LENTRY All Terrain Scene Lighting - Portable Generator Lights with Legs - Home

Height: Choose Standard, XT, or Hi-Lite

Dimensions are approximate.

On LENTRY Systems, you choose the height of the telescoping polelights. All LENTRY polelights are available in standard height or extra tall XT. Most FRC polelights are also available as Hi-Lites.

By the way, we call our lights “polelights” because the light head and pole are connected. FRC light heads may be separated from the pole using tools, which helps save on shipping, but the ABC light heads are permanently attached. The polelights do come out of the light base, for transport and storage separate from the rest of the unit.

Standard Height

“Standard” is our nice way of saying “short.”

LENTRY Units with standard height polelights stand about 4.5 feet (56 inches) with legs and polelights fully extended.

Standard height lights are often left connected at all times because they are so compact. Lights fold foward, to the side, or over the top to accomodate different storage spaces.

XT Height

“XT” stands for “eXtra Tall.”

LENTRY Units with XT polelights stand about 8.5 to 9 feet tall with the legs and polelight fully extended.

With just the legs extended and the polelight down all the way, XT units are still about five and a half feet tall, as shown in Picture 6.

Custom Height “Hi-Lite”

Any of our FRC polelights may be special-ordered as Hi-Lites.

Picture 10: This 13-foot light is tall even when it is retracted! It is probably not a good light for those who are vertically challenged!

Lead time is four weeks but the price is not much higher.

LENTRY Systems with FRC Hi-Lites will stand 13 feet tall, with legs and lights fully extended. The minimum height of the polelight by itself would still be approximately 6 feet long.

At left are custom height LENTRY Units for a customer in the Oregon DOT who needed lighting for flaggers that stood 13 feet high. It has a 650W FRC polelight. James is 6'-2". We would not recommend extending it to its full height in a windstorm, but it is quite stable because of the LENTRY Legs’ wide footprint. This unit proved so valuable to the first customer that we now offer this option on LENTRY Scene Lighting Units with FRC 650W and LED Polelights. (We do not offer Hi-Lites with the 2-Headed FRC Light Head, as it is too heavy to be practical.)

Please note: Hi-Lites are so tall—even when they are not extended—that they may take two people, one really tall person, or a person and a step ladder to set up!

→ Picture 12: While trying to take photos of the Hi-Lite, Joan who is 5'-8" tall, was unable to set up the Hi-Lite by herself. Ken helped her, and opted to use a step stool. Ken is over 6' tall.


Hi-Lites are so tall, you may need a second person, a tall person, or a step stool to set them up.

Side by Side: All Heights

LENTRY Units with Dual and Triple polelights (separate telescoping polelights held by dual or triple light bases), can show the relative sizes well.

Pictures 13-15 show LENTRY Units with the EU2000i generator and Dual 650W ABC polelights, one standard and one XT. Pictures 16 and 17 show a LENTRY Unit with the EU2000i generator and triple FRC polelights, one of each height.

The higher the better, if you have the space

The taller the better for scene lighting (flagger lighting, too). The drawback of taller lights are that they take more storage space and weigh a bit more. (Hi-Lites are so tall they are also challenging to set up, so should only be chosen in special cases where very tall lighting is needed.) In general, the higher the light source, the better for illuminating large areas and greater distances. In their stability (thanks to the legs) even as the lights are raised 9 feet and higher, LENTRY Systems can better illuminate large areas than low-sitting conventional generator sets.

The same LENTRY System is shown in both photos at right, with the light aimed directly forward. The light is down in the lower picture and up in the upper picture. With the light down, it is similar in height to that of a standard height unit, showing the difference in light quality between varying heights.
