Our solutions service includes feasibility analysis, project financing and planning, engineering, installation, monitoring, operating and maintenance. The integration of PV solar modules into airport terminals is an ideal BIPV application.
Airport buildings are typically large, isolated, mostly low-rise structures with little or no shading, where there is plenty of room to accommodate PV modules on rooftops, façades, and parking lots.

Our Diverse Product Range
We manufacture high mast lighting systems for airports including fixed masts, lowering headframe masts and base-hinged masts. Fixed masts allow maximum flexibility for big top-loads.
Lowering headframe masts are easy to maintain and are a good quality product. Base-hinged masts include a short turnaround time with quick assembly and installation. Another advantage is that maintenance can be carried out at ground level.
The floodlighting we provide for airports includes our range of Trent Floodlighting, Challenger ®1 floodlighting. Trent floodlighting includes all-weather and corrosion resistant polyster powder.
Fast servicing can also be carried out due to tool-free access as well as heat in the body being managed by wide cooling fins. Challenger® 1 floodlighting gives excellent light control, reducing overspill, upward light and glare.
These floodlights also include narrow, medium and wide beam double asymmetric lighting distributions.
