Much construction and maintenance work must be conducted in less-than-ideal lighting conditions. Whether it’s road repair performed at night when traffic is lightest, new construction initiated before electrical infrastructures have been installed, emergency repairs following a natural disaster, or a myriad of other applications, temporary lighting can often be a life-saver.
But all light tower rentals are not created equal. Each is engineered with specific features that make them most beneficial in particular situations and applications.
The most prominent features to consider when contemplating a light tower rental are:
- The height of its mast
- The power of its lights
The combination of these two specifications determines the area of illumination and intensity of light needed within a certain space. The power source determines the length of time lighting will last before refueling or recharging is required. Additional power options, such as solar panels, extend use beyond the primary power source.
When large outdoor areas and long time periods must be illuminated, reliability and coverage are key. Towable lights deliver the lighting power that is needed for concrete pours, parking lot paving, site prep, and other large-scale projects require. The best trailer-mounted light tower rentals are compact, with narrow bodies that allow for efficient towing and storage.
Wacker Neuson’s LTN series comes with a 30-foot adjustable tower with full 360-degree rotation, so operators can position lighting exactly where they need it. The tower, places lamp assemblies far above the work area to reduce glare, maximize coverage, and produce true, bright, uniform light. Ideal for isolated and rugged jobsites, the light towers’ plastic doors are dent proof and never rust. Wind and ungraded surfaces are no match; its four-point jack stands level out the most uneven terrain and provide stability in difficult conditions.
Portable Lighting Carts
Easy, one-person set-up, and ultra-compact design make portable lighting carts a strong choice when working in cramped quarters, true color and detail rendering is needed, or strong lighting must be moved often to different work areas.
Construction Electrical Products’ metal halide carts come with powerful 1000-watt elliptical lighting features. The elliptical design places lamps side by side, focusing light directly on the work area. Bulbs, rated for 10,000 hours and durable light heads are easy to install and remove from ballast, making for full portability and rapid deployment. Safety features include bright yellow powder coating and construction of tough 12-guage square steel tubing.
Portable Quartz Lighting
Durable and capable of withstanding the most brutal outdoor construction applications, quartz lighting can be the best light tower rental selection for working in wet weather. Waterproof housings and shatter-resistant lenses make them reliable and safe. Most quartz towers come standard with cord-wrap mechanisms and sturdy tripod bases to reduce the chance of tipping. In addition, top-quality quartz lighting towers incorporate all-metal components, with no plastic to break or crack.
The Construction Electrical Equipment quartz lights resist not only water, but salt and other corrosive materials. They are built of heavy wall-tube steel with fully adjustable telescoping masts. The light units themselves project a radiant spectrum that closely replicates sunlight, making them ideal for use in color matching or precision work is required.
