Coming into winter, lighting becomes a priority on all sites and workplaces. It is essential for the health and safety of everyone in the workplace that they are operating in a well-lit area and can see not only the job at hand but also those working around them.

Laois Hire has a large selection of nationally available portable lighting solutions to ensure your location is always fully illuminated. It has been continuously investing in its lighting division over the years and has succeeded in building an expansive selection of top-quality lighting options.

Laois Hire supplied hundreds of lighting towers at the most recent National Ploughing Championships in Carlow in 2019, illuminating the way for some 81,000 attendees at the event.

Laois Hire Lighting Towers

Their most popular lighting solution is the advanced MHM X-ECO (LED6) Lighting Tower. Features include a 6 x 150W LED lighting head, Kubota electric start diesel engine and a Dusk ‘til Dawn Auto Stop/Start sensor. This reliable tower is very compact for easy transport, which is essential when flexibility counts on fast-moving construction sites.

Portlaoise Branch Manager Niall Brennan says: “Our customers love the fuel-efficient aspect of these particular lighting towers and the ease of use that the Auto Stop/Start Sensor brings. With other lighting towers, you have to send somebody out to site with a key to turn on or off, but with this sensor, the tower turns itself on when light is fading and turns off when the night ends.”

The high lighting capabilities are ideal for helping to get the work done after dark. Their top-class lighting equipment has been called upon on high profile sites over the years, including the New Ross Bypass & the award-winning Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Bridge, the National Children’s Hospital Dublin, Dublin Port and most major resurfacing projects around the country.

Graham Doyle, from Roadstone Contracts Divisions, says, “We are a long-standing customer of Laois Hire and can say without hesitation that they provide a brilliant and reliable service. In particular, we have found their lighting towers to be an essential item to ensure worker safety and productivity on site. The ease of which they are transported is also a major advantage.”

Winter site essentials

Laois Hire also has many other winter essentials to keep you going through the cold months, including heaters, small & large generators, DIY essentials and pumps to clear water from flooded areas quickly and efficiently.
