United Crane and Rigging - Baltimore, MD


Location: Across the northeast USA

Client: United Crane & Rigging

Overview: Established in Maryland in the 1970s, United Crane and Rigging rents and sells crane and rigging equipment to clients across the northeast United States. The company sought new solutions for obstruction lighting, a key aspect of the business that ensures their equipment is safely and properly marked for aircraft. Joe Mirabile, lead tower crane technician for United Crane and Rigging, explains the frustrations of using AC or battery-powered lights on their equipment. “Frequent battery changes get expensive, and hard-wired lights take up valuable time to set up,” he says. “I needed something easier for our team to install that would work for any application.”

Our Solution: OL800 compact solar LED obstruction light

Requirements: A light that would meet FAA compliance and also offer GPS synchronization so the lights could flash simultaneously.

"These lights have solved all my issues. This is the last obstruction light you’ll ever need—for an affordable price, at that."
