Innovative enclosures specified for airport approach lighting project

Fibox was delighted to learn that its state-of-the-art Arca enclosures had been specified to house the critical components installed in the new approach lighting system recently installed at the City of Derry Airport, located on the south bank of Lough Foyle in the North West of Ireland.

The Fibox Arca enclosures were purchased from Ilecsys, Stockport, and installed by Airfield Services, a division of Edward Dewhurst, a family owned, private company which for over 100 years has worked tirelessly to build a solid reputation within the electrical engineering industry. Airfield Services supplied and installed the new approach lighting, cables, poles, isolating transformers and cable management onto the new gantry which serves the airport's runway. The series circuit isolating transformers and primary connections were installed into Fibox Arca enclosures to protect the delicate electrical systems from the harsh weather conditions over the Lough and provide ease of future maintenance for airport technicians.

Installers and panel builders who are supplying equipment for use in extremely harsh and demanding environments are now aware that for the first time there is now available a high grade glass filled polycarbonate alternative to sheet steel cabinets which will corrode in such adverse conditions.

Steve Gallon, Fibox managing director in the UK explains: "The market has been telling us for a long time that there is a need for a viable alternative to the thousands of sheet steel enclosures being installed every year in environments for which they are simply not designed. Arca took two years to develop and we firmly believe we now have a range which has all the features of sheet steel but all the benefits of high grade thermoplastic."
