How We Help Our Customers
Established in Maryland in the 1970s, United Crane and Rigging rents and sells crane and rigging equipment to clients across the northeast United States. It sought new solutions for obstruction lighting, a key aspect of the business that ensures equipment is safely and properly marked for aircraft. Installing an AC-powered light can take up valuable time, and maintenance can end up costing several hundred dollars. Plus, on jobs where the crane runs on a generator, the generator can only run during the day. Technicians would need to run power to the base of the crane to plug in the hardwired lights at night, or else they wouldn’t be compliant.
Our OL800 offered the FAA compliance United Crane and Rigging required, as well as the GPS synchronization he needed for simultaneous flashing. Despite previously trying other solar lighting company’s lights, they chose Carmanah because of the rugged design and the out-of-the-box setup.

“These lights have solved all my issues. This is the last obstruction light you’ll ever need—for an affordable price, at that.”
