Al Bahr Towers – Abu Dhabi, UAE – Aircraft Warning Lighting

Posted on: January 26th, 2017


Located opposite Mangrove National Park in Abu Dhabi City, United Arab Emirates. The architecture of Al-Bahr towers is Islamic inspired.

These 29 story towers support an Eco design feature that monitors the suns direct intensity to the buildings that result in rising daytime internal floor temperatures. The façade which is made up of external panels covering the towers are controlled by the building management system to automatically open and close the glass panels of the façade for increased shading.

Whilst receiving Energy and Environmental honours in the Emporis Skyscraper Awards, CEL aviation were selected to supply the Aircraft Warning Lighting for its quality and high performance in the demanding local temperatures.

The Contarnex Medium Intensity ICAO Type-C obstruction lighting was designed to interface with the Building Management System complete with battery back-ups. With extended LED lifetime, long warranties and very low power consumption complete with a compact lightweight design the warning light system was quickly approved for use fulfilling the required energy and environment credentials.

The latest generation of networked aircraft warning lights are being specified and deployed in numerous tall building installations globally. More information can be found at www.contarnex.com

Al Bahr Towers were designed by AHR (formerly Aedas UK), and constructed by Carillion.
