A new LED dock light from Rite-Hite incorporates its flex neck technology to offer enhanced flexibility and adjustability when lighting a trailer at the loading dock, the company said.
The Flex Neck LED dock light features a multi-articulating arm made from molded nylon links. The links offer multiple bend points for increased flexibility and the bend points can be easily modified in the field to address unique needs, or obstructions that may be encountered at a dock opening.
“There has been very little innovation in LED dock lights since they were initially introduced a few years ago,” said Andy Olson, marketing manager for Rite-Hite. “We wanted to bring something new to the market that addresses the unique demands found at the loading dock.”
The light features four different settings with visual indicators to identify the current level of lighting. In addition, an optional, auto-dimming feature senses when a forklift or person exits a trailer and automatically dims the light to reduce glare. The dimming feature also reduces the light output to its lowest setting when there has been no activity in the trailer for more than 30 minutes.
The Rite-Hite Flex Neck LED dock light incorporates an aluminum-cast, impact-resistant head designed to take incidental impacts from forklifts and overhead doors. It uses CREE LEDs that consume just 18 watts of energy while outputting 925 lumens. The light is rated for 175,200 hours of service life.
