MyLEDLightingGuide Industrial Grade LED Airport Hangar and Tarmac Lights are designed to perform indoors and outdoors at airports and air bases. Designed with safety in mind, these lights provide exceptional light. They have lower maintenance requirements than the HID lights they replace.

Tarmac lights offer PWM Drivers, Light Spillage control and anti-glare. These lights are not flood lights, they are specific for airport tarmac operations.

LED Lights For Airports

Airport Lighting

Airports, from the terminal to the hangars, need proper lights for safety and security. LED airport lighting systems are versatile working inside and out any airport application. Quality lights and saving energy is what they're best known for. It's why LED airport lights are getting so popular.

Airport Lighting - LED Lights For Hangars, Tarmacs and Open Areas


Whether you need lights for a plane hangar, parking lot, or airport flood lights in the field LED is the solution. Replace old technologies that use up excess energy and output low quality light.

Low quality light has no place at an airport. Whether it's the waiting area, security, hangars, parking lots, or on the runway. Low quality lighting can cause major accidents in such a fragile environment.

LED never flickers or buzzes and offers select color temperatures. You can ensure the light output throughout your entire airport facility is of high quality. It's there to help aid in safety and security.

It is especially important for the airport terminal lighting system to be quality. Why is the airport terminal lighting system so important? People are often stuck here for hours waiting, and a poor lighting system can make it a bad experience for many. Commercial LED airport terminal lights are the same quality for indoors.

As for outdoors, hangars to the runway, airport LED lights perform in high heat or freezing cold. This is crucial as airports need light at all times for optimal safety. Besides, the hangars need light to ensure everything is visible to the visitors and staff in them. Our industrial LED hangar lighting products allow for optimal lighting systems. Ensuring that proper aircraft hangar lux levels are met with energy savings.

5 Reasons to consider Airport and Tarmac LED Lighting Upgrades

LED hangar lighting at an airport
1. Reduced Costs

Reducing airport lighting costs becomes practical and sustainable with LED aircraft hangar fixtures. With energy savings up to 75%, you can reduce a tremendous amount of energy consumption. Also save with longer lifespans and reduced maintenance costs.  Rebates maybe available to help lower the initial cost of purchase.

2. Increased Security

LED offers high quality light that doesn't degrade the same as other lighting technologies, like HID. They can work in both hot and cold environments, and allow for instant on & off switching.
The features of our efficient LED hangar & airport lighting offer are critical for a secure and safe airport environment.

3. Improved Visibility for a Brighter and Safer Experience - for customers and workers

People do not want to wait or work in a poor lit, distracting, and irritable lighting system. This is what happens with fluorescent, metal halide, HPS, or any other HID lighting system. They are prone to flickering and buzzing, with low quality light, all which give a poor experience.
LED terminal lights remove all these issues from occurring. Its exactly why visitors prefer LED vs other lighting technologies. And it is imperative to maintain safe working areas... on the tarmac for the workers that load and unload planes, refuel and perform maintenance.

4. PWM LED Drivers to maintain exact color temperature for Tarmac Lighting

Our outdoor LED Airport Tarmac lights are equipped with PWM drivers. These lights are capable of maintaining exact color temperature which is important in an outdoor tarmac. These lights can produce up to 130,000 lumens capable of replacing 2000W Metal Halide. We also offer all our Retrofit Options with a PWM upgrade option. This allows you to convert you existing fixtures over to LED without the need to replace the fixture.

5. Anti Glare and No Light Spillage

Our LED Tarmac Lights are designed specifically to control glare and light spillage.

Each light bar can adjust to where the light is needed, and more important, where it is not.

This makes for brighter areas and safer environments for pilots and ground crews.

We have the lumens to light up the hardest areas with optic packages from spot to flood.

How to Choose Light Fixtures for Aircraft Hangars

Hangars are closed building structures to hold planes or spacecrafts. They are inspected, repaired, and protected from the elements. Hangars are often called glorified garages for airplanes. They can vary from simple structures to environmentally-controlled maintenance facilities.

The best lighting for both small and large aircraft hangars are high bay light fixtures. This is because the structures have very high ceilings (35 ft - 75 ft). These fixtures provide enough light and extensive light coverage in large spaces.

Until recently, most aircraft hangars used inefficient lighting systems, like HPS or MH. That made it difficult for aircraft technicians to discern colors and contrast. Aircraft hangars need lights with a high CRI (Color Rendering Index) and color temperature for enhanced productivity. Upgrading aircraft hangar lighting to LED technology results in low operating costs and better work conditions.

First, Examine the Aircraft Hangar

Aircraft hangars are not the same. Make sure to examine the hangar you are buying lights for or you may end up buying lights that are too bright or too dull.

When buying LED light fixtures, the goal is to buy bright and clear lights that provide good coverage. Aircraft technicians and workers in the hangar must be able to work with ease during the day and at night. According to research, good lighting has a positive impact on workers’ productivity and energy levels.

Lights that are too bright can have a negative impact on productivity. People won't be able to see what they are doing.

The size of an aircraft hangar determines the number of light fixtures needed and their wattage.

Get the Right Fixtures to Ensure the Area is Properly Illuminated

The best way to do this is to create a photometric report using your hangar. A photometric layout takes the building's dimensions (length, width and height) along with other factors. It creates a software representation. We can then add your existing light locations, and then model this with lighting options.
Why are photometrics important?
This report allows you to see how your area would look under LED Lighting and takes the risk out of buying.
We can run different options with our lights and provide you with the proper information and guidance. We're here to save you money with LED. But it's as important to get the lighting right.
