Labcraft, the industry-leading designers and manufacturers of LED lighting for commercial vehicles, is presenting three new lighting solutions at this year’s Automechanika and IAA shows in Germany which, says the company, will raise the bar for safety and illumination in the European and international vehicle work-place.
Banksman BM3, the World’s first Regulation 23-compliant manoeuvring lamp is designed to increase employee safety and safety of the public, while reducing vehicle accidents and cutting costs.
Mounted at various points on the underside of the chassis, the Labcraft Banksman BM3 system delivers additional bright, white light around the vehicle to areas which conventional reversing lights cannot reach. It is suitable for any vehicle required to work in areas of darkness or poor light and simple to install – either to pre-registered vehicles, as ‘standard’, or for retrofitting to an existing fleet.
Made from tough polycarbonate with strengthened lenses to protect its market-leading Cree LEDs, the Banksman BM3 is IP67-rated and is supported with a 5-year warranty. Its advanced internal electronics and heat management systems enable the Banksman BM3 to provide the powerful, bright white light that is consistent and compliant with Regulations. All Labcraft lights, including the Banksman BM3, are made at the company’s ISO9001 accredited manufacturing facility in Saffron Walden, Essex.
Also new at both the IAA and Automechanika Show is the Labcraft Vanlite LED lighting range – the first direct OEM replacement light for vans. The new Vanlite range is a high performance, direct OEM replacement workspace light for vans. It is compatible with all leading van types and up to 7 times brighter than the OEM-supplied equivalent.
For easy installation, the LED Vanlite plugs straight into the existing OEM aperture using an easy-fit plug/play connector which eliminates additional component costs such as cabling and switches. The Vanlite is manufactured using Cree high efficiency LEDs to maximise light output and is built by Labcraft in the UK with the latest high-tech heat management technology and hard-wearing components.
The new SI9 Scenelite is the first scene light product in the Labcraft range to offer a continuous light source to illuminate the work area for a wide variety of commercial vehicles, including emergency services, construction and agriculture, promoting safety within the vehicle industry.
Available in black or white, this versatile product can also be used in a wide range of additional applications such as for tail-lift lighting, rescue trucks, utility vans and the 4×4 sector to provide a wide beam of bright, white light which will illuminate the darkest working environments.
The SI9 is a compact design producing over 850 lumens of bright, white light through a tough Polycarbonate lens. The PC lens features an anti-glare light guide which disperses the light evenly to avoid any hotspots, providing a clean and sharp field of light.
The tough outer cover provides protection against severe weather conditions and pressure washing to give the SI9 an Ingress Protection rating of IP67.
