Did you know Sealite was the first to release the LED light source?
The design of the light source originated from a manufacturing agreement with Trinity House and was developed by the General Lighthouse Authorities (GLA) Research and Radionavigation Directorate. Sealite brought this product to market with our Universal LED Controller in 2013.
Since then, the heatsink design of the light source has been enhanced to allow us to drive our LEDs harder and deliver even brighter results.
Sealite’s proprietary Universal LED Controller provides the intelligence behind the light source’s smart operation. In combination, the system allows us to deliver great functionality and caters to a vast array of fixed or rotating lighthouse optics.
Why should Lighthouse Authorities consider upgrading their optics?
They offer Lighthouse Authorities the following benefits:
Why trust Sealite for your next lighthouse upgrade project?
There are many factors to consider when undertaking a restoration project. The process begins with an accurate site survey. Sealite uses our software to determine suitability for the Aids to Navigation application and the historic lens. During manufacture, we adhere to stringent ISO9001:2015 quality control standards with each SL-LED light source manufactured specifically to suit site requirements.
Once onsite, the installation is fine-tuned to meet the exact focal point within the lens. Lantern commissioning is a straightforward process using our proprietary Lantern Configuration Tool software. The service we offer is end-to end and our team of experts have:
Since 2013, our SL-LED systems have been used to upgrade over 70 lighthouses globally. Many are located across Australia, Europe, Asia, Africa and the United States. One of our most recent projects is the picturesque La Corbiere Lighthouse in the Channel Islands. Those familiar with the site will recognise that it presented some very unique challenges. Look out for our upcoming case study to learn why the La Corbiere lighthouse is so unique.
Sealite also commissions our SL-300 single and two tier long-range marine lanterns into applications where the original lens cannot be retained.

On behalf of Karachi Port I am pleased to acknowledge your good service and provision of the new SL-75 solar marine lanterns installed by your firm in the harbour channel at Karachi Port. The new lanterns are very feasible and useful and equipped with the latest navigational technology.

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 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.
