Shallow Foundation

Intelligent foundation systems for illuminated post installations

The NAL Shallow Foundation (or “Bridge Deck) Retention Socket system is part of a patented range of fittings designed to secure all types of illuminated and non-illuminated street furniture which are being installed in locations with restricted depth.  The product enables easy removal of the furniture 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.
