Kennards Hire has announced that its Traffic hire centres now offer lightweight backpack lights designed to increase safety and productivity by leaving a worker's hands free for other purposes.
These versatile backpack lights are suitable for a range of applications, with supervisors on night time rail and road projects among those that would find the new units particularly useful.
Adding to the versatility of the lights, they can also be fitted on to machinery and equipment where required.
Additional applications where these backpack lights would come in "handy" include:
- sewer and other tunnel work
- search and rescue operations; and
- disaster relief.
The backpacks weigh only 9kg, while the glare-free, 35W HID (high-intensity discharge) light covers an area of about 250 sq m. Lighting envelopes can be adjusted to 360 degrees or 180 degrees vertically or horizontally.
A 1kg Li-Ion battery powers the units, providing light for four hours, with a spare battery also available for projects of a longer duration.
Kennards Hire Traffic specialises in traffic control equipment, and operates hire centres in Queensland, NSW, Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia. These outlets work closely with Kennards' general equipment centres to ensure the needs of customers are met.
