Australian sales and rental firm PR Power has supplied a Tower Light PR4000 to assist with renovation works at the Margaret Court Arena, the venue for the Australian Open Tennis tournament.

The venue was fitted with 1500 new seats and a state-of-the art retractable roof in readiness for the 2015 tennis championship.

As some of the work was being undertaken outside of daylight hours, the contractors needed safe, bright lighting to illuminate the total working area.

The contractor contacted Tower Light’s Australian dealer, PR Power, to help provide a solution. After surveying the site, PR Power recommended a Tower Light PR4000 lighting set, fitted with a 360° balloon.

The PR4000 is a variant of Tower Light’s flagship VT1 product fitted with a balloon lighting envelope. The balloon lighting utilises 4x 1000w Metal Halide lamps and produces 360° glare free light. The lamps are housed inside a heavy-duty balloon envelope, which helps to protect the lamps from possible damage.

The PR4000 has a 9-metre 360° vertical hydraulic mast with single lever operation, enabling one person to safely erect the mast in less than 30 seconds.
