Gable Airfield Markers
Gable Airfield Markers are rotationally-moulded using UV-stabilised polyethylene, providing exceptionally long life without the need for painting.
The Gable Airfield Markers can be used on unsealed runways to define the graded portion of the runway strip. Gable markers are the preferred type of marker used in this situation and are placed along the edges of the runway at a distance that must not exceed 180m as per the CASA Manual of Standards, Part 139 – Aerodromes, Section 8.2.1.
To secure the gable against prop wash and jet blast it can be secured with pegs to hold it in position.
By keeping the manufacturing process in-house Avlite achieves better value for customers, superior quality standards and faster delivery than many competitors.
Gable Airfield Markers are made from high grade, UV-stabilised, virgin polyethylene ensures a robust product with a life expectancy of up to 20 years.
The polyethylene material offers enormous benefits over fibreglass models, including longer life expectancy and less servicing. No painting is required because the gable markers are manufactured using coloured pigments which permeate all the way through the polyethylene.
Moulded from 100% recyclable materials this allows the gable marker to be recycled at the end of its working life.
Gable Airfield Markers are made in Australia by Avlite and are designed to comply with CASA Manual of Standards Part 139 – Aerodromes, Section 8.2.1
