New Multi-colour Head Torch just released by NARVA is fun and also very handy for finding stuff in the dark.
The NARVA Rechargeable Head Torch stands out from run-of-the-mill torches with its powerful white, green and red L.E.D lights.
“It’s not only fun, the new torch is ideal for leisure activities including boating, plus DIY and workshop applications, due to the advantages provided by the additional colours, along with the convenience of keeping both hands free,” says Tim Paterson, National Sales Manager of NARVA distributor, Griffiths Equipment Ltd.
Courtesy of two COB L.E.D’s, the head torch produces a 180 Lumens flood beam light that provides a 120-degree beam angle. A secondary arc-shaped COB L.E.D also provides the option of lower intensity (120 Lumens) flood beam for when less light is required.
Additionally, the head torch is equipped with a spotlight function that provides 150 Lumens of output, delivering strong illumination up to 60 metres away.
Other benefits of this new light include red (620nm) and green (520nm) light functions for added versatility.
Greenlight at 520nm is an ideal wavelength for the human eye as our eyes are most sensitive to green light, making it perfect for navigating and map reading in the dark. Greenlight also provides a high illumination value without causing the user to lose their night vision.
For hunting activities, greenlight is also preferable because most animals are not sensitive to it, allowing the wearer to light up a field without disturbing game as a white light would and the same holds true for fishing pursuits. Other benefits include better cut-through in foggy conditions, greater penetration (compared to red beam) and attracting fewer insects.
For the crash repair industry, green L.E.D lighting is ideal for detecting paint imperfections, making the lamp useful in some workshop applications.
Some of the benefits of green light are applicable to the red light as well, including for hunting and navigation. Red light is also widely used for night-time marine, signage and photography.
The red light is ideal for close-quarters camping as well, as it’s not as bright as white light and less likely to disturb neighbouring campers. Also, red L.E.D’s emit less heat than their white counterparts, making them more efficient and providing up to two or three times longer run time.
Red light is the universal signal for attention, so in the case of an emergency, the SOS function on the head torch can flash on and off making it more noticeable to rescuers.
Other clever features of the NARVA head torch are the magnetised lamp base that can be easily removed from the comfortable, fully adjustable helmet clip headband to provide extra versatility for the lamp to be used separately.
The lamp is also motion-activated, making it more convenient for the wearer to operate on the move or if they have their hands full. There is no need to physically touch the lamp and finding the unit when it’s turned off is easy as it features a glow in the dark locator and there is also a brightness memory function.
For added performance indoors or outdoors, the head torch is dust and water-resistant to IP65 and charging is fast and efficient with the included 240V USB charging lead.
The new NARVA Rechargeable Head Torch is part of the ALS (Advanced Lighting Systems) range of products that feature smart and useful technologies for workshop, trade and leisure uses. Covered by a 2-year warranty the new head torch is available from leading automotive outlets throughout New Zealand.
