Equipped with extendable stands, easy portability and environmentally friendly emissions-free design, they are ideal for any jobsite, but especially those outdoors after daylight hours. You can trust United Rentals to brighten your path with these balloon light rental options. For more information please visit our FAQs section below.

FAQs
FAQs
How does a balloon light work?

Like other lights, balloon lights consist of high-intensity light bulbs that create bright light. However, the translucent "balloon" surrounding the bulbs creates a softening effect, reducing the glare and direct shadows cast by exposed bulbs.

Are balloon lights better than light stands?

This depends on your work needs and the needs of your team members. Balloon lights are great for producing a soft but bright light that is less severe on the workers' eyesight. However, if you need a light source with more projectile power to cover larger areas, light stands may be the preferable option.

Are the balloons flammable?

Like any tool, balloon lights come with risks, including the risk of fire or explosion. The "balloons" should always be inflated with air or helium and never with highly flammable gases such as hydrogen. Bystanders should also stand clear of balloon lights at a safe distance during the inflation phase. We encourage you to contact a United Rentals specialist to ensure you understand the best practices if you are uncertain about utilizing balloon lights.
