Caps Australia introduces a new range of lighting towers from world-leading portable lighting technology pioneer, Allmand.
Richard Sweet, Marketing Manager - Portable Products with leading Australian-owned, independent generator and compressed air equipment supplier, Caps Australia, comments that the new Night Lite Pro II portable lighting towers have been introduced into their product range to meet heavy industry demand.
Introduced in response to requests for a smaller footprint machine, the compact Night Lite Pro II model provides safe working illumination with a combined light output of more than 440,000 lumens. Sweet adds the new range is ideal for users in urban environments who want 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, plus 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. Intuitive adjustment of the lamp head allows accurate positioning of the lights before extending towers, with the tower rising to its full height in 25 seconds.
While the sectional tower has a typical design, both towers incorporate nylon guide sleeves for smooth operation and also to help stabilise the tower when extended. Four adjustable stabiliser outriggers allow the unit to withstand wind gusts of up to 100 kph. Units are built in the US but incorporate switches and circuit breakers that comply with Australian regulations and standards.
Safety features in the Allmand tower range include environmental fluid containment systems, battery isolation and emergency stop buttons as standard, with options such as fire extinguishers and auto start/stop controllers also available.
The new trailer-based lighting tower units complement the range of several Allmand portable systems available from CAPS including the Maxi Lite ML6V and ML8V, with the entire product range ideal for companies requiring temporary lighting for a variety of open-air applications, such as events, civil construction and open-cut mining.
