International Model Numbers
All international model numbers are allocated by individual
country. Please refer to the rating plate label on your product
for the specific model number.
All award-winning UPLIGHT products are designed and manufactured to the highest standards. Used and maintained correctly they will provide dependable long-term operation.
Please follow these simple steps to prepare your Uplight
for use:
STEP 1 – INITIAL INSPECTION
Upon unpacking the UPLIGHT it should be inspected for
both damage and for contents. The product is supplied in
TWO CARTONS. Inside, there should be:
Carton ONE
1 x UPLIGHT LENS
ASSEMBLY complete
with cable and plug.
1 x RUBBER GASKET with
punched holes.
1 PACK OF 5 SCREWS to attach
the base to the lens assembly.
Carton TWO
1 x BASE ASSEMBLY either
yellow with a black rubber
bottom (UK version only) or
supplied as an empty yellow
shell to be filled with sand
(international version only).
(Please note, the sand acts as
a ballast and forms a
counterweight when added to
the base assembly).
1 x BLACK BUNG for sand
filled version.
In the event of damage being present or the absence of
components, please return it immediately to the outlet from

GETTING UPLIGHT STARTED
where the UPLIGHT was purchased. Otherwise, PROCEED TO
STEP 2.
STEP 2 – ASSEMBLY
Review the diagram on pages 10 and 11 to become
familiar with your Uplight.
*If your Uplight unit is a UK version, proceed with instructions
1-5 below.
UK version Yellow with a black rubber bottom
Control Doc. No. UI 0280 / 0901 / issue 02-02/07/02
**If your Uplight is an international ‘empty shell’ version, to
activate the self-righting action proceed to fill the base with
5Kg of dry sand by feeding it through the hole sealed by the
black bung. Once this task is complete, go on to instructions
1-5 below.
International version Empty yellow shell
1. Position the base assembly on a firm surface.
2. Place the rubber gasket onto the recessed surface of the
base assembly and carefully line up the 5 holes to them.
3. Place the lens assembly onto the gasket and line up the
holes. Insert the 5 screws provided and tighten the first
with a posi-drive screwdriver.
We advise that the lens assembly socket is lined up
between the two handles.
4. Tighten the second screw opposite the first, again leaving
it loose. DO NOT TIGHTEN FULLY YET.
5. Locate the remaining three screws and tighten them fully
(but do not overtighten), along with the initial two screws,
to retain the gasket. Avoid creases as the gasket is
designed to provide a complete seal between the two
parts.
STEP 3 – TESTING
1. Take the Uplight to the work area and position it so that it
is away from pedestrian traffic but near enough to the
work site to provide sufficient light.
2. Locate a switched supply socket appropriate to the
voltage of the Uplight unit that you have (refer to ‘Electrical
Safety Guidelines’). Ensure that this socket is switched
OFF.
3. Insert the plug of the Uplight into the socket, and locate
the retainer. Switch ON the power supply.
5
Please note that there is no ON/OFF switch on the unit – the
Uplight is controlled from the power supply.
SELF-RIGHTING PROPERTIES
Uplight has a unique self-righting action of up to 45º on the
4ft - 36W version and up to 60º on the 2ft - 18W version.
4ft 36w version
60º
2ft 18w version
PLEASE NOTE (international version only): If Uplight is stored,
transported or tipped horizontally, the sand may need to be
redistributed as follows:
1. Ensure that Uplight is disconnected from the mains supply.
2. Grip the two base handles and lift off the ground.
3. Rotate the base vigorously in a clockwise and anti-clock
wise motion (see diagram below) until the sand feels
evenly distributed.
4. Place the Uplight back on the ground and continue to use.
LINKING DIRECTIONS
Uplight is fitted with a power take-off socket, which should
ONLY BE USED to link additional Uplights. When linking a
series of Uplights the maximum quantity that can be connected together in any run is:
110V UPLIGHT – 69 units (if all 4ft-36W units) and 139 units
(if all 2ft-18W units) from a 2.5kVA generator with a 5-metre
spacing between them.
240V UPLIGHT – 20 units (if all 4ft-36W units) and 40 units
(if all 2ft-18W units) from a standard UK 13-amp household
supply.
To connect a series of UPLIGHTS this sequence MUST BE
followed to avoid dangers presented by overloading:
1. Place them all in position first.
2. Connect each together starting with the one farthest from
the power supply. Make sure that the power supply cables
are out of harm’s way.

3. Once all the lights are connected to each other, plug the
host light into the power supply and switch the supply ON.
LIGHTING TUBE REPLACEMENT
Control Doc. No. UI 0280 / 0901 / issue 02-02/07/02
Ensure that only replacement lighting tubes of the correct
type are used.
Uplight is supplied with either an 18W (2ft) or a 36W (4ft)
Philips 865 Colour Rendition ‘Cool Daylight’ T8 triphosphor
tube.
1. Disconnect the UPLIGHT from the power supply and allow
adequate time for cooling.
2. Unscrew the lens cap and remove the electrical fitting
from the lighting tube by pulling it away gently in a vertical
direction.
3. Lift the lighting tube out of the lens assembly.
4. Place the new lighting tube into the lens assembly,
making sure that the two end-pins are correctly inserted
into the canon. DO NOT FORCE – CORRECT INSERTION
SHOULD BE STRAIGHTFORWARD.
5. Replace the electrical fitting, again making sure that the
end-pins are inserted securely.
6. Screw the lens cap back on to make a correct seal to
prevent the ingress of water or physical objects.
A daily inspection is recommended to check for any physical
damage or cable abrasions, and to replace tubes and guards
when necessary. Also check that UPLIGHT is positioned to
maintain safe site conditions.
CLEANING
We recommend that you use only a damp cloth to clean your
Uplight. Please note that the chemicals used in some cleaning products may damage the diffuser and in no circumstances should you use any such products.
SERVICE RECOMMENDATIONS
Only suitably qualified personnel should service the unit. If
you have a problem with your unit please return it to the
outlet from where you purchased it, ensuring that you have
full details of your product as described on the product rating
plate.
Should it be necessary for work to be carried out it is
important to provide the suitably qualified repairer with the
complete unit.
Should you require service under the terms of our guarantee
you will need to present proof of purchase.
NOTE: Service repairers act on their own behalf and are not
empowered to commit or legally bind Birchwood Products
Ltd. in any manner whatsoever.

Control Doc. No. UI 0280 / 0901 / issue 02-02/07/02
1. How often should I replace the tube?
Uplight uses a T8 triphosphor tube with an extended life of
20,000 hours due to the in-built high-frequency
technology. However, we only recommend replacement of
the tube after failure.
2. Is Uplight suitable for indoor or outdoor use?
Uplight is rated to IP44 and is suitable for indoor and
outdoor use (IP44 = protected against solid objects over
1mm and water sprayed from all directions - limited
ingress permitted).
3. How hot does the light lens get in operation?
Low wattage means low heat. Uplight is tepid to touch
even in continuous use.
4. How can I change the lighting intensity?
Uplight has a detachable aluminium reflector. With it
Uplight provides 180º intense luminosity, when removed it
provides 360º flooded luminosity.
5. Can Uplights be linked together?
Yes, Uplights can be linked together in series. Please refer
to the ‘Linking Directions’ section of this guide.
6. Can I connect power tools to the power socket?
It is not advisable to use the power socket as a power
outlet.
