FAQs About Light Strings

United Rentals carries a wide variety of string light options, including construction string lights, string work lights and LED string work lights. String lights provide much-needed illumination, allowing workers to work safely and efficiently, and are used for jobs that involve open wiring. String lights are directly connected to a transmission source, eliminating the hazards regular light bulbs offer. Our selection includes outdoor string work lights designed to hang separately from the source, making them a great choice for any task involving wiring or repairs. We also offer both 5-head and 8-head explosion-proof string lights, commonly used in oil refineries, chemical plants and food processing industries. Manufacturers include leading brands like Larson Electronics and more. Learn more about string lights in our FAQ section below.

FAQs
What is the difference between string lights and droplights?

Droplights and string lights are very similar but have a few differences. The primary difference is that most droplights have a single bulb, while string lights use several, hung over a distance, to create more lighting power.

Can string lights be used outdoors?

Yes, string lights can be used outdoors. There are several types of string lighting solutions manufactured for outdoor use. They are ideal for lighting areas over short distances, like a fence line or small work area, and can withstand the elements, guaranteeing maximum efficiency.

How do I install construction string lights?

To install string lights, first connect wiring to stabilizing poles or posts spanning the desired distance. The wiring is attached to the post at opposite ends using a metal fastener to pull it just enough to create light tension, which will stabilize the string light wiring. String lights are then connected to the wiring in a woven fashion or with another type of fastener. For additional assistance in hanging the wiring, feel free to reach out to a specialist at your United Rentals branch.
