Safety lighting: Light poles are an enormous part of each city’s landscape. Drive down a city street and watch as pole after pole comes into your view. Each light pole has an oval hole—usually near the base—designed to allow service technicians access to electrical wires. A metal plate covers the hole—initially. But many metal plates get stolen or corroded, leaving potentially deadly wires exposed.

The Kelly Group patented the Access Ready Panel in 1998. It is THE solution to the safety and aesthetic issues caused by missing or damaged plates. The fine injection molding forms perfectly to round poles up to 12 inches in diameter, and the special locking device prevents would-be theft. Simple, fast, safe. Everybody wins: citizens gain protection against unwitting danger, the city removes a blight, and the integrity of the electrical network gets protected.

The Access Ready Panel contains just four pieces: a high-density polyethylene plastic shield, a corrosion-resistant mounting handle, a tamperproof bolt key, and a bolt. The kit takes just seconds to install and fits on the vast majority of light poles.
