At Light Knights, safety is our number one priority. We have taken extensive steps to ensure teams have the proper equipment and our designers and installers are thoroughly trained. The result is a safe, timely and professional Christmas Light install.
Proper care and careful planning in regards to power sources and electrical flow must be taken for a safe Christmas lighting install. Improper circuit loads can cause overheating and in extreme cases, fires. That’s why our team has been trained in electrical flow and know how many lights can be run off a single power source, and when to use multiple sources.
Additionally, we have trained our staff extensively on the safe and proper use of ladders, ladder arms, fall protection (harnesses, anchor points, etc…) and extension poles.
Some common safety issues to be aware of when having us work on your home or business:
– If power lines are present we must work at a safe working distance of greater than 9’ and for higher power lines, 20’-30’.
– If your home has high peaks and unstable/uneven ground that eliminate the ability to use a ladder, we will have to use fall protection which will increase the cost of installation. Often times we can make use of trees/shrubs rather than high peaks and still have a fantastic installation.
– For high traffic locations we will use reflective vests, cones, and caution tape to block off working areas. This will be a slight nuisance for your patrons but a much better option than having liability issues with people walking under working ladders, poles, and lifts.
