According to regulations from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), any structure that exceeds 200’ above ground level is required to be properly marked with aviation warning lights. Tall structures like towers, industrial chimneys & smokestacks, and even wind turbines will need to adhere to minimum requirements in order to meet safety regulations.
The height of the structure is only one factor that must be considered when choosing how to place aviation warning lights. Structure diameter, weather, terrain, proximity to airports, and other considerations will ultimately determine the required obstruction lighting setup.
Industrial Access can help establish the proper aviation warning light configuration to keep you up to code and within regulations. These warning systems require special attention as regulations continue to evolve. Since requirements may vary depending on your location, the type of structure, and environmental concerns, it’s best to consult with a professional that has specific knowledge of regulation & installation requirements.
