Durability

The aluminum sheets on our reflector design are waterproof and sturdy

The aluminum sheets can handle any weather and not rust or wear away

Cement surrounds the metal pole so it will not move around

The metal sheets are screwed into a grip tie so they will stay put without moving around due
to wind
