Sunbelt adds more Trime solar lights

Sunbelt Rentals has invested in no fewer than 300 additional solar-powered lighting towers from Trime to meet growing demand for emission-free equipment. 

The X-Solar machines are designed to provide emission-free lighting 365 days a year in all conditions, as well as ease of operation and low maintenance.

The machine has four 60W energy-saving LED lamps fitted to a galvanised 8.5m mast and can illuminate an area of 2000 sq m. Its compact dimensions mean that four units can be loaded onto a single truck, reducing traffic movements and emissions. 

As of January 2023, Sunbelt Rentals UK and Ireland had more than 2,000 Trime lighting towers in its lighting fleet, comprising X-Chain, X-Hybrid Solar, X-Hybrid, and X-Eco models These latest X-Solar additions will be deployed on construction sites and outside events throughout the UK and Ireland. 

The move reinforces Sunbelt’s commitment to its Our Planet environmental action plan.

Dave Harris, Sunbelt Rentals’ Sales and Marketing Director, said: “This investment highlights the commitment that Sunbelt Rentals is making to provide our customers with equipment that is not only built for purpose, but is also helping reduce emission outputs and the impact on our planet.”
