Caps Australia announces an expanded range of lighting towers designed for temporary lighting requirements in a variety of open-air applications such as events, civil construction and open-cut mining.
Leading Australian-owned, independent generator and compressed air equipment supplier CAPS has strengthened its relationship with the world-leading lighting tower technology pioneer, Allmand to further expand the manufacturer’s local presence in Australia.
Richard Sweet, Marketing Manager - Portable Products with CAPS explains that the extended range has been introduced into the Australian market following industry demand.
The compact Night Lite Pro II meets the need for a smaller footprint machine while providing safe working illumination with a combined light output of more than 440,000 lumens, far greater than most alternatives of its size and price. Sweet comments that the new lighting tower is ideal for users in urban environments seeking a full-featured, quality manufactured machine at a very competitive price.
The Night Lite Pro II uses a Kubota diesel engine with four 1,000 watt metal halide lamps on an adjustable head and the bonus of two 10 amp, 240 volt auxiliary power outlets.
The new Allmand lighting towers use a six-section, hydraulically actuated automatic lift mechanism to elevate the lamp head to almost eight metres above the ground, and can be raised to their full height in 25 seconds. Intuitive adjustment of the lamp head allows accurate positioning of the lights before extending the tower. While the sectional tower is a typical design, nylon guide sleeves are incorporated to give smooth operation and help stabilise the tower when extended. The unit features four adjustable stabiliser outriggers enabling the unit to withstand wind gusts of up to 100 kph. Units are built in the US and comply with all Australian regulations and standards.
Safety features in the Allmand lighting tower range include environmental fluid containment systems, battery isolation and emergency stop buttons provided as standard, with options such as fire extinguishers and auto start/stop controllers also available.
The new trailer-based lighting tower complements the range of portable equipment available from CAPS, including the Maxi Lite ML6V and ML8V.
