South African equipment supplier Lambson's Hire has purchased 10 Allmand tower lights from Mayday Equipment to further expand its offering in order to meet the growing needs of the region's mining industry
"The tower lights are particularly popular because of the added-value features they offer over and above such advantages as being fully compliant with all mine safety regulations and coming complete with locally manufactured four-wheeled trailers, thus facilitating logistics," commented Lambson's Hire CEO Devin van Zyl.
Powered by Caterpillar engines to ensure reliability, the Allmand tower light's gull-wing doors promote full access to all major service components. It boasts a four-point stabiliser system to provide improved stability in windy environments.
Sensitive environments also enjoy protection from accidental spills or leaks thanks to the full fluid containment systems. These considerations alone make it a favoured choice on mines because of the need to comply with stringent health and safety regulations.
The flexible tubing encasing the tower cable eliminates tangling and stretching while protecting the mast wiring from cuts and abrasions. The hydraulically activated vertical tower itself provides intuitive lamp positioning so that fixtures can be adjusted accurately from the ground, remaining at the desired angle and direction as the tower is extended.
"Not only can the unit be used on uneven underfoot conditions to achieve greater flexibility in application because of the 4x4 drive, but as an integrated unit including chassis, generator and light mast it is also easily transported," van Zyl pointed out.
"The trailer's three outriggers add further stability to the tower light. And even with the addition of the trailer, the unit is very competitively priced," he added.
