Welcome to Michigan Carp!
The Michigancarp blog specializes in new and exciting developments related to boat lights, marine lighting systems and industrial fixtures.
Boat lights are exposed to a plethora of unpredictable elements in the ocean. Without proper protection, saltwater corrosion can damage luminaries and lead to premature failure. Furthermore, the units should be waterproof in order to thrive at sea. Because of these rough elements, marine lights are designed with heavy-duty parts. Corrosion-resistant materials that are capable of standing up to saltwater are used. Entry points are sealed with rubber components to deter the ingress of foreign contaminants. In addition to corrosion resistant lights for boats, marine operators may also benefit from vapor proof luminaries. This type of protection provides a sealed unit for use in wet locations.
Complying with the latest USCG regulations, navigation lights must be used for certain vessels, depending on the body of water. For such lighting systems, LEDs offer compact installations in tight spaces and long-term performance, allowing operators to focus on other parts of the boat, such as steering. For monitoring during nighttime conditions, powerful LED light bars or handheld spotlights are recommended. With tight and dense beam configurations, the units are capable of illuminating objects at great distances. These type of boat lights are typically low voltage (12V or 24V DC) or battery powered.
At busy docks in marine locations, portable light towers can be used to illuminate the entire area. For elevated lighting, light towers can be raised between 12’-85’, depending on the needs of the location. The units are compatible with fuel and solar-powered generators, catering to remote locations and docks without access to mainstream power. Portable marine lights are useful for detailed tasks, such as site repairs, loading/unloading and more. To make the luminaries easier to transport around the site, the units are equipped with solid wheels and handles.
