In 2016, Orga launched the world’s first LED illuminated windsock with an integrated aviation obstruction light. This state-of-the-art signalling product is part of our helideck lighting system range and maximises offshore helicopter safety for hazardous areas. The illuminated windsocks are designed to give pilots a clear indication of wind speed and direction while taking off and landing in all weather conditions, during day and night.
Why do you need a helideck windsock?
In hazardous areas you need to rely on products that can assure your safety. Orga’s LED illuminated windsock offers a precision-cut reflective beam-shaping lens and prisms that redirect light to internally illuminate the windsock. This prevents pilots from being exposed to glare from floodlights. If an aircraft warning light is required, the AOL function can be activated without the need for additional cabling. In addition, high-grade materials and cutting-edge components, such as the sealed unit to protect sensitive electronics, along with excellent thermal management, ensure the highest level of reliability and durability. At Orga you get the sustainable competitive advantage you need in the offshore oil and gas industry.
The functionalities and explosion proof characteristics of the LED illuminated helideck windsock make it perfectly suited for use in hazardous environments. The heliport windsock complies with UK Civil Aviation Authority (UK CAA) CAP437 Standards for Offshore Helicopter Landing Areas and International Civil Aviation Authority (ICAO) Annex 14 specifications.
