Default controlling 1500w light towers

Hi,

I have some 1500w light towers that we would like to turn on and then have the option to turn off manually or after a 2 hour period. We have four of these towers. I am having a hard time finding switches to do this. Is there a way to cut the load to the switch... maybe a relay or something?

Suggestions?

Sounds like a situation where you need a contactor and some override switches.
