Our Industrial Grade LED Airport Hangar and Tarmac Lights are designed to perform indoors and outdoors at airports and air bases.

Designed with safety in mind, these lights provided exceptional light and dramatically lower maintenance requirements than the HID lights they replace. Tarmac lights offer PWM Drivers, Light Spillage control and anti-glare. These lights are just not flood lights, they are purposely designed for airport tarmac operations.

LED Lights For Airports

Airports inside and out, from the terminal where everyone waits to the hangars; proper illumination is a must for safety, security, and for a pleasant experience. With industrial LED airport lighting systems, they are versatile working inside and out for any airport application. Outputting quality light and saving energy is what they are best known for, and its why LED airport lights are getting so popular at airports.

Airport Lighting - LED Lights For Hangars, Tarmacs and Open Areas


Whether you need lighting for a aircraft hangar, inside, the parking lot, or even airport flood lights for the field; LED is the solution to replace old lighting technologies that use up excess energy and output low quality light.

Low quality light has no place at an airport. Whether its inside in the waiting area or security screenings, the hangars, parking lots, or the runway; low quality lighting can cause for major accidents in such a fragile environment.

Since LED never flickers or buzzes and offer perfectly selected color temperatures, you can ensure the light output throughout your entire airport facility is of quality and is there to help aid in safety and security.

For better experiences, it is especially important for the airport terminal lighting system to be of quality. Why is the airport terminal lighting system so important? People are often stuck here for hours waiting, and a poor lighting system can make it a bad experience for many. Commercial LED airport terminal lights give off that same quality of light that is suited for indoors that will keep people feeling welcomed and safe, no matter how long of a wait.

As for outdoors, from the hangars to the runway; airport LED lighting fixtures are especially good due to their ability to work outside in high heat, cold, and anything in-between. This is crucial as airports need light at all times for optimal safety. In addition, the hangars need to be properly illuminated to ensure everything is visible to the visitors and staff in them. Our industrial LED hangar lighting products allow for the aircraft hangar lighting systems to be improved with LED hangar lights too, ensuring that proper aircraft hangar lux levels are met and energy savings are obtained.

5 Reasons to consider Airport and Tarmac LED Lighting Upgrades

LED hangar lighting at an airport

1. Reduced Costs

Reducing airport lighting costs becomes practical and sustainable with LED aircraft hangar fixtures. With energy savings up to 75%, you can reduce a tremendous amount of energy consumption. Also save with longer lifespans, reduced maintenance costs, and rebates are available to help lower the initial cost of purchase.


2. Increased Security


LED offers high quality light, they do not degrade as quickly like other lighting technologies like HID, can work in both hot and cold environments, and allow for instant on & off switching.

All of these features that both of our efficient LED hangar lighting & airport lighting fixtures offer are critical for a secure and safe lighting environment for any airport.


3. Improved Visibility for a Brighter and Safer Experience - for customers and workers


People do not want to wait or work in a poorly lit, distracting, and irritable lighting system. This is exactly what happens with fluorescent, metal halide, HPS, or any other HID lighting system. They are prone to flickering and buzzing, and offer a low quality light; all of which provides for a poor experience.

LED terminal lights remove all of these issues from ever occurring and its exactly why visitors prefer LED vs other lighting technologies. And it is imperative to maintain safe working areas on the tarmac for all the workers that load and unload planes, refuel and perform maintenance.


4. PWM LED Drivers to maintain exact color temperature for Tarmac Lighting


Our outdoor LED Airport Tarmac lights are equipped with PWM drivers. These lights are capable of maintaining exact color temperature which is important in an outdoor tarmac environment. These lights can produce up to 130,000 lumens capable of replacing 2000W Metal Halide. We also offer all our Retrofit Options with a PWM upgrade option. This allows you to convert you existing fixtures over to LED without the need to replace the fixture.


Anti Glare and No Light Spillage

Our specially designed LED Tarmac Lights are designed specifically to control glare and light spillage. Each light bar can be adjusted to where the light is needed, and more importantly, where it is not. This makes for brighter areas and safer environments for pilots and ground crews. We have the lumens to light up the hardest areas with optic packages from spot to flood.

How to Choose Light Fixtures for Aircraft Hangars

Hangars are closed building structures that hold aircraft or spacecraft as they are inspected, repaired, or protected from the elements. Hangars are often called glorified garages for airplanes and can vary from simple structures to environmentally-controlled maintenance facilities.

The lights of choice for both small and large aircraft hangars are usually high bay light fixtures because the structures have very high ceilings (35 ft - 75 ft). These fixtures provide sufficient light and extensive light coverage in large spaces.

Until recently, most aircraft hangars were illuminated using inefficient lighting systems such as high-pressure sodium or metal halide lights that made it difficult for aircraft technicians to discern colors and contrast. Aircraft hangars must have lighting with a high CRI (Color Rendering Index) and color temperature for enhanced productivity. Upgrading aircraft hangar lighting to LED technology results in low operating costs and better working conditions.

First, Examine the Aircraft Hangar

Aircraft hangars are not the same, so you must examine the hangar you are buying lights for or you may end up buying lights that are too bright or too dull.

When buying LED lighting fixtures, your goal should be to buy those that discharge bright and clear light and provide good coverage. Aircraft technicians and workers in the hangar must be able to carry out their work with ease during the day and at night. According to research, good lighting can positively impact workers’ productivity and energy levels.

Lights that are too bright can have a negative impact on productivity as people won't be able to see what they are doing. The size of an aircraft hangar also determines the number of light fixtures needed and their wattage.

Get the Right Fixtures to Ensure the Area is Properly Illuminated

The light fixtures in aircraft hangars are usually installed near the ceilings to make it easy for workers to clean and repair airplanes. High bays provide bright light from very high points, but in order for them to create a safe environment at the ground level, they must not be too bright and cause glare.

To prevent glare, you must ensure the light fixtures you buy provide sufficient brightness. But if glare becomes an issue in the future, you can reduce it by applying flat paint on the walls, incorporating reflectors into fixtures, and positioning fixtures away from an operator's sight line.
