Innovative mobile Light Tower lights up rural Australia
Newly released, the Aust Light Tower is a unique mobile outdoor lighting
solution that is light weight and mobile and ideal in the rural sector for night
harvesting, maintenance works or for any large area requiring lighting.
The Aust Light Tower can be used in places where electricity is not available as
it can be powered by a 1.5 kilowatt fuel efficient four stroke generator. What
sets the Light Tower apart is its compact size, affordability and low energy
use, while still emitting high capacity illumination.
Consisting of an inflatable, adjustable semi-transparent tube, the Aust Light
Tower stands up to five metres high and is capable of illuminating an area of
10,000 square metres.
It weighs only 25 kilograms and can be easily operated by one person. The
adjustable tube inflates within 60 seconds using a built-in fan and after five
minutes the sodium lamp reaches full brightness.
The Aust Light Tower is made of a special semi-transparent material that helps
to defuse the light, giving a softer light so that users have better visibility.
Shadows that normally accompany flood lights are greatly reduced and as the
Light Tower is lit from above, users can focus on the task at hand rather than
be distracted by strong lighting.
Compact in size, the Aust Light Tower can fit in the boot of a car, unlike other
mobile lighting equipment that is heavy and needs a dedicated trailer for
The Aust Light Tower is stable and can withstand wind gusts of 70 kilometres per
hour with the assistance of tension ropes. The Light Tower can also operate
under harsh conditions, for instance from sub zero temperatures to the heat of
the Australian desert.
"The Light Tower has received rave reviews from everyone who sees it, as there
is nothing else on the Australian market like it," said Stephen Crocker,
managing director of Aust Light Tower.
Crocker noticed a gap in the market when he found there were no rapidly
deployable, cost effective portable lighting solutions available in Australia.
"Light Towers have been used successfully overseas, particularly in search and
rescues, disaster response, road construction and interestingly by the Russian
Space Program to recover space modules on their return to Earth.
"In Australia the Light Tower is already being used by airports, SES branches,
government defence departments and local councils. But the applications for the
Light Tower are numerous and varied. You could use it for promotion and
advertising, at sporting events or anywhere you need a large space illuminated,
quickly, easily and efficiently," said Mr Crocker.
The Aust Light Tower is affordable and economical selling for under $5,000, a
third of the cost for similar lighting devices and it is also much cheaper to
run. It is available in a low-frame and high-frame model, with the high-frame
model made to fit a generator.
