The RAF has updated its Hangar lighting at 2 Aircraft Hangars in Yorkshire.
The Hangar lighting at RAF Disforth required 126 x IL Series High Bay luminaires, each with 1000w Metal Halide lamps. The Hangar Luminaires are mounted at 11m and are ideal for Hangar lighting as they are low glare, have a lumen package of 100,000 lumens+, and gear can be remote if required. The Luminaire is very robust, die-cast aluminium construction, includes a 6mm tempered glass lens, and a hydroformed reflector.
The fitting has been used in many Aircraft Hangar lighting projects, from low height Hangars with 8m-10m ceilings for small corporate jets, up to large Hangars of 30m height which can accommodate several of the largest commercial planes (747s etc).
The fitting has also been used recently with many large industrial buildings including Power Station lighting (eg. Fiddlers Ferry Power Station in Warrington, Veolia in Staffordshire or Longannet near Edinburgh, etc). Industrial Projects which require robust Luminaires are particularly suitable.
The Luminaire is also suited towards installations with higher ambient temperatures and has been installed in several Swimming Pool lighting schemes such as Ipswich Council Pool. The Control gear can be located remotely which is an advantage in certain projects, examples: where access is difficult, or the Luminaires need to be of light weight, or high ambient temperature areas, etc.
An LED version is due for release in December 2015.

To get a detailed Proposal for your Hangar Lighting project:
Please send enquiry by email and drawings if relevant. There is no charge or obligation for suitable Projects.
We will calculate the number of Hangar Lights required and advise light levels. We will advise where they should be located and the cost of the Equipment. Other lighting may need to be added for landscaped areas or to add decorative architectural effect.
