GLASS LENSES FOR EXTERIOR AND INTERIOR AIRCRAFT LIGHTING

Exterior Aircraft Lighting

The emergence of LEDs and other lighting technologies has introduced complex challenges into the aerospace industry. Our extensive glass portfolio includes clear and colored filter glass formulations designed to meet FAA, MIL, and ICAO regulatory standards for both incandescent and LED light sources.

COMPLEX GLASS MOLDING FOR OPTIMAL AERODYNAMICS

From the wing panel to the position lights - every component of an aircraft must be fine-tuned and engineered to ensure maximum performance and efficiency. Our specialized manufacturing process enables us to mold glass into complex contoured shapes while meeting rigorous dimensional tolerances. You don’t have to rely on expensive fabrication and machining costs to achieve optimal aerodynamic forms.

BOROSILICATE GLASS: TOUGH MATERIAL FOR TOUGH ENVIRONMENTS

Throughout the long life of an aircraft it will endure punishment from harsh environments. There is not time for broken parts and repairs. Choose borosilicate glass for your exterior lighting designs and extend your average time-on-wing. Unlike most polymer lenses, borosilicate glass is resistant to:

  • UV degradation
  • Chemical corrosion
  • Abrasion from fine particulate
  • Thermal stress

Our custom manufacturing capabilities paired with our extensive knowledge of glass science and optical engineering enable us to provide comprehensive solutions for the most complex lighting designs.
