Providing Approach Masts to endure harsh desert conditions

Pollite > News > Providing Approach Masts to endure harsh desert conditions

Recently, Pollite worked on a project to supply an airbase in the UAE with a new approach. We partnered with a reputable company on their contract to design, supply, install and commission visual aids for the project, supplying the naval base with fibreglass approach masts for a full CAT I system.

After meeting at an Airport Show in Dubai and introducing the company to our products, they knew we were the right partners for their project.

Our products are tested and approved to withstand temperatures of over 50⁰C and with their gel coat are able to endure harsh UV light without changing colour or fading. This was an important factor as temperatures in the UAE can reach a whopping 50⁰C so they needed a product that was guaranteed to withstand the heat. We were also the top choice for partnership as our fibreglass approach masts provide ultimate frangibility, are lighter than aluminium, and easier to install. They are also corrosion resistant, an important consideration in a desert environment with masses of sand being blasted at them daily, so the products needed to be long-standing.
