Uneven ground and low light are a bad combination for any vehicle. This is pretty obvious when it’s a dirt trail being traversed by an ATV, but a truck handling a job on a deteriorating pavement after dark has a lot to risk too. Putting extra light on the road ahead can reduce the danger involved considerably. That’s where additional lighting like the Shanren 42” Curved Light Bar comes in. It offers the perfect compromise between size and power. At just 42” long, it can fit on any vehicle or watercraft and leave room to spare, but it still supplies more than enough brightness to cut through darkness, rain, snow, or any other barrier to a clear view of your route.
Instead of relying on a few high-intensity bulbs, the Shanren 42” Curved Light Bar uses 80 individual LED lights arranged in two lines of 40 to create an evenly dispersed glow that spans the entire forward area with no weak spots. With a combined output of 19,200 lumens, these bulbs also penetrate deeper into the night than the average headlights that only produce one-sixth as much light at best. This same luminosity make this light bar easy to spot at a distance, so there’s far less chance of collision if multiple vehicles are close by.
Compact and Efficient
The Epistar LED at the heart of this fixture consumes just three watts of juice. Each LED light is mounted in its own compartment and backed with a carefully designed reflector that redirects 97% of its output for the highest possible efficiency. Altogether, the Shanren 42” Curved Light Bar burns a mere 240 watts with a mass of only around 12.5 pounds while providing spotlight and floodlight features.
The aluminum housing of this light bar offers protection against the elements, but the durability doesn’t end there. A coating of UV-resistant paint provides additional shielding. Likewise, the lens covers are UV resistance too. Its tight-fitting parts give the Shanren 42” Curved Light Bar a waterproof score of IP68. This means everything from driving rain to splashing mud won’t find their way inside. A pair of swiveling mounting brackets complete the device. With all this coverage, it’s a pretty good bet the LED lights will reach their 50,000 hour lifespan.
