During any construction, engineering or maintenance project, you’ll have to make a decision on the kind of lighting that will bring the best possible visibility around your worksite.
There are a lot of options, and the location and geography of your worksite will influence which lighting solutions are appropriate. One popular choice is tower lighting, which can suit a multitude of sites and conditions. So, let’s take a look at the benefits of tower lights in more detail.
Fast, easy set-up
Portable light towers are simple and fast to erect – you don’t need any special training or anything beyond the provided step-by-step guide. For large worksites, the quick set-up speed means a significant amount of time is saved overall. That lets you get stuck into the actual work much quicker.
As you might expect from something with ‘portable’ in the name, portable light towers are very easy to transport. With rugged wheels attached, they can cover rough worksite terrain easily – and, thanks to their sight level indicators, they can be safely deployed on uneven ground.
Powerful lighting coverage
For all their portability prowess, tower lights wouldn’t be much use if they didn’t shine brightly. Equipped with metal halide lights – four times more powerful than tungsten halogen bulbs – tower lights provide strong lighting over a wide area. For example, on a dark, twilight worksite, our portable tower lights can cover an approximate area of 4500m².
For worksites located near public spaces or residential areas, noise pollution is an important consideration. Tower lights need to comply with noise regulations. Our tower lights operate at 88Lwa/65DBa – making them completely suited to city centre construction sites, or even public events or festivals.
Source of power
Perhaps the most convenient benefits of portable tower lights is the fact they come with a built-in generator. This can provide a strategic power source across worksites, meaning a more efficient use of power than having to draft in additional, separate generators.
With a 240V power supply, other essential electrical units and equipment can be ran through your tower lights. Not only that, but our portable towers have a running time of 96 hours before they need to be refuelled. This is perfect for weekend work onsite or at a festival.
Wide range of applications
As we’ve alluded to, tower lights aren’t exclusive to the construction industry. While they are a valuable tool for building sites, portable tower lights also provide an efficient lighting solution for the following applications:
- Roadside maintenance
- Railway repair, construction and maintenance
- Sporting events
- Music festivals
- Local events
- Outdoor training events
