Safer lights


Hire Supply Company has unveiled high-efficiency work lights for internal works that avoid the high temperatures of halogen lamps. The E-Lite range uses a 27 W low-energy lamp that casts a soft light without casting stark shadows and can be linked in runs of 25-30 off a site generator. HSC's Dave Mann said: 'They are an alternative to the 500 W Halogen lamp without the fire or heat risks associated with running them for long periods. They would be ideal for applications such as refurb, and unlike other lamps they can be fitted with power takeoff sockets, too.' The firm has also launched a division to offer fire equipment including extinguishers and signage to hirers.
