Navigation Light Features

Basic Features:

  • Complete line of lights and accessories available for marking of bridges and piers, manufactured to meet or exceed Coast Guard recommendations
  • Rugged cast marine-alloy aluminum (or optional marine-alloy bronze) for decades of durability and consistent service in demanding maritime environments
  • Tempered marine fresnel glass
  • Porcelain lamp bases with nickel-plated brass shell, mounted with shock-absorbing grommets
  • Standard lamps provide light output several times greater than Coast Guard minimums for dramatically improved visibility
  • Standard lamps rated for 20,000 hours each (compared to typical 500 to 1000 hours for most other lamps) – DRAMATICALLY reduces labor for servicing lights – and lamps are economically priced, too
  • Dual-lamp arrangement automatically switches to second light when first burns out – includes lamp out indication circuit to take the guess work out of light service
