design matters.
we have the awards to prove it.

Design Matters. This is a credo that we live by when we think of our new products.

Too often today, manufacturers of industrial products, especially in the lighting industry, seem willing to accept whatever designs they are shown by their overseas suppliers.  Inevitably, these products just end up being small tweaks to tired old designs.  We believe that good design can and should be brought to bear in the industrial lighting market.  The result are products that fill needs our users may not even know they had with products that offer the durability and usability required for tough workplaces.

 
 

Beacon LED TOwer wins 2018 pro tool innovation award

Lind Equipment’s Beacon LED Tower has received the 2018 Pro Tool Innovation Awards in the commercial site lighting category. A panel of judges made up of tool and media professionals from across the United States and Canada weighed in on entries from top global manufacturers.

The Beacon LED Tower began with a simple question.  What if a light tower was designed by a lighting company, not a generator company?

The answer is a light tower that fully embraces the latest in energy LED lighting technology to be lighter, more portable, and vastly more efficient than the alternatives.  One that can be moved around in the back of a pickup truck and maneuvered by a single individual.  One that can replace a 4,000 Watt, diesel fuel burning, 2,000lb tow-behind tower with a man portable one that uses just 20% of the energy to produce the same amount of light and can be simply plugged into a socket or run off a generator the size of a suitcase.

 

Beacon120 led highbay finalist in 2018 pro tool innovation awards

Lind Equipment’s Beacon120 LED Highbay has been named a finalist for the 2018 Pro Tool Innovation Awards in the temporary site lighting category. A panel of judges made up of tool and media professionals from across the United States and Canada weighed in on entries from top global manufacturers.

High output LED lights have always required two components – an LED array and a bulky, heavy power supply that provides electricity to drive the array.  The need for these two components has driven LED fixture design throughout the history of the technology. 

The Beacon 120 Highbay changes this equation by utilizing state of the art technology to eliminate the need for an external driver.  As a result, the Beacon 120 is able to provide all the same light output as the models it replaces in a much more compact package, all while eliminating a major component (the driver) which can be prone to failure. 

The Beacon 120 weighs just 2.6 pounds and is only 2 inches thick compared to competitive products that weigh nearly 10lbs, are over 8 inches thick and need 25% MORE wattage to generate the same amount of light. 

Put simply, the Beacon 120 is easier to transport, easier to install, more energy efficient and more durable than anything else on the market today.

LIND EQUIPMENT PRESIDENT AWARDED CANADA'S 2018 CLEAN50 FOR LED JOBSITE SUCCESS

Lind Equipment is proud to announce that its President, Mr. Brian Astl, is the recipient of Canada’s 2018 Clean50 award for his work in driving the success of Lind Equipment’s proprietary LED Jobsite system of LED lights for the construction industry.

Brian has been the leader of the LED Jobsite system since its founding in 2015.  His leadership and vision has created a product that is changing the face of construction site lighting.  To date, the LED Jobsite system has empowered contractors across Canada and the US to save over 58M kWh of electricity, 32,000 kg of waste, and 41,000 metric tons of CO2E.  Additionally, the LED Jobsite system has saved countless hours of labor and dollars of materials.

The proprietary LED Jobsite system provides all temporary lighting for a construction site, from portable area lighting to room lighting to crane lighting.  The high-efficiency LED lights are easy to install, maintain and move as the project evolves over time.  When compared to traditional bulb-based lighting, the LED Jobsite can reduce electricity consumption by up to 90%.  In addition, the LED Jobsite lights are robust enough to be used again and again, which is in strong contrast to traditional bulb-based lighting which is generally thrown out at the end of a single project.

“Canada’s Clean50 Awards are announced annually by Delta Management Group and the Clean50 organization to recognize those 50 individuals or small teams, from 16 different categories, who have done the most to advance the cause of sustainability and clean capitalism in Canada over the past 2 years,” said Gavin Pitchford, CEO, Delta Management Group.
