Jennette’s Pier was first opened in South Nags Head, North Car­olina back in 1939. Part of the Outer Banks, it was a pop­u­lar des­ti­na­tion for fish­er­men young and old in search of catch­ing a red drum, blue­fish, striped bass, floun­der, or king mack­erel. Built orig­i­nally to 754’ long and 16’ wide with a 28’ wide T-shaped end, Jennette’s Pier with­stood many hur­ri­canes and nor-easter storms, though parts includ­ing the pier house had to be recon­structed sev­eral times.

In 2003, the pier was sold to the North Car­olina Aquar­ium Soci­ety. When it was later mostly destroyed by Hur­ri­cane Isabel, the soci­ety deter­mined it would be best to rebuild in con­crete, cre­at­ing a 1,000; long edu­ca­tional ocean pier. Most recently, Hur­ri­cane Dorian dam­aged the wind tur­bines of Jennette’s Pier, but the con­crete con­struc­tion proved hur­ri­cane-worthy.

Inula Columns by Selux were chosen for the latest light­ing update to the pier, in part because of their Dark-Sky Friendly light­ing, but also for the strength and dura­bil­ity. The columns can be seen in many wed­ding pho­tographs taken at the pier, and create a com­fort­able ambi­ence for night events. Inula helped with Jennette’s Pier’s LEED Plat­inum Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion, the high­est honor from the USGBC.

  • The Inula Bollard and Column are sophisticated and environmentally friendly pathway and area luminaires with no up light. The proprietary optic provides clean lighting patterns with no striations. A recessed LED light engine, convex cone shaped light chamber, and matte Black finish provides a BUG up light rating of U0.
