Installation – no hassle and no wasted time

To make sure your installation goes smoothly, our expert engineers and supervisors can be with you from start to finish.

Our installation teams have years of experience across all our sectors – especially aviation. So, whatever the installation needs, they’ll be able to support you at every stage. This includes everything from; mast installation, fitting and assembling the lighting, lux surveys, compliance checks and beyond – wherever the project is located and whatever the environment.

We are one of the few manufacturers which provides both integrated driver and remote driver solutions. During the design phase, we’ll work with you and your consultants to develop designs showing the photometrics and analysis of both solutions. From there, we can decide which meets your operational, safety and energy reduction objectives.

Our mounting instructions provide installation teams with precise aiming guidance as well as detailed arrangements of luminaires on the masts. This helps make sure any errors are avoided and guarantees compliance with the initial lighting design.

Maintenance and warranty – protecting your investment

The great thing about airport LED lighting is it requires far less maintenance. It’s important though that you protect your investment to maximize the life span and return on investment. This is especially in true sectors like aviation where compliance and regulations come into play. So, our Airport Lighting Warranty lasts for 10 years!

Training and Education – getting your team up to speed

Many of the sectors we work in have very strict safety regulations – not just for the installation stage but for the final solution too. So, our experienced team is on hand to support you. Whether a partner, client, consultant or engineer, we’ve got your back. We offer a range of training and educational courses to support both our product and sector partners. From technical training on our product range to installation guidance or photometric testing guides and beyond, we’ll be there for you.

Photometric guidance for Aircraft stands: A step by step guide to measuring your lighting

Airport operators have a duty of care to provide a safe working environment for passengers and staff. Having the right, compliant lighting is a critical component of delivering this. But often airport staff aren’t sure of their obligations and don’t know how to check if they meet them. To help remedy this, we’ve created our Photometric Measurement for Aircraft Stand Guide to help educate and support airports with their compliance needs.
