Intelligent foundation systems for non-illuminated post installations

The NAL Non-Illuminated Retention Socket system is a range of ground socket fittings designed to secure all types of non-illuminated street furniture enabling their easy removal after impact simply with a key and a spanner.

All Retention Sockets are manufactured in cast steel or ductile iron and galvanised. A stainless steel locking mechanism located in the side chamber secures the street furniture in place. The Non-Illuminated Retention Socket is manufactured with a flat base and has the ability to be shortened on site. It is suitable for any type of non–illuminated street furniture such as bollards, signposts, seating, railing, litter bins, barriers, cycle stands, bus stops and your specific application.
