Gillinder Glass Offers New Optical Lens System for L-862 HIRL Applications
4/13/2017

 

PORT JERVIS, N.Y. – Runway Edge Lighting (REL), specifically High Intensity Runway Lighting (HIRL), is considered one of the most demanding applications in airfield lighting. Gillinder Glass’s new line of L-862 and L-862E products meet those demands with rugged mechanical durability, superior thermal shock capabilities and the best photometric performance currently in the marketplace.

Photometric performance is crucial for the variable intensity steps of the HIRL. The REL must outline the edges of a runway during periods of darkness or limited visibility conditions.  Gillinder’s new lens systems have been designed to fit most FAA certified HIRL fixtures currently being offered in the market to maximize this performance.

In addition to the L-862 applications, Gillinder now offers an L-862E system for Runway Threshold applications. These red/green outer lens refractors meet all the requirements of L-862E and is the best performing system available for photometric, mechanical and thermal performance. This highly specialized system is engineered to clearly signify end of runways for arriving or departing aircraft and to indicate thresholds to approaching aircraft.

Gillinder’s new REL lens system consists of two inner half lenses and an outer lens refractor, which can easily be certified to meet the FAA Advisory Circular 150-5345-46E, MIL-DTL-7989B and SAE-AS25050.
