Industrial quality lighting fixtures are normally the best option for improving illumination on job sites, due to their ability to withstand the harsh conditions typical to these environments. The issue however that many construction workers face with traditional industrial lighting is that it is not easily moved or relocated, which is essential to maintaining an efficient construction operation.
The lighting experts at Commercialledlights.com are proud to provide our contractors and construction managers with industrial quality temporary high bay lighting fixtures. These fixtures are not only durable and rugged but are also designed to be quickly transported to different jobsite locations with minimal hassle.
This portable fixture is an excellent choice for a wide range of users, from enterprise level construction operations to large commercial contractors and even residential home and garage project DIYers. Our temporary lighting fixtures are designed to replace traditional HID and metal halide type hanging lights, providing increased lumen output while consuming considerably less energy, all in a lighter weight, more compact and easier to use package.
- Wattage: 60w; 100w
- Kelvin: 5000k
- Certifications: UL Certified, IP64 rated
- Lumens: 7,500 / 12,500
These temporary high bays have many features that make them especially popular for commercial construction and contractor use. Our fixtures feature 10 foot power cords with a standard grounded plug that allow for easy setup on the jobsite without requiring an extension cord. They also can be daisy chained together through their integral power outlet system which provides intense lighting capabilities while allowing multiple units to be run off a single outlet. The power outlet port has an integral spring loaded cover that automatically closes when not in use to keep weather and dirt out.
On top of their adaptability features, these lights are equipped with a stainless steel guard that surrounds the LEDs, protecting it from impacts, falls, or any other accidental abuse that may occur on the job. Combined with an IP64 rating for weather resistance under wet high humidity environments and a similar level of performance as our standard industrial high bays, these lights are an excellent choice for both indoor and outdoor job site applications.
Benefits of LED Lighting
Many contractors are now understanding and appreciating the performance benefits of LEDs over traditional forms of lighting. When transitioning over to LED lighting, users immediately see improvements in lumen output and energy efficiency as well as higher lighting accuracy which increases worker productivity and safety. These benefits are applicable to a wide range of industries even outside of construction and contractor applications, making LED lighting the dominant choice for lighting in today's marketplace.
The first benefit noticed when transitioning to LED lighting is the significant reduction in energy consumption compared to traditional lighting such as HIDs, metal halides and fluorescent lamps. For many users, especially in large scale operations involving a significant number of lighting fixtures, this cost savings alone is more than enough to justify the switch to LED lighting, especially in the case of temporary lighting.
Oftentimes electricity for construction sites is provided by gasoline and diesel powered generators instead of traditional electrical hookups from a power company. In these situations, there is a limited amount of electricity available for the job site as a whole which is used not only for lighting but also for running equipment such as power tools, computers, heaters, battery chargers, etc.
LED technology offers a massive advantage in this type of situation as they use far less electricity than traditional lighting, freeing up electricity for other uses while still providing the illumination performance workers need. In large scale operations, this reduction in electricity consumption can even give contractors the option to use smaller generators for the construction site. These smaller generators not only save fuel, they also require less capital investment than a larger generator, resulting in even more long term savings.
In addition to their energy savings, LED lights also have a much longer lifespan than traditional lighting. The temporary high bay construction lights we offer are warrantied for a minimum of 50,000 hours, giving them a significantly longer life than HIDs or fluorescent fixtures. This can add up to a significant savings for contractors in both materials and labor hours that are associated with servicing lights. Like most LED lights, our lights are maintenance free throughout their entire service life, which means there is no need to keep spare parts on hand - resulting in even further savings.
The last main benefit of LED lighting is the increased accuracy of the light produced when compared to traditional lighting. This is measured using a scale known as the Color Rendering Index (CRI), which quantifies a light's accuracy in the reproduction of colors true to nature. The higher the CRI rating of a light, the better quality and more accurate the light it produces. This rating scale is used to measure the accuracy of both LED lighting and traditional lighting, making it a great way to compare performance.
Higher CRI lights have several benefits appreciated by construction workers and contractors, the first being an increase in worker visibility and a reduction in eye strain and fatigue. This increase in visibility has a big impact on worker safety by helping to prevent accidents that are caused by poor lighting quality. The reduced eye strain also makes for a better work environment, resulting in noticeable improvements across the board in both worker efficiency and productivity. For contractors doing detailed work such as painting, drywall, trim and interior finishing, the higher lighting accuracy is especially valuable as it can make flaws in their work much easier to notice and correct.
Q. Will these lights run on normal household voltage?
Yes, these lights are designed to run on standard 110/120V power commonly found in all types of structures in North America, including residential homes, commercial buildings and industrial facilities. However they will also run on 220/240V power if that is the only power source or if they are being used in other areas of the globe.
Q. How are these lights set up?
These lights are designed to be hung via their multi-purpose hook that functions both as a mounting point and also a carrying handle. This hook also folds down to reduce its size for easier transport and storage in-between job sites.
Q. How often do I need to replace the bulbs in these fixtures?
The LED bulbs in these fixtures last the lifetime of the unit, with a 50,000 hour rated lifespan. This means that if these lights are used continuously for a 40 hour work week, they would have a lifespan of approximately 24 years!
