Portable, temporary and emergency airfield lighting for airports

Carmanah has been an industry leader in emergency airfield lighting for over 20 years and our products have demonstrated time and time again that they can stand up to the harshest conditions and operate reliably, independent of electrical infrastructure.

Our portable airport lighting is self-contained, easy to use, and requires virtually no maintenance for seven years on average. These qualities make Carmanah airport lighting the ideal choice for temporary, portable, and backup application across the world.

Do you need to operate regardless of the status of the electrical grid? Carmanah Technologies has the products you need to ensure safe night operations, independent of grid supplied electricity and backup generators.

RUNWAY LIGHTING

The Carmanah A704 compact 250cd solar runway light is light weight, portable, and reliable. Set it down on its integral base, or choose one of our mounting options, and continue your night operations with minimal disruption.

The A704 standard 500cd runway light and A650 solar taxiway light are the ideal backup airport lighting solution for commercial operations and non-precision IFR runways. Install the A704 adjacent to existing lights for backup lighting at the push of a button, or deploy the lights as needed. A 4000 m runway can be deployed in under an hour.

For greater visibility and enhanced night time operation Carmanah offers the A704 large 750 cd runway light. This new product is the brightest solar powered runway light on the market today and features the same legendary Carmanah reliability and durability.

TAXIWAY LIGHTING

For operators looking to enhance taxiway safety and vertical visibility for larger aircraft, the Carmanah A704-VL is the product you need. The top mounted LED’s guarantee visibility from above and six user selectable settings allow multiple output intensities which meet and exceed the requirements for ICAO taxiways and FAA requirements of L-861T.

TRANSPORTABLE

For ultimate portability and transportability, the Portable Airfield Lighting Trailer (PALT) is a fully configurable trailer that can store over 130 lights, enabling lighting for runways up to 4,000 m to be deployed in minutes! It can be configured with an integrated solar charging system to ensure airfield lights are charged when they are needed.
