LEDs LIGHT UP THE PLACE

MEDIA CLIPPING: CARMANAH PROVIDES AIRSIDE CONSTRUCTION LIGHTING TO ALERT PILOTS OF POTENTIAL HAZARDS

ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED IN THE FAA AIRPORT SAFETY NEWSLETTER, JULY 30, 2003

 

FAA recently looked at LED equipment to identify construction areas and as a means of alerting pilots and other operators on the airport about the location of potential hazards. Several airports have decided that the conspicuity and lighting-life features of solar-powered LEDs are technology’s newest contribution to the need for equipment that is economical and effective.

Electric bills for lighting obstructions and hazards can prove expensive. Battery-powered lights either fail or do not provide light bright enough to identify hazards adequately. LEDs are bright, install quickly, have low or no maintenance, and are completely self-contained.

The lighting of construction hazards is especially important in adverse weather conditions, and LEDs are all-weather operative. O’Hare and Seattle airports are currently at using LEDs to identify construction activity. The photo below was taken at O’Hare International Airport.
