With a highly skilled installation team adept at completing a variety of airside projects, from simple luminaire replacement projects through to complex runway development and refurbishment projects, atg airports have a team able to work in the toughest environments to the tightest of deadlines.

The new IRIS range of runway LED lighting uses intelligent DLO technology to maximise the life cycle of the luminaire.
atg airports’ installation teams provide a total management service for airside installations.
The SmartControl and Sonnis systems are designed specifically for the airport, ensuring potential development plans can be planned and require quick and easy modificiations.
Clearway LED signs provide efficient and virtually maintenance free guidance for aircraft.

atg airports’ project services portfolio includes airfield lighting installation, navigational aids installation and commissioning, bulk fuel electrical systems, apron lighting, fixed ground power systems and docking guidance systems.

Airfield lighting control systems

atg airports provide a range of airfield control solutions, all of which are designed to maximise the efficiency of the available infrastructure.

Representing the latest development of the Smart suite of control system products, the SmartMini has been specifically designed for airports with lower traffic volumes that seek a creative yet practical solution to complex airfield challenges.

Airfield guidance signs

The clearway range of airfield guidance signs are based around a well-proven design currently in operation at airports around the world. Incorporating the latest LED guidance sign technology, atg ‘s clearway signs are available as mandatory or information signs, illuminated runway distance markers (IRDM) and illuminated stand number indicator boards (SNIB). RHAG markers are used primarily for military operations and non-illuminated retro-reflective signs.

Both the thyristor controlled micro 100 and the sinewave output micro 200 regulators are in operation at airports across the globe, utilising modern electronics and FAA style cubicles to maintain a prominent position in the marketplace.
