Truck-Lite Co. Inc. said it introduced a new concept in interior trailer and truck lighting. The patent-pending LED Super Strip-Lite, now available with a replaceable lens, uses light-emitting diodes (LEDs) evenly spaced on a fabricated aluminum channel.
Four-foot strips use 12 diodes, while two foot strips have six diodes. Both have diodes spaced every four inches. The lightweight LED Super Strip-Lites are available in two styles, shaped either for mounting flat or into corners. They can be mounted almost anywhere, but are most effective in corners, evenly spaced on roof interiors or, in vocational trucks, along horizontal or vertical shelf and cabinet surfaces, the company said.
Each 6-diode strip draws only 0.7 amps, the company said. The 12-diode strips draw 1.4 amps. Each strip covers a broad area, to provide even lighting with minimal shadows. White LED lighting is brighter and whiter than other forms of interior trailer lighting, so colors are truer and freight labels are easier to read, the company said. This helps eliminate errors in securing product, selecting items and filling out paperwork.
LED lighting is designed to be rugged, lightweight, durable and reliable. This new product line has all the benefits of LED safety lighting with minimal intrusion into cargo or workspaces, the company said. That helps avoid damage from loading equipment. Truck-Lite Super Strip-Lite also saves an average of 3 pounds per lamp in a typical installation compared to fluorescent lighting products.
The company said all LED Super Strip-Lite offer these benefits: replaceable lenses for easy maintenance and customization; brighter, more even lighting for safer, easier, accurate and efficient work; a low profile that minimizes intrusion into cargo or workspaces and reduces damage; rugged aluminum construction that improves durability and reliability, and minimizes damage; easy mounting using predrilled holes; modular design that makes retrofit or replacement quick and easy; light weight that maximizes cargo; all the benefits of Truck-Lite’s LED line; and Truck-Lite’s exclusive limited lifetime warranty.
