The self-inflating lighting balloons invented by LumiAir, particularly innovative, are composed of:
- A self-inflating outer envelope, made of technical fabric UV treated, reinforced with fiberglass to diffuse a soft glare-free light, omnidirectionally, volumetric 360° and without shadows.
- A compact lamp with high luminous flux, energy saving and equipped with a hot rebooting system allowing an immediate restart after a stop.
- Special materials for difficult working conditions: anti-vibration system, transparent outer arms (reinforcement of wind resistance), stainless steel screws …
Comparison of balloons with projectors or lighting towers
Projectors & Lighting Towers
Direct light: necessary to direct the headlamps towards the ground and to the working area: high level positioning (9m). Can not be used for horizontal lighting.
Fragility: significant risk of lamp breakage when moving the machine. The life of the lamps is reduced by the high temperature inside the device.
In case of sudden rain, the glass may crack due to the difference in temperature.
Punctual lighting: that brings a dazzling effect and important shadows.
Heavy weight: the devices are heavy to move and require at least one vehicle.
Long re-ignition time: waiting 5 to 15 minutes for the lighting of the lamps at 100%.
LumiAir Lighting Balloon
Volumetric light: no need to position the balloon very high (4-5m is enough): orientation of the light unnecessary.
Non-glare effect: the balloon can be used at any height, on the different levels of a building site.
Anti-vibration protection: light can be moved during operation (including installed on machines).
Permanent cooling: the device can be used when the outdoor temperature is high.
Regular light: no shadow or dark point created.
IP protection: no problem with rain, dust or sand.
Lightness: less than 150kg for an autonomous trolley equipped with balloon and diesel generator (for 4000m²).
Hot restart: immediately after the lamp goes out.
