Gillinder Working to Maximize Performance of HIRL Lens Systems

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


Photometric performance is particularly crucial for the variable intensity steps of HIRL applications. Gillinder’s lens systems have been designed to fit most FAA certified non-LED HIRL fixtures to maximize this performance.
