Allmand has strengthened its relationship with CAPS Australia, offering access to an expanded range of lighting towers to meet the surging demand.
Richard Sweet, Marketing Manager - Portable Products at CAPS Australia says that two new trailer-based models have been introduced to the range to meet industry demand. The compact Night Lite Pro II meets the requirement for a smaller footprint machine, and provides safe working illumination with a combined light output of more than 440,000 lumens, which exceeds most alternatives in a similar size and price range.
Sweet adds that this lighting tower is ideal for users in urban environments who seek a full-featured, quality manufactured machine at a very competitive price. The Night Lite Pro II uses a Kubota diesel engine, four 1,000 watt metal halide lamps on an adjustable head as well as two 10 amp, 240 volt auxiliary power outlets.
The Mine-Spec lighting tower boasts six 1,250 watt metal halide lamps on an adjustable head, powered by a 1.5 litre Caterpillar engine driving a 15 kW generator. Built tough to withstand a range of arduous mining operating environments, the Mine-Spec features heavy duty components and a 265-litre fuel tank, and can safely illuminate an area the size of one and a half tennis courts with an output of 900,000 lumens.
Both 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 the towers, which can be raised to their full height in 25 seconds. While the sectional tower has a typical design, both towers incorporate nylon guide sleeves to give smooth operation and help stabilise the tower when extended. Together with four adjustable stabiliser outriggers, the unit can withstand wind gusts of up to 100 kph.
Though built in the US, the mine spec lighting towers incorporate switches and circuit breakers that comply with Australian regulations and standards.
Sweet explains that safety is a priority across the entire Allmand range, with both units offering environmental fluid containment systems, and battery isolation and emergency stop buttons as standard; options such as fire extinguishers and auto start/stop controllers are also available.
The two new lighting towers complement Allmand portable equipment such as the Maxi Lite ML6V and ML8V also available from CAPS, and are ideal for companies requiring temporary lighting for a variety of open-air applications including events, civil construction and open-cut mining.
Allmand has manufactured thousands of these reliable, quality and cost-effective portable lighting systems worldwide. Allmand’s lighting towers enhance operational performance and safety around domestic, industrial and mining applications.
