affordable lighting system
for medium-sized regional airports

Booming passenger traffic forces airports to expand. Large International Airports concentrate significant resource to build new terminals, add runways and taxiways in order to be able to process up to 3x more passengers within 10-15 years. International hubs or major airports usually receive significany budget allowing them to cover infrastructure-related expenses.

Aside from large airports there is significant number of medium-sized regional airports that require to be equipped with modern runway lighting. Unavailable or unreliable lighting limits ability of airline operators to perform scheduled flights to such airports. Less scheduled flights means that airpot looses money that otherwise could have been earned.

Due to the limited budget Airport Managing Companies are either forced to postpone investment, invest in low-quality conventional lighting or operate outdated systems that provide poor visibility and are often unreliable.

Driven by intention to expand airport’s operating hours Airport Managing Companies frequently contact S4GA. The main aim is to find affordable alternative for conventional lighting system.

Plug and Play runway lighting
for Airports with limited budget

Affordability of airfield ground lighting (AGL) can not compromise redundancy or quality of the system. One of the ways to achive affordability is by decreasing amount of resources required to install and operate AGL. Hybrid AGL requires no complicated electrical circuit to operate and can be installed within days instead of months. Those two aspects reduces price of Hybrid AGL and makes up to 3x cheaper than similar layout but conventional (cable/mains) lighting system.

H-AGL can be installed by local construction company or even airport personnel (supervised by S4GA). Conventional lighting at the contrary requires significant engineering knowledge to be well designed and installed. Poor quality of installation may lead to disfunction of conventional lighting. Such risk does not exist in case of H-AGL as this system is designed to be plug-and-play. This means that airport can order nearly “out of the box” lighting system and install it on its own.

more reliable than wired lighting

Our customers value Hybrid AGL because it provides them with access to reliable infrastructure in locations where traditional lighting is not suitable. S4GA lighting increases safety, saves money on maintenance and helps to make money due to increased operations. Many features of Hybrid AGL makes it significantly more reliable than Conventional (wired) system. Read more

Affordable alternative for conventional (wired) lighting

Conventional runway lighting is a highly complex system. Energized by electrical circuit – it requires advanced infrastructure including: constant current regulators, isolating transformers, thousand meters of primary and secondary cables, etc. Unlike conventional cable-based lighting Hybrid system is 100% wireless and consists of independent lighting units. There is no need to build complicated electrical circuit which significantly lowers overall cost of Hybrid AGL. Less complex system makes it easier to maintain and troubleshoot.

  • ICAO Compliance verified by third-party testing
  • Affordable alternative for conventional wired lighting
  • Installation takes only 5 days
