Helipad Flood Lights illuminate hospital’s new roof-top helipad

Located in Victoria, Australia, Frankston Hospital’s new roof-top helipad has recently been completed with the installation of Avlite’s low-pro le helipad ood lights.

Helipad ood lighting was required to complement the existing mains-powered green perimeter lighting to enhance the safe and ef cient transfer of critical and emergency patients by Air Ambulance

at night time or in low visibility conditions.

Positioned on top of the hospital’s recently completed multi-story car park, the helipad lighting system needed to be operated by either the helicopter pilot via a two-way radio (PALC system) or by hospital staff on-site via a relay switch.

Avlite worked closely with Canberra-based consultants PSNK Aeronautical Services – to supply

12 of Avlite’s universal helipad flood light fixtures with a 240-12V power converter to fulfil the hospital’s project specifications for a fully integrated mains- powered 27m x 27m square-shaped Helipad Landing Site (HLS).

“As a consultant, engaging directly with the manufacturer allows us to understand first-hand how their products are designed and developed. Our visit to Avlite’s facility in Melbourne confirmed that procurement of their fit-for-purpose flood light fixture would be straightforward,” said Mr Peter Simpson – Director of PSNK Aeronautical Services”
