Obstruction LED Lighting Systems

Obstruction lighting has very specific standards. The Federal Aviation Administration(FAA) has stringent regulations for cell towers and utility communications towers and marine solar lanterns have different requirements. Broadcast towers require LED obstruction lights designed for the environment. Modern obstruction lighting needs to be reliable and energy-efficient. You need the right solution for your industry and application when installing obstruction lighting.

Obstruction Lighting Installation

Any structure that is over 200 feet typically requires marking per the FAA, Federal Communications Commission (FCC), and International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). This includes towers, antennas, buildings, cranes, wind turbines, amusement park rides, and more. Some structures require red lighting, others white, and some require dual-lighting.


Lighting is an important element that marks structures, identifying them at night to prevent dangerous aviation conditions. Obstruction lighting includes navigational aids at sea. No matter what type of structure you need to light, Slatercom Lighting has the solution.

Our team can successfully find the solution for your lighting needs. We consider where the location and what the legal requirements are in that particular state or city. The FAA requires buildings and other obstructions near an airport to be marked with a steady burning red light and dual lighting is required on other structures. When buildings are being constructed, obstruction lights are required if it meets the height requirement. We consider all industry standards as we design the right solution.

LED technology for obstruction lighting offers many benefits over conventional lights. They can be customized with different light arrays, with high brightness. LEDs have a long service life, are energy-efficient, and don’t generate as much heat as traditional lighting, which makes them more environmentally friendly while saving money. Although LED lights can have an upfront investment, long term, they save you money.
