Construction sites are extremely rugged and unpredictable, making such locations perfect candidates for the latest lighting technologies available on the market today. Light towers are common units found in construction sites, which are used for wide-area illumination over the location.
These luminaries provide elevated lighting and utilize powerful beams to enhance clarity for nearby workers. Traditional light masts incorporate standard-design lamps; however, this does not mean businesses are limited to using such fixtures. These days, businesses in the construction sector are deploying modern balloon lights at the job site for superior illumination.
Industrial balloon lights are large, inflatable luminaries that emit beams in a 360-degree configuration. The beam is often soft and glare-free, compared to traditional outdoor lamps that leverage tight beam configurations. These units can be mounted on poles or stands and incorporate water-resistant material to protect the internal components of the balloon. Furthermore, workers could look directly at the luminaries without suffering from temporary blindness.
Deploying balloon lights at construction sites can be completed in five minutes or less. Using an internal fan located inside the deflated unit, operators simply turn the inflator on while small holes around the balloon manage the volume of air. Some balloon lights don’t come with an internal fan, in order to prevent dirt from building up inside. For such models, a separate battery-powered blower could be used to inflate the balloon.
Balloon lights address several challenges with using traditional light towers at construction sites. These luminaries do not have to be continuously re-positioned, since they already offer 360-degree illumination. Both options are stable under windy conditions, with conventional light masts providing peace of mind for operators (less prone to getting blown away).
To conclude, balloon lights are viable alternatives for compact light towers at construction sites. For a comprehensive approach to illumination, businesses may consider using standard light towers over large sections of the job site, while using balloon lights for illumination over specific tasks.
