Loading Bay Lighting

Loading Bay Lighting

Loading bay lights have become an essential safety tool on loading docks far and wide, making them a safer place for pedestrians and vehicles to load and unload trailers.

Lets take a look at the three most common types of loading bay lights in further detail:


🚨 <Loading Bay Traffic Lights>
This is by far the most common and the most safe light used in loading bays. The striking and clear colours of red or green allows for immediate attention and action where required, minimising the risk of pending danger and accidents.
This simple light has proven to be an effective solution in loading bay environments and has become a necessity rather than an option for people’s safety.

🚨 <Low Bay Lighting>
Low bay lighting is typically used in areas with less vertical distance to cover. Lower installation positions require a shallower lighting angle that makes it easier to light up vertical spaces/smaller areas.
Low bay lighting does not tend to be as powerful as high bay lighting as they are not required to light up a wide area.

🚨 <High Bay Lighting>
High bay lighting is usually the best choice for indoor applications where the ceiling is high and the area is wide. This powerful lighting solution provides a bright illumination throughout large indoor places such as warehouses & manufacturing facilities.
High bay lights need to be well positioned to make sure they cast a strong, consistent and equally effective light that can cover both horizontal and vertical surfaces through a wide angle.

Traffic Light Systems

Traffic Light Systems

Traffic lights are signalling devices most commonly positioned on roads, junction intersections and pedestrian crossings to control the flow of traffic. They are also found in many other various areas of our life, on buildings, bridges, train stations, even in supermarkets!

They are installed globally and are instantly recognisable by always using the three standard colours of red, amber and green.

Here we will look at the three most common traffic lights used on our roads:

Red/Amber/Green Traffic Lights.

These lights are the most commonly found as we see them daily on the roads we use to help ease the flow of traffic. The red light means ‘stop’ the amber light means ‘caution’ and the green light means ‘go’. They assign the right of way for the road user and help to ensure our busy roads run as smoothly as possible.

Walking Man Traffic Lights.

These are usually indicators for pedestrians; indication when it is safe to cross a road by lighting up with a green walking man, or not yet safe by lighting up with a standing red man. The same notion of colours is seen here, green for go, red to stop.

Wig-Wag Traffic Lights.

Wig-wag lights are commonly found in colours amber-amber or red-red and are generally used on level bridge crossings and other places where there is a need to stop ordinary traffic flow.

Without these simple yet very effective lights, our roads would be in utter chaos as every year the roads get busier and busier with more traffic flowing through them. The use of technology monitoring and maintaining the flow of traffic through lights are a necessity in our everyday life.

LED Warning Signals

LED Warning Signals

The use of LED’s in safety devices such as warning signals is a huge advancement in technology as it increases the visibility of warning signals to a much brighter and higher level than ever before, meaning such signals are able to assist in providing better safety and security for people than ever before.

Warning signals are installed almost everywhere and play and undeniable part of our everyday lives without us even realising – they can be found everywhere from shopping centres, offices and schools to airports and construction sites.

When choosing the best warning signal to use, you must think of your application and remember it must attract attention instantly. This is why LED’s have been so beneficial in warning signals; not only are they much brighter than the traditional filament lamp, but they light up instantly once power is applied – there is no warming up time on these lamps. It is also imperative the warning signal used is clear and informative for the end user to be able to understand instantly.

The rapid advancement of Light Emitting Diode (LED) technology has had a positive effect in countless areas already to date but they are now becoming a staple in the lighting industry due to their low power consumption, their size and the colours available.
The fact LED’s are so small means so many more, clearer signs can be made which before with a filament lamp, had disadvantages, but now it is much easier to create multiple signs in one single unit.

Also worth noting is the colours available in LED’s, apart from the standard colours Red, Amber, Green etc, LED’s are also available in Infrared and Ultra-Violet giving such a wider range for a more beneficial and clearer warning signal.
