Lighting and Electric Vehicles

Predictions are that the electric vehicle revolution in off highway industries is set to continue at a rapid pace. This quiet take over has many OE manufacturers racing to be the leading force in this new field of equipment. Particularly in the mining sector where noisy, polluting diesel engines can massively impact an already unpleasant […]

Safety First

The process of equipping industrial vehicles with the most appropriate warning lighting isn’t straightforward. As more vehicles are introduced into working spaces such as warehouses or ports, safety of pedestrians and other users become more of a concern. Protecting lives and reducing risk of injury is paramount to any material handing situation. There are many […]

Autonomous Vehicles & Lighting

In a technological world, where automation is leading the charge. What impact does this have on vehicle design and lighting? As technology and automation becomes more common, we will see, in the not too distant future, autonomous vehicles making more of an impact in the Off Highway industries. Automatic cars are already hitting the headlines […]

Four Tips for Good Lighting
