Expanded HSC line-up
HSC (Hire Supply Co) has continued to rationalise its LED lighting range, which includes its own Elite range and battery powered products from brands including Exin and Lind.
New to the Exin line-up is the IN1600L which has an improved light output. Another newcomer is the Lind Beacon 3600 battery light which provides up to 6,000 lumens and can operate for up to 25 hours at a reduced light output.
HSC’s own range of 110V Elite 50W Site Lights are available as mini-pods, magnetic lights, single head and double head tripod lights, pre-wired replacement heads or simply 50W heads on their own. Plasterer’s lights are now only available as LED versions including 2ft contractor’s units and 2ft and 5ft LED fittings for plastering and walk way applications.
Turning to HSC’s heating range, the company continues its close relationship with Master Climate Solutions, now part of the Dantherm Group, and has increased its line-up of diesel indirect heaters. It can now supply heaters from 21kW up to 225kW.
The Elite EH1400 R7S Golden tube heater, released last winter, is a 1,400W version of the Elite Heat quartz halogen heater but with only one element. It can be powered from a standard 13A 240V supply or from a 16A 110V source for spot heating applications.
New for this season and available from December will be the Elite Propane Bin Heater, a basic unit that requires no electricity and has an output of 25kW. HSC will also have available 2.4kW quartz halogen heaters with SK15 push-in quartz tubes in a metal body which will run from a 240V mains supply or on a 32A, 110V 5VA transformer.

Peli’s linkable lighting
Peli UK recently launched its linkable 9600 LED lighting system which is designed to illuminate long stretches of rail track, tunnels, roads and walkways without the hassle of heavier machines.
The company states that, being at least twice as efficient as fluorescent alternatives, the product can provide double the distance of illuminated work area from the same capacity of generator.
Engineered with side and end bracket attachment points, plus a stand system that can extend to a height of 3m, the 9600 modular light can be mounted to fences, hang overhead or stand on its own.
The optimised elliptical beam pattern is configured to provide as much lateral illumination as possible. Each light bar features a user-adjustable tilt mechanism, to focus light accurately and eliminate dark spots.
Morris gets set to shine
Morris Site Machinery reports that it is heading into the new lighting season with its most sustainable range of lighting towers to date. The solar-powered SMC TL60 Solar Trolley is an easily deployable machine that produces zero noise and zero emissions. Its dusk-till-dawn sensor provides light when needed, saving battery power and eliminating manual switching on and off. The unit comes with auto-dimmable lights, auto-timer and PIR (passive infrared) sensors as standard.
Also available is the SMC TL90 Evolve, which offers the functionality of the popular SMC TL90 but has a new ergonomic design and three lamp head options. It can be fitted with the standard four-LED head, the company’s Halo lamp head for diffused illumination, or a six-LED head, for what is claimed to be the brightest mobile lighting tower in the UK with an output of 217,500 lumens.
The improved design facilitates access for servicing and the shorter body makes for easier transportation. The machine has a noise rating of only 60dB(A) at 7m.

Atlas Copco HiLight
Atlas Copco’s HiLight E3+ electric lighting tower has four high-efficiency 160W LED lights to give 3,000m2 of illuminated coverage. The internal electronics, control panel and connectors are protected from the elements by the company’s HardHat canopy, and a 7m mast is incorporated.
Up to 32 of the compact units can be transported on a standard 13m truck, from which they can be offloaded and manoeuvred using their integral forklift pocket, crane lifting eye and/or wheels. The machine operates on single-phase 50/60Hz 230V or 110V power. 60Hz versions are also available, and 10 machines can be connected to one 230V power source, states the company.
Balloon goes up at Wacker Neuson
Wacker Neuson’s LB110M light balloon has a 110,000-lumen metal halide lamp that is designed to give 360° light coverage without glare. This makes it particularly suitable for road traffic applications.
The product operates from a mains supply and its tripod can extend to a height of 5m. For speed, the balloon only has to be opened like an umbrella, with no inflation required. It is made from glass fibre-reinforced synthetic material and it can be stored inside a van.
MHM increases its fleet
In readiness for the new season, MHM Plant has taken delivery of nearly 700 lighting towers from the Italian manufacturer, Trime. The order comprised LED diesel engine-powered X-Eco models, alongside the X-Hybrid Solar and X-Pole Solar sets. A fleet of Baby-Lite (LED-4) rigs completes the line-up.
MD Mat Llewellyn told EHN, “Although the X-Eco LED diesel powered unit remains one of our most popular lighting towers, there is a growing trend to seek out more sustainable machines, hence our investment in hybrid solar sets.”
The X-Pole Solar is powered exclusively via battery and solar panels, completely eliminating any carbon output. The Baby-Lite (LED-4) is manufactured exclusively for MHM. It has four 200W LED lamps fitted onto a 360º swivel and tilt lighting head, with a 4m vertical manual mast. The base has been configured to accept most brands of petrol or diesel generators from 2kVA to 6.5kVA.
Efficient BGG models
The new Bruno SiteLight RT road-tow lighting tower from BGG UK is claimed to offer more than 196 hours of running time and has four 250W light heads incorporating Cree long-life LED lamps. The power supply is 48V DC for added safety. The machine is also available as a static unit, namely the SiteLight ST, and as a hybrid model, the Bruno LionLight ST.
Also available is the EasyLight, which can be used both indoors or outdoors and offers a maximum 5m mast height. Similarly using 48V power, the machine uses LED light heads giving up to 60 hours of continuous use before recharging, with no CO2 emissions and zero noise.
Shindaiwa targets petrochemical sites
Shindaiwa reports that its industrial lighting division, Site Bright Ltd, continues to grow. It has been successful in obtaining a number of orders to supply contractors starting working on oil refineries and petrochemical sites shutdowns in early 2020.
The product range includes the M1 Series, an Atex Zone 1-approved portable tube light producing
Also available is the Ultra rechargeable battery-powered floodlight which can sustain an output of 3,200 lumens for eight hours per charge.
