Transportation Lighting

Reliable Highway and Street Lighting

Achieve the most comprehensive understanding of the state of your lighting assets with Exo transportation lighting inspections with field data and condition assessments.

Exo lighting inspections are designed to find weld defects, improper handling, as well as corrosion and other damaging effects on aging street light poles and structures. Our inspector examines all transportation lighting components, including the base plate, welds, foundation, pole shaft, street light bulbs, and fixtures. Then our engineers conduct a full design review against the latest highway lighting standard. We can determine if lighting asset damage be remediated, or if its time to replace street lights or highway lighting.

An engineer may help conduct a design review, but they cannot gather field data or complete conditional assessments. On its own, a design review is often not adequate to reassure you that a street light pole or fixture is in an acceptable state, nor does it identify any manufacturing defects or age-related fatigue issues. Our review, paired with the field inspection and including nondestructive testing, gives you the most comprehensive understanding your street or highway lighting system.

Advanced Nondestructive Testing Methods Include:

  • Magnetic particle testing
  • Ultrasonic testing
  • Visual testing
  • Engineering review
  • Online portal access to photos and cloud data
  • Field remediation and repair
  • Field modification
  • Engineering design review
  • Subject matter expertise (industry standards)
