Our heliport perimeter lights provide an LED based solution to the ICAO touchdown and lift-off area perimeter style of steady-burning lights. The lights are currently available in blue, green, yellow, red or white LEDs operating at 120, 240, 277 VAC or 12, 24 VDC. Each configuration is available as original equipment or as direct lens/lamp field retrofit to existing conventional light bases. This fixture may be mounted on a base plate, junction box or stake, sold separately.

Visible/Infrared LED Option

Common LED lights can pose a hazard to pilots using Night Vision Goggles (NVGs). This is due to the fact that NVGs typically use filters to block cockpit lighting from saturating the imaging system. This has the unintended effect of making LED lights invisible to pilots. In response, we have incorporated NVG friendly technology into our fixture, giving pilots using night vision goggles unmatched visibility of the helipad touchdown and lift-off area (TLOF).

Rain and snow won’t hurt these corrosion-resistant boxes. They feature a powder coating and are UL listed and CSA certified.

The boxes are aluminum and have NPSM (National Pipe Straight Mechanical) threaded hubs in the back and sides for secure connection to conduit and fittings. They come with closure plugs for unused hubs, a grounding screw, and attachable mounting lugs. The boxes may be mounted horizontally and vertically.

Single-device (1 gang) boxes hold one toggle switch, GFCI, duplex receptacle, or other electrical device; two-device (2 gang) boxes hold two.


• Number of Hubs: 5
• Hub Trade Size: 1/2″
• Overall Size: Diameter 4-5/16″, Height 2-1/4″
• Capacity: 16.5 cu. in.
• Finish: powder coating, gray

Note: Trade size refers to an industry designation for conduit and fittings and is not an actual measurement. When selecting a box, match the trade size of the conduit.
