What is obstruction lighting?

Delta has specialised in obstruction lighting for the safeguard of tall buildings, preventing aircrafts from coming into contact with tall buildings/structure, hence leading to severe collisions and costing lives.

Why is obstruction lighting needed?

Obstruction lighting is a necessity in today’s modern world with tall building on the rise. This is why as a UK based company, we provide obstruction lighting all around the world including Europe, Africa, Middle East & Far East.

Why choose Delta’s obstruction lighting? 

Our obstruction lighting is smartly designed to be energy efficient with high-intensity brightness providing maximum visibility during daylight and at night. Therefore reducing maintenance cost and thus increasing longevity, durability and endurance against extreme weathers. Unlike expensive neon lighting, Delta’s LED technology gives the client a long-lasting and cost-saving light.

Making it the most versatile obstruction lighting in the industry.

Why choose Delta? 

Delta is known as the founder of light emitting diode (LED) technology. It now specialises in producing long-lasting LED aircraft warning lights, aviation warning lights, navigational lights, obstruction lights, obstruction beacons, flashing lights and crane lights with cutting-edge technology in the ranges of low intensity and medium intensity, in line with the civil/federal aviation authority requirements’ ICAO annex 14.

Delta specialises in the design, manufacture, installation and maintenance of LED aircraft warning lights and aviation warning lights. We can supply and install either individual lights or entire systems.

Delta is recognised as the most competitive supplier in the market maintaining their high-quality standards.

Who has Delta worked with?

At Delta we care for our environment and customers, which we deliver that through providing sustainable lighting best suited for their building structures, as evident from our previous clients like Canary Wharf, Queen Elizabeth Bridge, BT Tower, Heron Tower, The Shard, Honeywell and many other tower cranes & wind turbine companies. You can view our client case studies here.

Obstruction lighting regulations.

Obstruction lighting is a legal requirement and legal articles state that an ‘en-route’ obstruction such as onshore wind turbines, any buildings or structures that are 150m above ground level or in a flight path or near an airport require obstruction lighting, also known as aviation warning lights. These legislations are very similar worldwide and having these safety standard guidelines are mandatory for companies to set in place as part of their precautionary measures, CAA, CAP 168, FAA, ICAO regulations are followed.

Benefits of Delta Warning lights? 

Delta’s LED airport warning lights do not need expensive, urgent maintenance to replace bulbs, and they have one of the best operational lifespans in the market. The advanced design of our lighting systems also reduces the threat of a total blackout.

 

Medium intensity obstruction beacons

Delta’s WL3000 LED obstruction beacon is a medium intensity, omni-directional obstruction light designed for long-life and low-maintenance use, and is therefore ideally suited for positions of limited access. It meets the requirements of ICAO and CAA.

Suitable for marking obstructions such as chimneys, masts, and buildings with high background luminance in remote areas, Delta’s obstruction beacons are crucial for marking tall structures which may serve as a hazard to aircraft.

Low maintenance and designed for long life, Delta’s WL3000 LED obstruction beacon is ideal for positions of limited access. Low operational costs, low power consumption (≥60w) and an objective element life of 100,000 hours make Delta’s obstruction beacons the smart choice.

The WL2500 red LED medium-intensity obstruction beacon incorporates state of the art LEDs in an efficient optical design, providing the performance needed in order to meet ICAO, CAA and FAA requirements whilst only consuming 48W of power.

Low-Intensity Warning Lights

The WL75 Mk3 obstruction light is a low intensity omni-directional Type A aviation obstruction light that complies fully to the requirements of ICAO annex 14 and CAP 168. A long lasting, reliable light, it is ideally suited to arduous environments where access is a problem.

It is available as a battery-powered unit, and stand-alone versions are available, complete with photoelectric control. The WL50 Mk3 has an objective lifespan of approximately 75,000 hours.

Delta’s WLTWIN75 low intensity, Type A, omni-directional duty stand-by obstruction light is a twin lamp general-purpose aircraft warning light with long life LED lamps. The WLTWIN75 consists of two WL75 aviation obstruction lights and die cast aluminium light fitting, which houses the electronics and LED clusters.

Solar powered aircraft warning lights

The WLS-10 low intensity solar powered aviation warning light is a LED omni direction light specially designed for marking hazards to air navigation. With its flashing red safety light coupled with the latest LED technology, high grade silicon solar battery module, maintenance-free NIMH battery the light will provide over 20 days of continuous operation in continuous rainy and cloudy days.

The built in photocell switches ON and OFF at dusk and dawn. The product has the advantage of shockproof and can withstand the harsh effect of the environment (such as thunder, storm, typhoon and hailstone).

Crane warning lights

Many bridges and buildings may require obstruction lighting due to their height, surrounding environment, or proximity to airports.

Delta supplies aviation obstruction warning lights to be installed on tall structures, such as tower cranes and wind turbines. The lights feature a modular, integrated design, as well as a waterproof seal to protect against prolonged and deep immersion in accordance with the IP68 standard.

Medium and low-intensity red lights are mounted as close as possible to the top of high-rise structures. Such lighting should be visible from all directions, even at night.
