Uplight v2 : 2007 Design Week Awards Best Industrial Product
Designed for the professional tradesman the Uplight is a completely unique self-righting lighting system. FSW carried out research on how worklights are used in real site situations. The feedback was for an easily directed light with a highly robust construction.
Uplight consists of a weighted rotationally moulded base and detachable light stick. This provides huge versatility with multiple location positions always ensuring the light is directed to exactly the right place. Most work light failure is caused by impact damage to the vulnerable bulb. The Uplight base ensures the unit can never be knocked over and so provides unparalleled protection to the bulb and levels of durability.
