Lighting or illumination is the deliberate use of light to achieve a practical or aesthetic effect. Lighting includes the use of both artificial light sources like lamps and light fixtures, as well as natural illumination by capturing daylight. Daylighting (using windows, skylights, or light shelves) is sometimes used as the main source of light during daytime in buildings. This can save energy in place of using artificial lighting, which represents a major component of energy consumption in buildings. Proper lighting can enhance task performance, improve the appearance of an area, or have positive psychological effects on occupants.

VIDEO – Bobcat Loaders: The Evolution of Tough

We started with just one product: a three-wheeled loader engineered by Cyril and Louis Keller. Shortly after, the revolutionary Bobcat skid-steer loader ignited the entire compact equipment industry.

And it all lead to the creation of M2-Series loaders.

With M2-Series loaders, you get: Reduced Drive Lever Effort Decreased Spills, Better Ride Optional

Lighting Options for Night Time Work on Construction Sites

Through his invention of the light bulb, Edison changed the world with a safer, brighter illumination. But it wasn’t long before incandescents—tungsten filament and gas-filled bulbs—surpassed the fragile carbons as the growing number of automobiles demanded better roads and better outdoor street lighting.
