Scotland, UK – May 2017 — The Northern Lighthouse Board is the General Lighthouse Authority for Scotland and the Isle of Man and provides a vital safety service to the mariner and their mission is ‘To deliver a reliable, efficient and cost-effective Aids to Navigation service for the benefit and safety of all Mariners’.
The navigation aid contract was awarded based on a thorough technical and commercial evaluation of Sealite’s SL-300 and SL-155 series lanterns conducted by the NLB. The award covers the SL-300-1D5 as a long-range lantern with 21NM visible range and a 1.5degree vertical distribution, suitable for a range of day and night time applications.
Sealite’s SL-300 Series was launched in 2014 at the IALA Conference with the goal of achieving the industry’s most efficient long range lantern. The high intensity lantern was updated in 2015 with a new 1.5D lens to provide a class-leading range and performance of over 180,000cd luminous intensity white. Coupled with its small form factor, the lantern provides significant advantages over traditional larger lens stack assemblies.
Sealite are excited to work with the Northern Lighthouse Board and provide reliable aids to navigation lighting for Scotland.
As one of your new distributors (Belize and Honduras, Waller Marine Belize LTD), I would like to express my congratulations to you and your people in providing reliable, dependable and inexpensive products. Formerly we were distributors for a Canadian made product but these were found to be too expensive for the market and also offered only difficult and complicated programming. Our first order of lights from you (SL15 ™S) took only four days to arrive from Aussie Land, when I opened the box they were still flashing. I tested a SL60 (white) for four days (steady on) before it required a recharge…remarkable. I will be placing another order with Dana shortly keep up the good work.

We choose to sell Sealite … this is a long story, well we treat Sealite as our own and the relationship we have developed with Jeff and Chris and their attitude and commitment towards growing Sealite to this stage is remarkable. We feel at home when talking to them and the staff of Sealite and this in turn gives us more security and strength in selling products in India.

I just wanted to say thank you for the light and bracket Sealite supplied to Birkenhead Marina. As the other lights (old ones) need new batteries I will be replacing them with new lights from Sealite and the same brackets that you supplied with the light we received last week … Your product is excellent and the system of setting the light is good also. Thanks again for all your trouble.
