TowerLight, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of commercial mobile lighting towers, has launched a brand new product for the surveillance, CCTV and security markets.
The TL Security Tower will be officially unveiled at the forthcoming IFSEC International security exhibition set to be held at the NEC in May 2012. Utilising TowerLight’s considerable expertise in the worldwide mobile lighting sector, the TL Security Tower has been developed into a highly versatile mobile security system designed to accommodate CCTV cameras, Wi Fi systems, surveillance monitoring, infra-red detectors, evidence quality video equipment and public address loudspeakers.
The unit is entirely self-contained with power provided from a series of batteries combined with a built-in generator and an extended fuel tank for continuous operation. The hydraulically operated galvanised mast is wind tested to 110KM/H wind stability and extends to a maximum height of 5 metres. The mast is hand rotated through 340º for maximum visibility. Stability is secured via four adjustable outriggers, with two of the stabilisers fitted with additional shock absorbing capabilities to ensure complete stability when zooming or producing still images etc.
The TL Security Tower has been designed to suit a variety of applications; including passive infrared detectors, CCTV cameras – fixed or mobile – and is fitted with a 19” extractable rack module to accommodate up to 8 units. The complete unit is fitted onto a site tow trailer with a central lifting eye for safe loading and unloading.
TowerLight have equipped the TL Security Tower with a series of features that make it ideally suited for webcam and remote viewing, lock monitoring, fire alarm operation and traffic monitoring, on construction sites, storage areas, rail or port environments. The TL Security Tower will help guard against theft, vandalism and other forms of anti-social activities, whilst helping to secure property.
“We began designing the TL Security Tower following requests from the security industry to have a mobile surveillance system that would operate remotely from mains power, “explained Paul Hay, TowerLight’s UK director. “ The TL Security Tower is particularly useful to help prevent metal theft which is already a major problem in most towns and cities, we anticipate considerable growth in our security systems,” added Paul.
