South Africa: Atlas Copco’s HiLight LED Light Tower range just got even better!

Atlas Copco is globally renowned for its proven range of superior quality, compact range of HiLight LED light towers that is defined by unrivalled performance, flexibility and efficiency. Through ongoing investment in R&D, Atlas Copco takes its cutting-edge design and smart technology up yet another notch with the introduction of the new HiLight H6+ unit.   

“Featuring a light distribution of up to 6,000 m², fuel and CO² emissions savings ofup to 40%, 600 hour service intervals, 5dB(A) lower noise levels and Atlas Copco’s innovative HardHat® body, our new HiLight H6+ light tower is where the smart money is,” says David Stanford, Atlas Copco Power Technique Business Line Manager, Portable Products.

The unit’s new generation heavy-duty IP67 rated LED floodlights boast increased efficiency, an impressive life expectancy of 50.000 hours and optimal light distribution with up to 6.000 m² of illumination area. The HiLight H6+ is also equipped with a dimming function that offers the right luminosity at all times while delivering up to 40% C0² savings and extending the autonomy by over 300 hours. Thanks to its smart design, the light tower boasts one of the lowest fuel consumptions in the market. The LED’s high Colour Rendering Index (CRI) score provides vibrant lighting with zero shadows for safe and efficient night time work. With a noise reduction of 5 dB(A), the quiet HiLight H6+ operates at 55dBA at 7m, further improving the working environment.

“But Atlas Copco’s innovative HardHat® body is where the HiLight H6+ really comes into its own,” notes Stanford.  Manufactured from medium-density polyethylene, the environmentally friendly HardHat® is both corrosion- and crack-resistant.  Thanks to the polyethylene material’s UV stability and long-term antioxidants, it can also withstand low and high temperatures. This exclusive HardHat® body effectively protects the working operation underneath the tower from the elements, making the light tower ideal for seriously tough environments in the construction, road works, mining, events, and rental sectors. Stanford points out that this ingenious design and tough material combination ensures lasting performance and appearance, helping to retain a high resale value and providing customers with outstanding total cost of ownership. The HiLight H6+ is available in customisable colours to meet customers’ individual preferences.

“Maintenance and transport efficiency was a priority when designing the HiLight H6+,” states Stanford. Moulded into a single pop-up canopy, the HardHat® body is easy to fit and remove from the light tower and also provides 360° access to the unit facilitating maintenance. “The light tower only requires a simple service after 600 hours of operation which can be carried out in a remarkably short 40 minutes!” The easily accessible controller and heavy-duty filtration system further contribute to keeping service downtime to an absolute minimum.

The light tower’s compact footprint, four forklift slots, integrated lifting point and adjustable tow bar (offering three settings) facilitate handling and transportation; the HiLight H6+ can be easily and safely towed behind trucks, vans and pick-ups.

The B5+, V3+, H4, H5+ and battery operated Z3+ complete Atlas Copco’s extensive range of HiLight LED light towers.
