Product Details

The new design of this Inset perimeter light is the latest addition to the FEC Heliports line of high quality LED lights. Perimeter lights are one of the most important safety features on your heliport. They are used to mark and illuminate the perimeter of your landing area (TLOF/FATO) to help the pilot locate the pad and safely land during night operations and inclement weather conditions. The inset light is used in place of an elevated heliport perimeter light at locations where the lights are frequently knocked down by aircraft and or maintenance vehicles. These lights are strong enough to drive over without damaging the light.
