Located in Islington this tall tower residential development has reached a height of 150m with a total of 43 levels.

This significant height of Tower 1 is captured for aircraft warning lighting for en-route obstacles. The building has been equipped with CEL medium intensity red steady lighting including 3hr UPS backup.

CEL aviation lighting specialists were recommended, as they offer advisory, the necessary design expertise and compliant lighting products to achieve the required aviation safeguarding from aircraft and helicopter traffic routing nearby.

EASA Medium Intensity lighting was deployed at the roof level 43. All obstruction lighting is LED based offering long operational lifetime and reliability. The Contarnex red aviation lights are controlled and monitored and system linked to the tower’s BMS – Building Management System.
