Carmanah's Barricade Lights Illuminate Memphis International Airport

Monday, July 23, 2007

As the “World's Busiest Airport” for cargo handling, Memphis International Airport relies upon Carmanah's solar-powered barricade lights to keep its operations flowing smoothly. A Carmanah customer since 2004 (through the contract services of Airfields Etc. Inc), Memphis International has equipped its airfield with more than 300 solar-powered barricade lights.

Placed on top of cones and water-filled barricades, Carmanah's solar-powered LED lights are built to withstand extreme weather conditions, as well as the bumps, vibrations, and jet blasts typical of a busy airfield. Thanks to the durability and reliability of Carmanah's industrial-strength technology, none of the barricade lights has ever failed, despite being regularly subjected to harsh treatment.

In addition to being flawlessly reliable, Carmanah's solar-powered barricade lights are a convenient and economical choice; they can be installed in minutes, require no trenching or cabling, and can operate maintenance free for up to five years.

According to Stephanie Poole, MD of Airfield Etc. Inc, Carmanah's solar-powered technology achieves major labor savings over the lifetime of projects. "In the past, we have used battery-powered lights,” says Poole. “The batteries would have to be changed at least once a month or so. By using Carmanah lights, we have saved labor and the cost of battery replacements.”

Since introducing its line of solar-powered LED aviation lights in late 2003, Carmanah quickly became the primary supplier to national defense, commercial and private aviation organizations worldwide.

State-of-the-art technology with robust design and high-performance output means the company's barricade lights are rugged, reliable and maintenance free. The fact that Carmanah lights can be installed and operated at one tenth the cost of a typical hardwired system also makes them a cost-effective alternative to many other conventional airfield lighting options.
