIR activation. Supplied with 4000K CCT to provide adequate lighting to support CCTC in the area.
James Brooker, Acrospire comments, “Solar lighting is making real headway in the UK. Using solar as a temporary option allows lights to be placed quickly – where needed. They operate exactly the same as the permanent lights that will eventually be installed and allow for the same or similar lighting levels.”
Solar grid-free streetlights are a sustainable and dependable light source in residential communities. They provide high standards of illumination for both pedestrians and drivers without the necessary and costly electrical groundwork required for conventional streetlights. Therefore proving ideal for a temporary solution.

The idea for Acrospire was formed in 2012 when founder Tim envisioned a different kind of lighting manufacturer: one that would not only deliver outstanding customer experiences but also prioritise fair treatment for its employees.
We’ve come a long way
Motivated by the belief the industry wanted and needed better, Tim shared his plan to establish his own venture with Hatty, who simply couldn't let him do it alone.
The rest, as they say, is history.
Protecting local jobs and ensuring the best quality possible.
Working from a rented office by day and assembling lanterns in a garage at night, Tim and Hatty set to work.
11 Years later
Acrospire now inhabits a 14000² ft manufacturing facility in Basingstoke, Hampshire. We’re a proud partner of the Made in Britain scheme, ISO9001 certified and a member of all relevant lighting industry trade bodies.
Along with great relationships with our customers and a great team! We've attracted some of the most experienced members of the lighting industry, all by following one golden rule.
A simple ethos
That runs through all that we do. Customers who have made the switch to Acrospire have found working with us to be a breath of fresh air.
