A commonly asked question: how easy are these sustainable lighting towers to maintain? Hybrid, battery, electric and solar lighting towers are categorised under ‘Sustainable’ lighting towers. They are long-lasting, reliable, robust lighting solutions which are suitable for a vast range of applications – however, when and how do you look after them?

Portable, or mobile, lighting towers can be easily moved from site to site, or from one place at your event, making them versatile and effective at changing your lighting requirements. There is less pressure to “get it right” the first time. However, there are a few safety tips to consider when you are moving your lighting towers too.
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.
When working on construction, quarry, or event sites, contamination is more than likely. To reduce the spread of contaminates from site to site, getting the right equipment is important. Contamination doesn’t just include soils from one construction site to another, it also includes water, noise and CO2 pollution which are the biggest risks to the surrounding areas and people.
Like with anything, getting the size right is important. With the X-Splash, some points do need to be considered before purchasing this equipment. At Trime we have made a few suggestions to think about when considering the X-Splash Wash Bay.
Health and safety guidance should be followed in all industries, from construction-hire to events. When large machinery is being used, or work is being done during the night, knowing how to be safe is really important for people involved and the surrounding areas. From the right clothing to reducing contamination on site, we discuss how to manage Health & Safety on site.

Safety is extremely important and needs to be taken seriously, especially when heavy machinery is involved. From the clothing worn, to the use of the equipment, to the elements of the equipment, safety comes into all aspects of lighting tower use. Our lighting tower’s complex engineering and electrical systems can be dangerous if not operated correctly, so at Trime we make the safety of our products, employees and users our first priority.
Construction dust is created from many sources: demolition sites, removing tiles, plaster, paint and cement, the production of concrete and aggregates, and the list goes on. The dust becomes airborne, meaning the particles enter your respiratory system and build up over time in your lungs. It is important to reduce and control risk of construction site dust becoming a danger to employees and pedestrians in the surrounding area.
