Lighting towers have been lighting up construction sites for over forty years across the globe. To this day, they are still being developed for versatility across a range of working environments and reduced emissions and noise for an eco-friendly lighting solution. More recently, lighting towers are more often used for events and TV/film sets, helping to illuminate large working areas and create a safer environment for all involved.
Lighting towers can be used in fields, on construction sites, for events and on TV and Film sets too. They are mobile and fuel-efficient - but what are the key features of lighting towers required for TV and film applications?

During the winter, it gets cold and the X-Splash does need a little more TLC to ensure it is all running efficiently through this season. We’ve written five checks for you to do when the cold really hits!
A-Plant (alongside Balfour Beatty) tested the X-Hybrid lighting tower from Trime UK, a unit with batteries and a fuel-efficient back-up engine. This case study shows how the construction industry is benefiting from new, innovative, sustainable plant.
Over the years, diesel-powered lighting towers have been the go-to option without question for temporary lighting on construction sites, security, sports, and the list goes on. Today, there are many alternatives in the mix to choose from: solar, hybrid, battery and electric. But diesel units are still powering on as the leaders.
Glare is the difficultly of seeing in the presence of a bright, usually white, light. This can be generated from reflected sunlight, or artificial light (i.e.: from car headlights). With the latest technological developments, glare-free (or anti-glare) lighting towers are now available, helping to make a more comfortable working environment for builders, construction managers and others who may be working on a site that requires lighting support.
