High Power Worklights

Clear and reliable portable light is essential to safety and precision in confined spaces. Inside pipes, tanks, pressure vessels and silos, the last thing any maintenance worker needs is bulb or battery failure. GO Distribution has introduced rugged portable LED work lights designed to provide 10 years or more of optimum clarity and reliability, or 50,000 hours of outstanding illumination. The cordless HEMIPRO™ High Power Worklights incorporate the first use of high power LEDs in work lights originally designed for the professional automotive repair market, making them ideal also for use in a broad range of resources, industrial, construction, energy, engineering, water, waste water and safety tasks. Using either two or three High Power LEDS, the HEMIPRO™ 2 LED and 3 LED work lights provide exceptionally powerful beams which, respectively, equal or exceed the light area intensity of a 60W or 75W beam,. The uniquely engineered hemispherical lens design refracts the LEDs into an exceptionally clean, bright and wide beam.

Engineered as a pyramid post for use on metal-pitched roofs, as well as profile sheet and standing seam roof structures, the Soll Xenon Interfix Roof Bracket provides secure access on new and existing buildings. Foldable and adjustable, the bracket can be used on all common sheet dimensions. Similar to the Soll Xenon Interfix Roof Bracket, the Millerfix Anchor Point is a surface mount fall arrest point designed to be mounted directly onto most metal roof profiles, however it is engineered to provide lower visual intrusion on structures, making it ideal for commercial or residential projects wanting to maintain an aesthetically pleasing exterior.
