The best lighting and heating to hire for winter

Author Allan Tregear Calendar 2 November 2023

Winter is soon approaching, meaning the dark and cold temperatures will quickly affect sites and work spaces. As we move through the seasons, hiring essentials such as heating and lighting is vital in creating a safe and productive atmosphere for workers from morning to evening. 

Let’s discuss some of the lighting and heating equipment best suited for different work environments:


As natural light becomes scarce in the mornings and evenings, maintaining adequate on-site lighting ensures workers can operate efficiently and reduce the risk of accidents. At The Hireman, we supply a range of site lighting solutions that are effective and energy-efficient:

Due to its clever compact design, the Cordless Worklight is a fantastic solution if you are away from a power source or need a lightweight and portable light source. This small but mighty work light can brightly light up a space of up to 220m² with a 240° tilt for a more focused task.

The Wobble Light is a great first pick for those with outlets or power sources. This highly robust and versatile lighting system is designed with a self-righting ‘wobble’ base, making the lights difficult to knock over. You can also remove the lit tube from the base and use it as an inspection light. 

Where floor lighting may be a potential hazard on site, an alternative is high-level site lighting. Our LED Festoon Lighting is invaluable for providing consistent and widespread light, ensuring that every corner of a site is well-lit. With 25m of Arctic cable and a 110V power source requirement, the kits are easily movable or extendable as your project progresses. 

Floodlights are a popular choice due to their ability to illuminate large areas whilst being lightweight, versatile and efficient. Our Twin Low-Energy Floodlights are ideal for indoor and outdoor sites as their telescopic tripod makes it easy to orient and adjust precisely to your project needs.



Keeping sites comfortable for continued productivity is essential as we get into cold and dry winter months. We offer an array of heaters available for heating and drying, curated for various-sized rooms and locations:

With variable temperature control due to its built-in thermostat, our Industrial Fan Heaters are ideal for situations where operators are not stationary and warm air needs to be circulated throughout the space. Designed to not produce odours or humidity, the heater is ideal for indoor use.

A compact yet powerful option is the fan-assisted Propane Space Heater. With a height of 68cm and a reasonable weight of 13kg, this space heater is easy to move around and perfect for well-ventilated commercial and industrial premises to ensure all spaces are heated appropriately.

As the winter comes in, plastered walls and damp-affected areas will take longer to dry. The Infrared Heater is both robust and durable making it a brilliant choice for any site. Designed to provide directional infrared heat, users will have coverage of up to 6m. 

Compact heaters such as the convector heater and Portable Oil Radiator are the best choices for smaller spaces such as site offices and small to medium-sized rooms. Their slimline and compact design circulate warm air throughout rooms for instant relief.
