Aircraft Hangar, Calgary International Airport

50 Foot Wall Wash, Calgary International Airport

Aircraft maintenance is a key part of daily operations at Calgary international airport. Maintenance hangars must operate smoothly under heavy use as well as extreme weather temperatures.

An infrastructure team needed to install outdoor lighting to their maintenance hangar’s exterior.

Light colour temperature had to be specific as well have versatile angle control so lighting glare would not interfere with other planes on the nearby runway.

A light fixture next to a potential vibration area (door motor) could also prove a hindrance to bulb longevity.

Outdoor fixture location exposed to a wide temperature range of -40C (-40F) in the winter to peak summer temperatures exceeding 30C (86F).

Conventional outdoor lighting (HPS, HID) tolerate low temperatures and winter elements to various degrees depending on the technology used.

Nemalux was selected because the client liked…

  • Low maintenance requirements – lifespan of 100,000 hours.
  • Ability to operate in outdoor winter conditions
  • Robust aluminum housing for outdoor applications.
  • Operating temperature range from -40C to +85C.
  • Rated IP66 (Ingress Protection).
  • Power savings and environmental responsibility – the RSLED is a cost viable alternative to High Pressure Sodium (HPS) or High Intensity Discharge (HID) fixtures using approximately half of the electricity as traditional lighting.

Implementation

Twelve RSLEDs were installed on the hangar at a height of 50 feet (15 m). Installers appreciated the quick installation time with the adjustable mounting arms. These rigid arms offered locked-in, slightly off-axis angle mounting; a structurally demanding position that often slips with other adjusting systems.

Results

Installers capitalized on the quick installation time with the main bracket and adjustable mounting arms. These rigid arms offered locked-in, slightly off-axis angle mounting; a structurally demanding position that often slips with other adjusting systems. Users were impressed with the light output and aircraft operators appreciated the control of outward glare.
