Obstacle Lights

Obstacle light (or obstruction light) is usually red or white color light that is used to mark obstacles, obstructions, buildings, cranes, bridges, non-servicing road areas, antennas etc. Obstacle lights can be steady of flashing, they also have different light intensity depending on the height and nature of obstruction they illuminate.

Types of Obstruction Lights

For different obstacles, different types of obstruction lights are used. It mostly depends on the height of obstruction – the higher the obstruction is, the brighter and more visible the light should be. There are four types of obstruction lights:

  • Type-A obstruction light is red steady light with light output up to 10 cd (candelas)
  • Type-B obstruction light is also red steady lights. However light output should be not less than 32 cd
  • Type-C obstruction light is a flashing light of yellow or blue color. Such light should provide minimum 40 cd
  • Type-D obstruction light is the brightest light – 200 cd. Type D light is yellow flashing obstacle light.

Obstruction aviation lights

Portable airport lightsAt the airport, Type A red obstruction lights are used in most cases. Obstruction lights are used to mark different obstructions at the airport like Airport Tower, non-servicing areas on the airfield, buildings, antennas, etc.

Portable obstruction lights

Obstruction aviation lights can be mounted on a permanent basis or temporarily. For temporary applications (e.g. runway reconstruction), portable obstacle lights are used. They are battery powered or solar powered aviation lights. In comparison, permanent obstruction lights are usually energized by 6.6A electrical grid if they’re mounted at airport.

Warning lights for airport construction

Red obstruction lights are widely used during construction works at the airport. For example, a part of airfield is temporarily closed due to refurbishment of the surface. This is an unserviceable area which is dangerous for both aircrafts and machinery moving on the airfield. To indicate such closed areas, warning lights and caution lights are used.
