Several years ago, a light tower could be considered as a simple commodity product with limited life expectancy. 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 HiLight V4 is the leading solution within the 4000W metal-halide light tower segment, while the HiLight V5+ is a premium model incorporating LED lighting technology and increased fuel efficiency. The V5+ offers significant fuels savings of up to 60% when compared to the typical fuel consumption of 6kW Metal Halide solution, creating industry leading competitive advantage. 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. 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.
