For LED lamps on construction sites, a simple and powerful design is needed to ensure reliability in rugged conditions. Complicated and flimsy mounts are sometimes difficult to implement in such locations, due to lengthy installations requiring tools and stable structures. LED wobble lights are superior solutions for such limitations typically encountered with deploying portable fixtures on uneven ground or extreme environments requiring close observation of safety.
Read on to learn more about how the LED light works and its applications in construction and industrial work sites.
Strong Foundation, Robust Illumination
The main feature of an LED wobble light is its well-balanced foundation. The unit sits on a round base that is counter weighted, so that when a worker accidentally bumps into the unit, it will remain upright. During an encounter, a bit of wobbling is needed for the lamp to return to its original position (hence, the name).
As a rugged light that is deployed as close to the target as possible, the lamp’s parts must be protected with sturdy material, such as polycarbonate. Furthermore, the fixture should be diffused to prevent the creation of glare and to reduce the possibility of blinding for workers within close proximity of the unit.
Since direct contact with workers on the construction site is expected, the LED lamps may also incorporate active cooling features to avoid hot encounters with the portable fixture.
LED Wobble Light Applications
LED wobble lights have numerous uses on construction sites and other industrial projects. They can be utilized during inspections, HVAC installations, tank cleaning, maintenance and more. Explosion proof variants are suitable for work in confined spaces and flammable locations.
Most LED wobble lights can illuminate a target from distances between 15-30 feet. As a luminary capable of 360-illumination, the unit can easily replace 2-3 directional lamps on the work site.
