Sustainable LED technology
Sustainable LED technology allows you to minimise energy consumption. The innovative combination of LED strips and power supply is fully prepared for the future. This can be connected via the communication protocols of the most commonly used airfield lighting control and monitoring systems.
Strength and frangibility
With the introduction of more powerful aircraft, the strength and frangibility of the signs is more important than ever. Designing a sign concept strong enough to withstand a wind load of 483 km/h, which also frangible when colliding with an object, is a challenge.
Combining these two contradictory characteristics demands a rigorous approach. The design of our signs has been subject to thorough FEM analysis for the highest load: mode3, wind load 483 km/h. Our signs have been tested and certified according to EASA/ICAO regulations and, moreover, have successfully proven their strength at several leading airports.
Protected by IP67
The new FLAT-Light TGS S4 LED illuminated signs offer unique resistance to dust, solid objects and moisture in accordance with IP67. They are 100% protected against solids such as dust and sand, and tests show they continue to work for at least 30 minutes while submerged in 15cm to 1m of water.
Limited and easy maintenance - new modular design
If repair or maintenance is required, the power supply can be replaced in just a few minutes. The sign box is IP67, which eliminates the biggest cause of LED failure: moisture. If the LED fails within the warranty period, the complete sign box will be replaced within a very short time. The old sign box is then returned to our workshop were it will be prepared for reuse. Feel free to contact us about this unique and sustainable service concept.
Each sign, at every location, features a QR code for accessing technical information. The new modular design of the FLAT-Light TGS S4 makes maintenance and replacement of parts easier than ever.
