LED Hangar Lighting Design

Aircraft Hangar Lighting

Few indoor lighting projects have such demanding lighting requirements at such a large scale as aircraft hangar lighting. High mounting heights, high lux levels and excellent uniformity over large areas are required to meet CAA and international aviation requirements for inspection and maintenance work.

Wireless Lighting Controls suitable for Aircraft Hangar

Wireless Lighting Controls suitable for Aircraft Hangars.

Kellwood's wireless lighting controls in an aircraft hangar can offer numerous benefits, such as energy efficiency, cost savings, operational efficiency, improved maintenance, and scalability.

What Kellwood LIGHTING Offers Aircraft Hangars

  • Large energy saving potential
  • Accurate design to meet CAA requirements
  • Peace of mind from high quality fittings
  • Range of outputs, beam angles & accessories
  • Optional Installation


These tough requirements provide an ideal opportunity for careful design and superior products to outshine the merely average. Long operating hours and high lux levels mean that relatively small differences in product wattage can add up to significant differences in running cost. Intelligent lighting controls are often useful where there is good ambient lighting and areas with irregular usage.
