We all rely on trains: whether we are going to London for a day-trip, a student going back home, or when you’re going to work, we rely on this system to work. However, this industry is constantly upgrading and works are always happening, at weekends or overnight, to ensure we have a safe journey.
Throughout winter, the darker nights and shorter days increases your need for lighting towers. They are everywhere – lighting up your events, roadworks and car parks. The winter weather can be unpredictable, so there are a few things to consider when using your units.
There are many sustainable lighting tower variations entering the market, and these options are becoming sort-after by many companies due to their environmental benefits. However, how do you know which one is right for you and your company?
At Trime, we understand the importance of being environmentally conscious, pushing for the eco-friendly equipment in all industries from construction to events. We offer a vast range of lighting tower products which are emission-reducing and noise reducing, which creates many financial, and eco-advantages for all companies.
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.
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.
In previous blogs, we have discussed all the benefits of battery power, whether hybrid power will be the way forward and if solar power works in the UK. However, there is another alternative (apart from engine-powered) we want to talk about today: plug-in lighting towers.
With lighting, technical terms do come up as they play a part in the science behind how they work. If you are slightly confused by what means what, here is a quick overview of some lighting terms.
Updating your lighting tower fleet may seem something which can be put off, or not done at all. However, it is important to keep up with the latest tech developments, whilst ensuring your lighting towers are safe and reliable: reducing risks of injury or lighting tower failure. Additionally, there is growing pressure from the government to reduce emissions to zero by 2050. So, whether this means updating your fleet from old metal halide lights to LED units, or to hybrid products from engine-powered lights, updating will benefit the environment, users and your company.
There are many types of lighting towers available and it can be daunting to know what is best for you, especially if you’re new to the industry. From battery-power to hybrid units, each have their own financial and environmental benefits for the user.
