Chelsea Waterfront is located close and on the flight path toward Battersea Heliport and the towers are captured for airspace protection.

In addition to visual Medium Intensity Red Aviation Lighting at the highest points, an extra element of 850nm infrared lighting has been provided, for use with military and standard device Night Vision Goggles (NVGs). The IR lights perform to a high gain level, resulting in safe and consistent visual detection ranges.

All aviation fittings are constructed with marine grade chassis and end parts are A316 stainless steel components. CEL aviation lights are fitted to special bracketry at the top frame of the tower. After topping out in 2018 the towers were equipped with CEL aviation lighting complaint to CAA/ICAO/EASA Medium Intensity Lighting Type C and NVG infrared lighting for its quality, lightweight, robustness, control and network operation.
