In a construction area, proper lighting is more than just important—it can be a matter of life or death. You can reduce virtually any danger with bright LED lighting, just as you can exacerbate a dangerous situation with insufficient lighting. Due to traffic, building use, and other concerns, most construction sites operate at night, making improved visibility that much more important. Let's explore why you should use LED lighting for a construction site and how to use them safely.
#1 Enhanced Visibility is Crucial
Your first consideration should be maximum coverage area and bright, efficient lighting for your construction site. The FoxFury NOMAD 360 provides the most brilliant LEDs at 8,800 lumens with glare-free illumination to prevent accidents and increase visibility. These lights also have optimized color rendering to mimic natural sunlight regardless of the time of day, which improves visual comfort and maximizes safety.
#2 Think About Portability
Once you have a durable, bright light source, consider how you'll apply it to a portable construction site. Draft a plan for portable lighting towers, including how they'll be maneuvered. You can tow the towers individually, or add them to a trailer. Don't forget to consider an adjustable tower so that you can extend or retract it based on construction needs. The FoxFury NOMAD 360 is designed to extend up to 8.5 ft and is compact and easy to transport.
In addition, an independent power source is key to most construction sites, especially on roadways or other hard-to-reach locations. The NOMAD 360 is powered by a rechargeable Li-ion battery system, providing up to 24 hours of run time.
#3 Use Durable Materials
You don't want a luminaire to fail you in the middle of a project, as that will inevitably result in more and more delays to maintain or replace the equipment and larger budget expenditures. The NOMAD 360 is made of industry-leading, high-quality materials to stand up against the wear-and-tear of rugged areas and constant movement, they're weather and waterproof and impact resistant.
#4 Create a Lighting Blueprint
Here's where you'll put your plan into action to increase worker safety. Consider the different areas that need lighting and their varying degrees of priority. Plan to concentrate most of your light directly in the regions that require a high level of visual accuracy or primary safety concerns. Keep this area illuminated within a minimum of 20 lumens per square foot. Areas surrounding construction equipment should be maintained at a minimum of 10 lumens per square foot. In areas where crews are moving from spot to spot but not concentrating work efforts should be illuminated to 5 lumens per square foot, minimum. The NOMAD 360 does exactly what its name implies – lights up a 360-degree area. It's luminaries deliver the brightest light in the industry, and it extends up to 8.5 ft to offer the best lighting for your construction budget.
