Airport cables

The smooth running and safe operation of the world’s airports, both civil and military, is critical given today’s ever-increasing demand for efficient and effective business and holiday travel and specialist defence requirements. Eland Cables’ range of airport cables is designed with operational reliability in mind, and covers all safety-critical applications, from airfield lighting and high-speed data cabling for air traffic control, to emergency power connectors.

Our primary circuit and secondary circuit airfield lighting cables adhere to the standards set by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO), as well as national standards 

including the Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) and Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) amongst others. 

They are designed to withstand exposure to water, UV radiation, defrosting fluids, oils and greases, to ensure the continuous operation of lighting systems alongside runways, taxiways and airport buildings.

Our extra-flexible [400Hz] airplane ground support power cables provide a critical link between Ground Power Units (GPU) and aircraft in airports around the world. You can see dozens of our orange cables powering aircraft every time you fly in and out of London’s Heathrow Airport.

Supplying cables for key applications around the world

Our airport cables solutions cover the full spectrum, from cable design to meet specific applications' requirements and national standards to international logistics to site. Recent projects include the supply of low voltage cables to ABB for new control panels in Dubai International Airport and low-smoke zero-halogen medium voltage cables powering Paphos International Airport in Cyprus. Other projects include the design of customised telecommunications cable meeting the specific requirements of the Department of Civil Aviation for Yangon International Airport, in Myanmar.

In Angola, we are involved in most of the country’s airport projects. These include recent work at Catumbela

International Airport, Namibe International Airport and Luanda International Airport, where we supplied fire-resistant power cables, medium voltage cables, fibre optic, control cables and cable accessories covering various parts of the airport including the runways, control towers, fire stations, roads, substations and terminal buildings. We also offer the full range of BASEC and LPCB-approved enhanced fire performance cables that have been installed in Terminal 1 at Manchester International Airport.

Our technical expertise and reliability have made Eland Cables the partner of choice for the supply of cables to major airport projects around the world.
