The Wanco Light Tower's high-efficiency light fixtures provide a uniform light pattern; specially designed to increase filament life, they keep light on the job longer. Each of the four lights can be aimed independently, without tools. The tower features Teflon spacer bushings for smooth, stable operation. The telescoping mast extends to 30 ft., can be manually or electronically raised, and rotates nearly 360 degrees. Gull-wing doors and a hinged top panel provide easy access to the diesel engine, generator, and electrical components. Wanco Inc. www.wanco.com.
Portable, glare-free lighting
Ideal for construction sites and special events, the Glow- Bug Solo Jr. provides 360 degrees of glare-free lighting.

Other features include an air shock-absorbing mast system that protects the bulb and prevents sudden descent and an energy-saving 400 W lamp.

Elegant outdoor lighting
The Federal Globe, with its traditional acorn design, lends a timeless look to outdoor environments. It features the Moldcast Contra Cline optical system, a multi-tiered reflector assembly composed of seven reflective elements that surround the fixture's lamp, resulting in better night visibility, low glare, and uniform illumination. It comes in two sizes, large and small, to accommodate various mounting heights. Architectural Area Lighting. www.aal.net.
The C-100PA high-intensity ultraviolet lamp helps check for cracks, defects, contamination, and surface flaws in confined places that are inaccessible to larger lamps.

Vertical light tower
A new addition to the Night-Lite Pro series light towers, the V-series vertical light tower configuration is more compact than standard light towers. Because the telescoping mast and light fixture assembly stays within the footprint of the trailer when lowered, it takes up less space and is easier to set up, harder to damage, and easier and less expensive to ship, tow, and store. Its electric winch allows the mast to be raised and lowered in 20 seconds. Plus, the design enables accurate light fixture positioning. Allmand Bros. Inc. www.allmand.com.
