When you think of Festool, the first thing to come to mind is probably that they make power tools of uncompromising quality. But the truth is that they manufacture far more than just power tools. They make just about anything you could ever need to get your job done. Today, we’d like to highlight one of our favorite Festool products: their SYSLITE DUO-Set work light.
The Importance of Illumination
Whatever your trade, we’re sure you’re already familiar with the importance of workplace illumination. More often than not, you are going to find yourself working at odd hours or in odd locations that compromise the quality of light.
And not just any light will do. A good work light does not compromise in terms of brightness, clarity, spread, and longevity. As they do in all of their products, Festool meets and exceeds these expectations with the SYSLITE DUO-Set.
Just How Bright Is It?
While there are many other factors that contribute to a truly great work light, all lights are measured by one thing in particular: illumination. If you’re not too familiar with the world of artificial light, we use a unit called the lumen to measure brightness. The SYSLITE DUO-Set is capable of emitting 8000 lumens.
It can be hard to communicate just how bright this really is. To give you a frame of reference, the high beams on your average vehicle emit just over 1000 lumens. So imagine having the brightness of eight high beams combined to light up your workplace.
The Right Kind of Light
But the SYSLITE DUO-Set isn’t just bright. It’s the perfect kind of light for working in. It has a color temperature of 5000 Kelvin, which is perfect for illuminating the fine details of whatever surfaces you might be working on.
How about the light’s spread? It diffuses its light evenly across 180 degrees. This means that it can illuminate half a room, and without a noticeable ‘bright spot’ in the middle like so many other artificial lights.
This Light Will Last
A great work light like the SYSLITE DUO-Set wouldn’t be worth the price tag without outstanding durability to boot. You can rest assured that your Festool work light will serve you for many years to come. To start with the LED itself, Festool estimates that it will provide you with 10,000 hours of illumination in the field.
The SYSLITE DUO-Set itself can take quite a beating. It has an IP 55 rating to protect itself from dust, water, and even heat. It’s highly resistant to shock, too. Combine this durability with outstanding portability, and it’s easy to see what makes the SYSLITE DUO-set worth adding to your gear.
