“I would like to make you aware of the recent success one of our composite fabrication teams had. They received the Quality Cup award in 2013 due in part to the wrinkle inspection process improvements.

They directed the credit towards The BRICK® LED Lights that were implemented on AFP’s 1-3 in December 2012. This is a great accomplishment and shows how something so small can make such a vast impact.”


Western Technology offers premium lighting solutions for the aviation industry. Our portable work lights are certified for all hazardous locations classified by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, including hangars and aircraft manufacturing facilities.

 Rechargeable, Portable LED Lights

 We understand how difficult it can be to install the right lighting in hard-to-reach, risky, or temporary setups. That’s why we have designed a range of purpose-built LED lights that are the toughest on the market but still easy for workers to transport, install, and use. These lights are built to withstand constant handling and adverse conditions, and they are safe to use in Class I Division 1, Class I Division 2, Class II Division 1, and Class II Division 2 vapor-proof environments. Our solutions are perfect for maintenance job lighting, aircraft manufacturing lighting, aerospace hangar lighting, and situations that demand adaptable products.

 World-Class Aviation Lighting Solutions

 The BRICK® is a versatile light designed to be carried by a worker, lighting up large, open spaces or confined areas. Our range also includes similar products that are smaller and compact but just as powerful, ensuring that you get the size you need for comfortable transportation and installation. The STRIKER™ is another popular tool in aircraft manufacturing lighting. It resembles a torch, and it’s certified and approved for hazardous locations. Its applications include inspection, lightweight and portable lighting in cramped spaces, and so much more.
