CU Phosco Lighting

High Mast Lighting for Airports

CU Phosco Lighting are the market leaders in the design, manufacture, installation and maintenance of high Mast lighting for airports. CU Phosco Lighting undertakes contracts at airports worldwide, working closely with numerous large facilities including Heathrow, Manchester, Dubai, Melbourne, Bristol, Abu Dhabi, Dublin, Beijing and Changi.

Our high masts and luminaires are present in the most demanding climatic conditions from typhoon winds in the South China Sea to the high temperatures of the Middle Eastern summer.

As a company we look after our customer from initial consultation through to installation, final commissioning and follow up maintenance. Our dedicated Contract Services Division is able to manage your projects in the UK, Europe and Worldwide. To achieve this we recognise the need to build honest relationships with our customers, to offer products at fair prices and importantly to support our customers on the use, maintenance and eventually replacement of our equipment. This all adds up to a level of support which is unparalleled in the lighting industry.

To be confident in providing the quality and support our customers require, we manufacture products which meet the customer’s technical performance and which are also appropriate for the environment into which they will be placed. Sometimes these aims are contradictory and it is then where the knowledge and experience of our staff is called upon by customers to ensure the best compromise of performance and durability is achieved.

Our Contract Services Division are an experienced team who are able to supply, install and maintain high masts using their own ASLEC and NICEIC certified personnel.

  • High Mast LED Floodlighting


    FL800R LED FLOODLIGHTING SYSTEM provides an innovative new approach to floodlighting.

    To build a system, FL800R modules can be grouped as a luminaire in single, double, triple or quad configurations and arranged on a mast with full azimuth rotation and tilt function. WB830 gear box provides remote mounting for LED drivers and controls whilst the WB855 gear box is used for side entry mounting.

    Each module has a range of optical distribution options and a range of elevation angles to build a combined luminaire photometric output that meets even the most challenging of schemes.

    FL800R module uses AeroFlow® Cooling System to provide exceptional thermal management. Maximised heat dissipation enables a compact luminaire design, which can be retrofitted onto existing masts.

    Lumileds LUXEON® M LEDs and AeroFlow® together deliver high lumen output with very low lumen depreciation over life, this minimises energy and operating cost by reducing overlighting.

    FL800R offers an extremely competitive solution to replace traditional HID sources with performance, versatility and reliability from the latest technology.
