As winter comes ever closer (3 weeks to go!), your lighting towers will be out and about being used more than they have been over the summer months. It is really important, for your safety and others, that the lighting towers are in good condition when they are going from hire to hire.
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.
At the beginning of May this year, the UK government announced that they wanted to focus on cutting emissions to zero by 2050. The CCC (the independent advisor to the government on climate change) says it is a “positive goal” to be aiming for. In the construction-hire industry, we are creating and innovating new equipment which can reduce emissions.
With our rainy and cloudy weather throughout the year, it is hard to believe that in the UK we can use solar power. Renewable sources of energy are becoming popular throughout the country with their many benefits, both environmental and financial. Before we dive in, I am going to give you my standard speech that I use when ever I am questioned on Solar lighting, it goes something like this...
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.
First it was Tungsten Halogen, then it was Metal Halide and now everyone is promoting LED, so why should you choose LED lamps instead of the aforementioned lamps, for your lighting tower?
