Located in Croydon, South London Leon House residential tower reaches a height of 71m with a total of 22 levels when built in 1966.

The imposing tower is captured for aircraft warning lighting for en-route obstacles. The building has been equipped with medium intensity red steady lighting and includes a UPS battery backup for a minimum of 3hr period in the unlikely event of the critical power becoming unoperational.

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

Medium Intensity lighting was deployed at the roof level 22 only. All obstruction lighting is LED based due to its long lifetime and reliability. The red aviation lights are controlled and monitored and system linked to the tower’s BMS (building management system).
