Could this be the end of daylight saving?
So here we are, the clocks have gone back, my sleep app got completely confused and British Summertime is officially over.....the dark nights start here!!
Daylight saving swaps us between Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) in winter and British Summer Time (BST) in summer, meaning when the clocks go back in Autumn our evenings get darker earlier, unfortunately we don't have the luxury of finishing work earlier (insert sad face!!) So for those of us delivering, on callouts or in construction we need that extra light to find tools and stay safe!
This could only get more difficult if the EU succeed in stopping the clock changes across Europe, and despite the UK leaving the EU this will still affect us and could be as early as October 2019. Each member state will need to choose their timezone by April 2019. You can learn more about this here.
Whichever timezone we settle on here in the UK there's no reason to get caught out, preparation for lighting your load is key. Our strip lights and lighting kits are ideal for keeping your van in the BST timezone all year round! So with our extensive range of commercial vehicle lighting solutions we have you covered, don't forget Halloween is approaching this week so you don't want any tricks catching you out in the dark. So keep up to date by following our Facebook page.
So, our first blog post highlights an exciting time within the company!
We've recently partnered with 911 Signal, a company that is known worldwide for offering some of the very best vehicle lighting products. Our new ranges include the L270 corner beacon - the previous model has been used throughout the UK and Europe, mainly on telecommunication fleet vehicles. With just one of these lights you will gain 150° visibility while covering the four corners you would gain full 360° visibility, ideal for vehicles that have roof racks preventing the use of traditional lightbars/beacons. Although it might only be September now, the dark nights will soon be drawing in so these are going to be prefect for the winter months.
You can get more information here, the L270 corner beacons are available for pre-order now.
We now only deal in LED lighting products and 911 Signal are a great new partner with their wide range of LED lighting. With the EU ban on halogen lightbulbs, LED lighting options are a much more energy efficient alternative, with their extensive lifespan (lasting 40 times longer than average incandescent bulbs!!) and their lower power consumption, it seems the obvious choice.
