Lighting up design awards

“We’re thrilled to have our newest lighting innovation shortlisted as a finalist alongsideAustralia’s best designs,” Allight’s director of sales and marketing Paul Sowerby said.Sowerby said to be deemed worthy of a spot in the finals, each entry had to demonstrate innovation, visual or emotional appeal, functionality, quality and manufacture, human factors such as ergonomics, semantics and safety, and environmental sustainability. “This mobile lighting tower is versatile and highly functional in its design, and environmentally sound thanks to its efficient diesel engine and compact footprint,” he said.“Its unique set of operational features provides a crossover between mining and civil applications, making it ideal for temporary lighting needs and situations where the light position needs to change regularly – whether it’s illuminating a mine site, road works or a rock concert.”The lighting tower features a retractable drawbar, forklift pockets and lifting points and is compact enough for eight units to fit in a 40-foot cargo container.“One of its most notable features is the unique mast design, with an internalised hydraulic cylinder – this set-up protects the hydraulics, boosts the mast’s strength and durability, and extends its reach,” Sowerby said.Since its Australian launch in 2008, the NH6000 has been adopted BHP Billiton, Baulderstone, Omega Construction, rental companies such as Coates and local councils. However, its largest market remains international.Award winners will be announced on June 4 at a presentation in Sydney.
