After almost a decade of lighting Australian highways and 4WD tracks, Great Whites has released its biggest light yet.
Aptly named the 250 Series, the round LED driving light boasts a massive 250mm face and is designed to suit the needs of long-haul truck drivers looking for more light and improved visibility in poor weather conditions.
In a first for Great Whites, the 250 Series features an integrated amber bar and lights to help drivers see in poor conditions including fog, dust and even grain on farms.
Merchandise manager for lighting Luke Bolton says he can’t wait to see these lights in action on Australian roads. “The 250 Series is designed to take pride of place on the country’s biggest vehicles, improving visibility in all conditions and lighting over 1km ahead with each pair,” he said.
“These larger faced lights will reduce the need for so many forward-facing lights on trucks, with fewer, high powered driving lights doing the trick. Best of all they don’t look out of place in front of huge radiators and chunky bull bars,” he said.
Each light houses 24 high-powered LEDS capable of operating in both 12 and 24V vehicles. The new 250 Series puts on a show with 10,300 effective white lumens and 700 effective amber lumens, and it’s available in a black or alloy finish to suit your vehicle.
Lighting product manager Barry Lillis says when buying driving lights, quality should be heavily considered. “There are much cheaper lights on the market, but they’re cheaper for a reason. When your livelihood depends on those lights working, they’re nothing you should scrape on,” he said.
Recent reports have stated 38 per cent of all fatal accidents occur at night and 14.6 per cent of all road crash deaths involve articulated trucks or heavy rigid trucks, meaning visibility is a key factor in keeping drivers safe.
The 250 Series is just one part of the Great Whites Attack range, with the 170 Series, 220 Series and bars also available to light the way for your vehicle. With a three-year warranty behind every Great Whites Attack light, visit greatwhites.com.au or your local NAPA Auto Parts for more information.
