Southwire’s LED Jobsite Lighting Systems

We all know Southwire is the market leaders in electrical wiring and quickly becoming one of the biggest players in extension cords, electrical tools & equipment as well. Really it should not come as a shock to anyone that they are quickly becoming very strong in jobsite LED lighting as well. Their NEW energy saving, maintenance-free LED lighting systems provides electricians and contractors the performance they demand and expect. Take for instance, their LED String Lights system (7164SW, $116.87) (50′) or (7165SW, $207.87) (100′), each light is 800 lumens so 4000 and 8000 lumens respectively. Since these are LED you can daisy chain up to 1000′ together for a total of 80,000 lumens! Of course they do still have traditional light strings as well like the 100′ 7145SW ($59) which the price is right but

While their LED String Lights have proven to be effective for lighting large area, there are couple additional LED lighting systems worth noting for specific areas. First is their Temporary LED Low Bay Light T50078 ($) which will eventually replace the traditional 400W halide 7605SW ($93) all together. Includes a 3ft power cord and integral hook for a quick and easy install. Includes a frosted lens that will not only reduces glare, but also improves a beam angle. Produces over 8000 lumens while only consuming 78W…105 lumens per single watt. The LED technology provides over 50,000 hours of run time. This unit is sure to impress!

Finally, the 92W LED Tripod Work Light L1326SW ($199). This LED system provides over 6,000 lumens of task lighting, thousands of hours run time and is an extremely sturdy system. You won’t need many of these to light up a jobsite! The die cast housing and removable steel sled-base with an adjustable telescoping tripod are nice features on the unit. In using the LED technology, this unit provides consistent beams and a true representation of colors and detail in the workplace. Single head floor light with over 3,000 lumens L1325SW ($119) is also a good option but clearly the cost effective option will again be their traditional halogen 2 light rig L14SLEDSW ($49).
