Apron and Taxiway Edge Lighting

atg airports offer a range of airfield lighting solutions including apron and taxiway edge lighting, compliant to all the latest standards.  Click on an image below for more information about specific types and models of airfield taxiway lighting.

Movement around the taxiways and aprons can be achieved more safely due to the many different lighting applications that are available to the airport.

Taxiway edge lighting fixtures, blue in color, can be utilised on all taxiways where centreline lighting is not provided.

Edge lighting can also be installed to denote the limits of aprons, parking areas, hard standings, servicing areas and other designated paved areas. Generally, this type of lighting would be elevated, but where manoeuvring is difficult it is likely to be inset.

Atg airports manufactures both inset and elevated fixtures using tungsten halogen or LED’s as the main light source.
