Federal MANUAL on UNIFORM TRAFFIC CONTROL DEVICES (MUTCD) INFO / WORKSITE LIGHTING REQUIREMENTS:
Allmand recommends that you understand the minimum lighting conditions that are required for your application. Following are the 2009 Federal MUTCD (Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices) floodlighting requirements for highway construction projects.
MUTCD Section 6F.82 Floodlights
01 Utility, maintenance, or construction activities on highways are frequently conducted during nighttime periods when vehicular traffic volumes are lower. Large construction projects are sometimes operated on a double-shift basis requiring night work (see Section 6G.19).
02 When nightime work is being performed, floodlights should be used to illuminate the work area, equipment crossings, and other areas.
03 Except in emergency situations, flagger stations shall be illuminated at night.
04 Floodlighting shall not produce a disabling glare condition for approaching road user, flaggers, or workers.
05 The adequacy of the floodlight placement and elimination of potential glare should be determined by driving through and observing the floodlighted area from each directon on all approaching roadways after the initial floodlight setup, at night, and periodically.
06 Desired illumination levels vary depending upon the nature of the task involved. An average horizontal luminance of 5 foot candles can be adequate for general activities. Tasks requiring high levels of precision and extreme care can require an average horizontal luminance of 20 foot candles.
Allmand V-Series™ light towers
|Unlike conventional light towers, all four lights may be oriented straight down to illuminate the area immediately surrounding the trailer, providing significantly more light than balloon-style lighting with virtually no distracting glare. Allmand V-Series™ light towers are perfect for road construction, flagger stations, or any other task where worker safety, and the safety of the motoring public, is an issue.|
