We have full ownership of our IP, including our proprietary asymmetric optic lens system for low glare conditions, our thermal dissipation design and our component integration. We work with the best-in-class components, we use top-bin LED chips and we improve our product lines regularly to stay ahead of the market trends.

Midstream is your high-mast airport apron lighting partner that understands the constraints and challenges of working in a dynamic environment.

Our experience of working airside and landside of major international hubs (as well as regional airports) allows us to mitigate risks before they occur and to respond to challenges when they arise. When it comes to our customers in South America, we specialise in iluminación de platforma aviones and can provide technical materials in Spanish.

We have the full in-house capability to support you with additional lighting designs, as-built drawings, site surveys, investigations and reports. Our reaction time is very short and a dedicated account manager will be always fully briefed and on standby to respond.

Midstream is the Winner of the prestigious “Inter Airport Innovations Award 2015”, presented by the CEO of Munich Airport for its Titan Series LED Floodlight.

As an airport operator, you will need a lighting system that is well engineered, robust, dependable, reliable, fit-for-purpose and made to last. This is what Midstream offers and that is why so many airport operators choose Midstream as their apron-floodlighting partner.

  • Mobile Tower Lights

    The Midstream Mobile Tower Light is a unique system that allows airside operators to commision an aircraft stand in full compliance with ICAO requirements. Proprietary high-asymmetry optics throw the light to the back of stand without tilting and emitting light into the sky. Low tilt operation significantly reduces glare to pilots and ground staff.

    Featuring a 9 metre vertical, hydraulic mast, delivering an impressive average 20 Lux coverage over 3600m². Fitted with 4 x 326W LED asymmetric floodlights and a 110-litre long-run fuel tank, this system allows for commissioning of Code F and Code E aircraft stands in full compliance with ICAO requirements.

    Remote control, timer or photo-cell operation allows for autonomy even on remote aprons. Main application areas are low usage stands, remote aprons, stand reconfiguration and temporary or no-power network locations. Two masts used in tandem can commission up to a Code F stand to Annex 14 requirements.
