General Questions

FAQ 1
We do manufacture and sell the MoonGlo Light Tower. This is designed to hold your 2000 to 3000 watt generator. We also manufacture and sell a conversion bar piece with balloon lights that you attach to your own light tower (of nearly any make or model), to convert your own lighting equipment into a glare-free highly efficient and illuminating balloon work lighting system. Both systems can be LED or Metal Halide. Please call for more information.

The light bulb used in the MoonGlo Balloon Light is the same used in almost all light towers... 1000 watt metal halide, Model BT-37 which should be readily available at most wholesale electrical supplies. We also have MoonGlo LED Lights available.

FAQ 4
That really depends how the balloon light covers are taken care of.  As far as direct weather exposure, we had one customer who had MoonGlo Balloon Lights 24/7 for 54 months out on a temporary road on the San Francisco Bay.  High winds, cold fog and rain. They didn't need new covers until the end of that period, and then off to another job on the bay!

FAQ 6
Our MoonGlo balloon light envelope was designed with the top fabric being a high temp aluminized Mylar on the inside specifically used for its reflective qualities. This top fabric caps off the light and reflects the lighting illumination down to the ground. The MoonGlo balloon light design also reduces light pollution into the atmosphere. The bottom fabric is thin enough to allow maximum light through as a work light yet is thick enough to diffuse and minimize any light glare.
