Mon Nov 20, 2017

151119581518564.jpgTecNiq has introduced a new compact D30 Surface Mounted Load Light, designed to provide more security around the doors of a trailer.

The new light provides 2,000 lumens of bright white LED light, illuminating 150 square-feet from a height of 10 feet. Built to work, it's ideal for semi-trailers, box trucks, RV toy haulers and other vehicles and trailers with loading ramps.

Balancing power and illumination area is key with any lighting solution. The light’s 64-degree by 51-degree beam angle from 13.5 feet up brightens a space over 16 feet wide and 12 feet deep.

IP68 rated, the D30 is completely dust and waterproof. Its aluminum heat sink housing is powder-coated black for years of attractive service. The LED light includes a form-fitting TPE gasket that's UV- and chemical-resistant. It has a maximum draw of 1.3–1.9 amps.

The D30 has a small footprint so it'll fit almost anywhere. It measures at 7.4 inches long by 1.62 inches wide and 1.76 inches tall and mounts with two screws on 6.375-inch centers.

MSRP for the D30 Surface Mounted Load Light is $115.
