UK International introduces UK Unilite Zoom

June 12, 2006
Date Announced: 12 Jun 2006 Poway, California – Continuing in its tradition of developing innovative products, UK International, also known as Underwater Kinetics, today announced the release of its new Unilite Zoom – one of the most flexible and powerful work lights ever created.An ideal flashlight for confined space workers, municipal workers, firefighters, safety inspectors, and telecommunication, utility, and installation professionals, the Unilite Zoom boasts a 360-degree rotating lamp head allowing users to focus the light exactly where it is needed. A sturdy unbreakable nylon clip is included, allowing the Unilite Zoom to be attached to a coat pocket, safety strap, or belt.The Unilite Zoom’s high-intensity LED projects a long-lasting, even, super bright beam at half the size and weight of bulky 3C LED lights. A twist of the bezel allows users to switch between an intense narrow beam and a broad illuminating beam.UK’s patent-pending Projection Optical System, the technological breakthrough behind the Unilite Zoom, uses a dual lens bezel instead of reflectors to produce an incredibly smooth beam of light closely mimicking daylight. Unilite Zoom has a life 100 times greater than conventional xenon flashlights and is brighter than a cluster of seven LEDs. By clicking the switch rapidly, users can switch between full power to the LED and less power for extending the burn time. Unilite Zoom’s two-watt LED lasts for thousands of hours and maintains constant brightness for over 80 percent of the battery life –saving considerable money by minimizing the replacement of batteries and the lamp. Unlike conventional lights, the solid state LED will not break when dropped.Here are some other key features:+ The light is waterproof up to 10 feet.+ Its non-corroding ABS and polycarbonate plastic construction casing is tough and electrically non-conductive.+ A rubber sheath molded over the bezel reduces glare and improves impact resistance (it passes the six-foot drop-to-concrete test).+ A hydrogen scrubber catalyst, polarized battery contacts, and 0-psi vent minimize the risk of an explosion from leaking batteries.+ It is UL certified for use in hazardous locations.A push-button thumb switch allows users to switch between ON/OFF and high/low intensity. The Unilite Zoom also has a new, easy loading drop-in battery compartment for quick reloading of batteries.“The Unilite Zoom has all the features making it a tremendous work light,” said Walter Kaihatu, president of UK International. “With its flexibility, powerful beam, rotating lamp head, and zoom features, it meets the needs of the most demanding users.”The Unilite Zoom light can be purchased through authorized UK dealers.About UK InternationalUK International designs and manufactures flashlights, waterproof cases, and other accessories for the utility, industrial, fire, first response, government, and dive and sport industries’ most demanding applications.
