Heliport Perimeter Light

Low intensity constant voltage elevated perimeter light helps mark helipad touchdown and lift-off area (TLOF). The fixture consists of a colored Fresnel lens (globe) mounted on an aviation yellow powder coated cast aluminum lamp housing. The powdercoat finish complies with the US Military Standard Salt Fog Test conducted per MIL-STD-810E, Method 509.3, Procedure 1 for corrosion resistance. The lamp is secured by an O-ring seal and clamp band. The upper assembly mounts on a 1″ EMT extension into the 1.5″ NF aluminum breakable coupling. An optional 2″ NPS breakable coupling is available. All of the hardware is stainless steel.

This fixture may be mounted on a base plate, junction box or stake, sold separately. The light is furnished with wire leads for wiring in the field. Most of the replacement parts are compatible with other manufacturers; consult Flight Light with specific inquires. With a low initial cost and up to 8,000 hours rated lamp life (69W), this fixture is the most economical light we offer.
