AFCENT Installs Avlite Systems Solar Powered LED Taxiway and Obstruction Lights

The United States Air Forces Central, commonly known as AFCENT, have chosen the Avlite AV70 solar powered LED taxiway and obstruction lights for installation at Al Udeid Air Base in Qatar.

Pilot Mountain, NC., Nov.2 /-- The United States Air Forces Central, commonly known as AFCENT, have chosen the Avlite AV70 solar powered LED taxiway and obstruction lights for installation at Al Udeid Air Base in Qatar. Aviation Renewables, a strategic partner of Avlite Systems and the industry leader in providing renewable airfield lighting and power solutions, worked closely with local representatives while meeting the operating needs of AFCENT's strategic air base. AFCENT required 150 solar taxiway and obstruction lights that would stand up to temperatures which exceed 60 degrees Celsius, persistent sand blasting, physical impact and if needed, easy battery replacement. The AV70 was chosen as the industry's most qualified solar LED taxiway and obstruction light capable of operating in hot, demanding conditions with a custom aviation lens and 3 year 100% product warranty.


The AV70 series is the base model of US ARMY and Air Force portable airfield lighting systems used for global combat and CONUS operations. By providing unlimited years of operation with the industry's most complete technology offering from Aviation Renewables and Avlite Systems, Al Udeid will benefit from a rugged, maintenance free lighting solution that will surpass previous installed systems. Al Udeid Air Base is a military base west of Doha, Qatar. It is host to a forward headquarters of United States Central Command, and home to No. 83 Expeditionary Air Group RAF and the 379th Air Expeditionary Wing of the USAF.

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
