BERLIN, Wis. – Feb. 20, 2018 – Reducing glare is a concern in many applications that require light towers. When used near roadways, it’s important to avoid blinding drivers. At special events, too much light can distract from the festivities at hand. And many municipalities are focused on reducing overall light pollution.

To address these issues, Generac Mobile Products has introduced diffuse metal halide kits. The kits can accommodate four 1000- to 1250-watt metal halide bulbs to provide even, 360-degree lighting for applications from road construction to oil field operations to outdoor events, with coverage up to 160,000 sq. ft.

"The diffused lighting kits are a great way to increase utilization of older light towers," said Dave Streiff, vice president of sales, Generac Mobile Products. "They give new life to existing inventory quickly and easily."

The diffused lighting kits are currently available for all Generac Magnum metal halide light towers. They are engineered to install in about an hour, minimizing downtime and labor costs. All necessary installation hardware and wiring is included, and no welding is required. The kits can be towed immediately after installation and have a wind rating of 65 mph — identical to the light towers before installing the kits.
