Choosing the Best Loading Dock Lights

When choosing the best loading dock lights to protect your facility there are a few different key factors to keep in mind. To ensure that you are getting the proper dock lights at the best price follow these helpful tips.

Loading Dock Lights

 

Know your type:

  • The Folding Arm - With it's incredible design, construction and performance, the Tri Lie loading dock light offers flexibility at a great price. You can choose from a 40 inch or 60 inch extension to illuminate a greater area.

  • The Double Strut - When looking for a stronger model that can hold in a horizontal position the Double Strut model is your best bet. This design features bronzed sintered barings for all rotating points, 1 1/2 inch 14 gauge square tubing that will easily prevent sagging and easily adjustable pivot friction to help hold any position. The safety-yellow finish on the lamp head and struts offer an extra level of protection as well.

These heads give you a whopping 500w of power and up to 24,000 hours of life with an energy usage of just 50w. You can easily conserve energy and save money all at the same time.
