Labcraft, designer and manufacturer of low-voltage LED lighting for commercial vehicles, is presenting a range of innovative lighting solutions at this year’s Road Transport Expo (RTX), including new additions to its popular Banksman range.

The company’s best-selling line is the Banksman ECE-R23 vehicle manoeuvring light that meets the strict criteria of Regulation 23. It is offered in multiple models to fit any truck, trailer and emergency vehicle.

The Banksman enables OEMs and operators to meet Regulation 48 directives for lights installed pre-vehicle registration.

Lights are fitted around the chassis to direct pure bright light downwards and away from the vehicle, illuminating the area around it and helping to reduce accidents and collisions whilst manoeuvring. Labcraft said this can improve safety, reduce repair costs and cut insurance premiums.

The Banksman can also be retrofitted to existing fleets and is ideal for illuminating any vehicle or trailer, working well with low-set bodywork and most types of ancillary loading equipment, such as column or tuck-away tail-lifts.

Labcraft also offers a range of bright innovative lights to illuminate both external work areas and internal spaces and meet health and safety guidelines for workplace lighting.

Available in several specifications and with various outputs and current draw options, Labcraft lights can be fitted to numerous vehicles including the latest EV vehicles, for which light efficiency and efficacy is particularly relevant.

For specific applications, Labcraft offers bespoke in-house design services to fleets, OEMs, and converters seeking to improve work safety, increase productivity and improve manufacturing efficiencies.  

Aimed at temperature-controlled vehicles, including box vans and refrigerated trailers, Labcraft also manufactures a range of lighting solutions designed to cope with extreme conditions, as low as minus 30 degrees.  The lights are waterproof, and R10 approved, they can be surface-mounted or recessed into most vehicle bodies and are engineered to suit a broad range of vehicles and voltages to provide a consistent light output.

Labcraft is committed to protecting the environment through green manufacturing and carbon off-set activities. The Labcraft factory has a solar power system and is fitted with a biomass boiler to reduce emissions.

The Labcraft team will be at the RTX show on stand R17 at NAEC Stoneleigh, from 28-30 June. Book your free ticket today!
