Expert Cable Chasing and AGL Installation across UK airfields

Airfield ground lighting ensures optimal visibility and safety for airfields across the UK, with upgrading to modern LED units offering significant cost-saving potential over time. We offer an all-in-one service that involves AGL installation, cable chasing and chase sealing, utilising our floor sawing, joint sealing, and diamond drilling capabilities:

  1. Our experts install AGLs in both military and commercial runways using our unique double drill core – creating bespoke and precise diamond cut holes to house your airfield ground lights. The team are specially trained to deliver precision alignment and weatherproof sealing fitted to CAA regulation.
  2. We’ll dry the joint with a hot air lance, using a mixture of LPG and compressed air. Next, our team will use a percussion drill to form a 26mm hole at the end of the joint, meeting with the AGL and connecting it with the network. A qualified electrical contractor then installs the cables within the joint.
  3. We’ll then seal the joint with N2 bitumen, or 95/25 oxidised bitumen, depending on whether the area is going to be planed afterwards for the overlay of new asphalt.

Castle & Pryor brings three decades of experience to each job. Our prompt and friendly team will deliver reliable, efficient, and compliant lighting solutions to elevate the safety and performance of your airfield operations.

Decades of Proven Airfield Experience

Castle and Pryor worked with Morgan Sindall for an important project at London’s Heathrow Airport. The objective was to install new airfield ground lighting on the taxiway at Terminal 4. The existing halogen lights were upgraded to energy-efficient LED lights, aligning with environmental standards and reducing costs. We utilised our specialised skills and equipment, including our unique double drill core, to create precise holes for the lights. The project was completed within the agreed timeframe, and approved by all stakeholders.
