A Guide to Portable Temporary LED Lighting Fixtures

There are many important roles that portable lighting plays in commercial, industrial and residential circumstances. When you can't install permanent lighting, portable temporary LED lighting fixtures are the go-to lighting solution.

Reliable portable temporary lighting fixtures are essential on construction sites. OSHA calls out the critical job that temporary lighting has to ensure the safety of workers at night, particularly in road construction.

So what, exactly, are portable temporary LED lighting fixtures? We'll answer this question and discuss the benefits and applications of temporary work lights. And when you need temporary job site lighting, we'll discuss why Warehouse-Lighting.com is your best bet.

What Are Portable LED Work Lights?

Portable temporary lighting fixtures are used for applications where there is a need for quick and easy installation of lighting that's not intended for permanent use. These fixtures allow for quick setup in emergency situations.

Portable temporary LED lighting fixtures have many uses and offer a number of advantages:

  • Lightweight: It's easy to put the light where you need it and move it from one worksite to another. All the temporary fixtures are easily packable for portability and relocation. They can be moved from application to application. Once the need is over, the lights can be packed and stored or be converted back to permanent fixtures if desired.
  • Energy-Efficient: An LED temporary work light enjoys energy efficiency. It has a very low amp draw leaving more available from the source (a generator or battery, for example). This also means energy savings and reduced operating and maintenance costs.
  • Cooler: LED temporary lights don't produce as much heat as other equivalent fixtures.
  • Durable: Portable temporary LED lights are durable, especially the UFO style. The Saturn 1, Mars and Aries series are built with die-cast aluminum bodies with integrated heat-sinks to increase efficiency and extend the life of their internal components. These are ruggedly designed with tempered glass lenses and certified for wet locations.
  • Powerful: Sturdy and bright, temporary lights are ideal for illuminating large areas, indoors or outdoors.

Where LED Temporary Lights Are Used

Temporary commercial lighting provides effective illumination in any situation where permanent lighting isn't viable. There are many practical applications for temporary light fixtures, including:

  • Healthcare: LED portable lighting is often used in temporary structures such as tents where a quick and rapid response to an emergency is necessary, such as a triage setting. These lights can also be fitted with a plug and be used in locations that may need extra illumination for a short time.
  • Construction: Temporary lighting is a necessity for road crews and construction sites to ensure worker safety.
  • Emergency Automotive Repair: Tow trucks and other road assistance vehicles benefit from the powerful beam of portable lighting in situations where electrical power is inaccessible.

The Different Types of Temporary Lighting Fixtures

There are many different types of temporary lighting fixtures that are used depending on the application and environment of their respective locations.

  • High Bay Lights: These fixtures are used for applications where lighting needs to be placed at 20-45 feet in height. The lights are powerful enough to illuminate large spaces where the light needs to be projected down and out towards the ground. They can be mounted using hooks, chains or cables.
  • LED Flat Panels: Flat panel fixtures have integrated LED arrays that spread light down and out towards the ground. They can be mounted from a ceiling by chains or cables.
  • Portable Lights: Durable portable lights are typically used for indoor or outdoor applications where power sources are hard to come by or installation is difficult. They include flood lights, string lights, dock light fixtures, magnetic lights and hanging lights. In some cases, they are battery-powered and can be easily moved to different locations.

Frequently Asked Questions About Portable LED Lighting

Here are some of the many questions that have been asked about temporary LED lighting applications.

What Is the Best Indoor LED Temporary Lighting?

If your application calls for temporary lighting indoors, the Condor series is ideal for lighting large areas incredibly efficiently. If you need less powerful, but still efficient light, look at the flat panel fixtures. These fixtures can be pendant-hung for ease of installation and movement. They offer reduced glare light and warmer lighting options. We have these fixtures in stock and ready to be shipped from our Milwaukee, WI warehouse.

Can Portable Work Lights be fitted with plugs?

These fixtures can have plugs installed. Depending on the need, the fixture can have a 120-volt straight blade plug or a 277-volt twist cord plug installed.

What are the benefits of LED Portable Temporary Lighting?

LED lighting technology has a distinct advantage over other alternatives when it comes to Temporary Lighting:

  • Lighting quality is superior in terms of color rendering, color temperature and lumen output (compared to wattage used).
  • They have a longer lifespan, use less energy, produce less heat and have a very low amp draw. This can be of critical importance in a temporary lighting situation, especially if batteries or generators are used as a power source.
  • The fixtures are relatively light weight and can be easily moved, especially when fitted with the appropriate plug.
  • When the temporary need has abated, the lights can be quickly and easily converted back to permanent fixtures if desired.
