Lamps for runway, taxiway and approach lighting

The transport of passengers and freight in global air traffic makes great demands on safety, too. Because of its major impact on passenger safety, airport operators are paying special attention to the lighting of runways for take-off, landing and taxiing. Lighting is used to mark out the important areas of the airfield.

The light sources are integrated in appropriate obstacle lights, either set into the ground or installed above ground. This calls for lamps that are shockproof and can withstand the vibrations that occur when aircrafts take off and land. In addition, special safety regulations require a uniform and durable light output to ensure that aircraft movements run smoothly.
