ILED Aquarius CIRCLE-H Helideck Lighting System

300 x 300

Helicopter deck signalisation lighting has now taken off into a new direction with the Tideland CIRCLE-H Lighting System.

Throughout the industry, it is now fully agreed and accepted that the old method of illuminating the TD/PM Circle and H with flood lights results in the common dangerous problem of creating the disorientating “black hole” effect and at the same time being a source of glare to the helicopter pilots.

Developed with close guidance from the CAA and HCA certified as in full accordance with the requirements of CAP 437, Tideland’s CIRCLE-H TD/ PM Lighting System provides the optimum solution to these problems. Cleanly and clearly indicating the TD/PM Circle and H, the Tideland CIRCLE-H is the only fully certified system of its type – providing optimised safety – without compromise.

The unique integrated mounting plate is able to be customised to suit specific requirements and with a choice of fixing and installation methods to suit all deck types, the CIRCLE-H can be installed as a standalone system or as a fully integrated total helideck lighting and status light safety system solution.

In line with CAP 437 requirements, our CIRCLE-H system has being independently tested and certified – by DEKRA – Attestation of Conformity No: 2168390.01 AOC

CIRCLE-H is less than 25 mm high, even with the mounting plate. The system is comprised of just 4 main parts. The light unit is easily connected by an Ex-certified, patented plug system. Only cables and conduits are variable – to the D-Value of the helideck.

Tideland’s CIRCLE-H system is manufactured from marine grade aluminium – which is by far and away the best material for marine applications and for temperature management control. The one-piece mounting plate is designed so that it can easily be adapted to suit all types of deck construction.
