Flush Mounted Lights Can Significantly Improve Waterline Security
Waterline security can be greatly improved by incorporating RSL flush mount luminaires to the RSL remote source lighting technology system configuration. RSL's hull embedded, flush-mounted lights effectively illuminate the waterline including hard to reach areas such as the spaces between hulls on a multi-hull ship. The lights can be permanently installed, eliminating the tedious and dangerous task of hanging portable waterline security lights. The light engine is located within the ship's interior, facilitating maintenance and increasing the light source longevity.
Permanently embedded installation reduces sailor workload and eliminates safety concerns.
