EPCO’s alternative solution increases energy efficiency while reducing labor costs

Engineered Products Company (EPCO), a supplier of specialty lighting and wiring consumable products for electrical contractors, launched an alternative solution to lamp-based string lighting for temporary construction lighting applications. EPCO’s LED CordLight reduces labor costs and increases energy efficiency, providing a brilliant lighting option that will positively impact bottom lines.string lighting

Currently, lamp-based string lighting is a standard on the construction site, but the labor-intensive installation and need to stock and replace dead lamps makes it an expensive solution. Now, users can save money in labor, material, and energy costs by switching to LED lighting.

“From construction sites to outdoor markets or special events, our LED CordLight is the best option for any temporary lighting need,” said Engineered Products Company President Jim Anderson. “Whether we are reducing labor or energy costs, or simply providing a brilliant light that works in any environment, our LED CordlLight is built with our customer in mind.”

The LED CordLight is a more cost-effective solution compared with traditional lamp-based string lights. Each LED Module produces excellent 5000K white light with a minimal power draw. The LED CordLight is installed with a carabiner coupling link and there are no lamps to replace, which contributes to a labor savings. Contractors can also move the LED CordLight to a new job site, which is something lamp-based string lighting cannot offer.

The LED CordLight is constructed of heavy-duty 18/2 SJTW round cord and IP65 weather-resistant LED modules that resist dust and rain, making it suitable for both wet and dry locations.

The commercial grade, high-power LEDs offer a beam angle of 120°, to increase versatility. It’s available in 50′ or 100′ lengths and is linkable to other LED CordLights, allowing users to extend lights up to 500′. The LED CordLight is ETL listed and complies with UL Standard 153 for portable electric luminaires.

“In the past, contractors would have to dedicate so much time and energy to install lamp-based lighting, only to throw the product away after the job was completed and pay exorbitant energy bills because of the high power draw,” said Allen Guidry, Product Manager, Engineered Products Company. “Now, contractors can easily install EPCO’s LED CordLight. Plus the quick set up and tear down means they can reuse it on future job sites, and we know they’ll see the cost savings in energy consumption.”
