 Light Towers, Portable Light Plants

Light towers are mobile light sources often used at construction sites and mines. Typically, an array of powerful lamps is mounted on a telescopic mast anchored to a highway-capable chassis, which houses a diesel or gasoline engine that drives a generator for supplying electricity to the lamps. Some light towers provide a battery option for silent operation.


The Tower Light is an inflatable, temporary lighting solution designed for use in lighting both large and confined areas.

CPLT V5+ HiLight is the company’s first LED light tower in the North American market, joining the CPLT V4 metal halide version in the product lineup.

The HiLight V4 and the LED HiLight V5+ light towers are lightweight, compact and feature the company’s exclusive HardHat canopy for rugged applications such as construction and road building.

CPLT V15 light tower is the company’s first model to feature a heavy-duty polyethylene canopy.

Allmand has expanded its current line of diesel light towers with the introduction of the Night-Lite NL5000 60Hz light tower.
