ECO-conscious Morris Site Machinery is celebrating a hat trick for its SMC Solar Lighting Tower range with orders, awards and a production milestone.
At the Speedy Expo Supplier Awards, held at the Liverpool Exhibition Centre on Wednesday 30 October, the SMC eco mobile lighting towers were crowned as brilliant sustainable lighting solutions in the prestigious Innovation Awards.
The company also celebrated a sizeable order from Speedy Hire, and at the same time the 100th new generation solar tower came off the production line confirming the company’s status as the first and still leading solar tower manufacturer in the UK.
The SMC TL55 Solar is impressing the industry as demand grows for a truly sustainable and low maintenance tower light. With both battery and mains supply, it has zero noise, emissions and offers flexible options for all site applications. It also has capacity to run indefinitely.
UK Sales Director Richard Denholm said: “What a week in this key lighting season for us! This kind of recognition and feedback drives us forward, inspiring our designers to continue to innovate so we bring to market practical and economical lighting products for a cleaner, greener future. Solar power does not release any harmful emissions or pollutants and is leading the renewable charge.
“This latest order from Speedy, the UK’s leading provider of tools and equipment hire and services, underlines the growing environmental awareness in the sectors we serve.”
Morris Site Machinery has refined its solar lighting offer since producing its first model, a fast road tow mobile lighting tower powered from four solar panels supplying power to lead acid batteries.
Improvements include 140 watt solar panels, higher output LEDs providing 31,200 lumens, PIR (Passive Infrared) sensors allowing the lights to only operate when required and LED dimming down to 10% of the power consumption extending the operating time.
A compact new model, the SMC TL60 Solar, has also been developed with solar panels that easily fold into transport mode allowing 30 units to fit on a Euro trailer.
