What Is Airport Lighting?

Main terminal lighting (high bays, uplighting, fluorescent fixture replacements or metal halide recessed light conversions);
General outdoor wide area lighting - high masts;
Parking garage - canopy lights;
Parking lot lights;
Aircraft Maintenance Hangar lighting.
What Are the Ideal Airport Apron Lighting Standards?
We recommend you consult the appropriate FAA airport lighting guidelines.
What Is the Ideal Color Temperature to Use at an Airport?
Either 4000K or 5000K. These are the best all purpose color temperatures.
BEFORE YOU BUY
What Are the Best Fixtures to Use for Airport Apron Lighting?
We offer a very specialized airport apron light that allows each bank of light to be aimed to avoid glare issues for pilots.
What Are the Best Fixtures to Use for Airport Terminal Lighting?
For general open areas we would recommend high bay lights. They are perfect for illuminating large open spaces with tall ceilings.
What Are the Best Fixtures to Use for Airport Hanger Lighting?
We suggest high bay lights to light these areas. We can easily replace metal halide and fluorescent fixtures with 1 for 1 replacements, and provide high quality, bright lighting for aircraft maintenance.
What Are the Best Fixtures to Upgrade Can Lights in an Airport Terminal?
Our metal halide recessed can conversion kits have been installed in numerous international airports across the country, running 24/7.

FIXTURES AND FITTINGS
Can Your Fixtures Survive Being Struck by Lightning?
We can install very large surge protectors onto our lights, but a direct strike from lighting is extremely high voltage and the fixture will probably not survive. However, it should survive a nearby strike.
Is It Easy to Retrofit Metal Halide Recessed Lights Inside a Terminal with LED?
Yes, it’s nothing more than a simple bulb and ballast replacement. Our recessed light retrofit kits are installed in several airport terminals across the USA.
How Do You Replace a Metal Halide Fixture Inside an Aircraft Hangar?
It’s very simple, the mounting hardware is very similar to your existing lights. There are only three wires to connect - hot, neutral and ground.
