Atlas Copco’s HiLight range breaks new ground
Atlas Copco is launching a new range of light towers designed to offer even more choice when it comes to finding the light tower that is right for a given application. The HiLight V4 and V5+ include a HardHatcanopy as standard, which ensures tough protection of internal parts. This range of light towers is intended to provide construction firms, outdoor event organisers and other industrial users with a dynamic set of lighting options to address all efficiency and safety requirements, while retaining the robust build quality and compact size for which Atlas Copco equipment is globally recognised.
The V4 model can illuminate an area of 4,000sqm and the V5+ can cover approximately 5,000sqm with an average of 20 lux. The LED lamps in the latter model are designed for both portability and performance, and heavy-duty floodlights benefit from high ingress protection (IP) and impact protection (IK) ratings. In addition, LED lamps offer users higher durability without any deterioration in lux level.
“Several years ago, a light tower could be considered as a simple commodity product with limited life expectancy” said Sergio Salvador, product marketing manager for the Atlas Copco range of light towers. “Today, however, we can offer a new level of durability and value with a multitude of options for customers and a clear value proposition that fits with their needs. No longer do buyers need to compromise by settling for a one-size-fits-all solution.”
The extended safety features give users complete peace of mind, even in the most demanding conditions. The light towers can be transported with their masts in a vertical position, enabling safer transportation and installation. As a result, it is possible to transport up to 20 units on a single truck, while eliminating the time-consuming and costly problem of bulbs being broken during the shipping process.
The vertical mast also aids the installation process and improves site safety, which is further enhanced with four heavy-duty stabilisers and a level indicator.
In addition, the new light towers come with the legendary Atlas Copco HardHat canopy as standard. Offering unrivalled tough but lightweight protection in order to maintain the value of the asset even after many years on the road.
Other features of the HiLight HardHat range include a 28-gallon fuel tank, which allows allows the units to run for multiple days without the need to refuel.
The light towers are equipped with Kubota EPA Tier 4 engines and offer increased serviceability with wide wing doors and all components easily accessible. Environmental considerations have also been taken into account, with a frame design that prevents oil, fluids and fuel from leaking out and contaminating the ground.
