Classic Lamp Posts Gillette Base is made from resin which means it’ll last forever when placed outside. The polyethylene blends that are used to create this decorative street lighting base make it impervious to environmental corrosion. The Gillette base was made to replace cast iron or fiberglass bases on municipally installed Light Poles. The Gillette base is 34” tall and comes in a clamshell configuration for easy installation. The 7.75” opening and 22” base diameter will fit many existing poles. Standard colors are Black, Bronze and Green.
