  The Use and Common Fixation Methods of Marine Navigation aid
  Sea lighthouses: These towering structures are usually located near the coastline or on important sea routes, providing powerful light signals for ships to safely navigate through complex or dangerous waters.
  Maritime buoys: These buoys may be fixed or floating, depending on the usage scenario. They provide the captain with information on the location of the navigational route or hazardous area through a series of fixed devices or floating on the water surface.

  Navigation signs: These signs are usually set up in public waters to indicate information such as water levels and hazardous areas. They provide the captain with key navigation information such as the name, direction, and distance of the waterway, which helps the ship navigate safely and efficiently.

  Marine navigation aid are very important maritime safety facilities, which can guide ships on their routes in harsh weather conditions. The installation methods of marine navigation lights usually include fixing them on deep-sea supports, fixing them on the seabed, and embedding them into the coastline.           

  1. Deep sea bracket is a commonly used installation method for marine navigation lights, which is a pier frame composed of steel structures. Deep sea brackets are installed in the deep sea far from the coastline, and the beacon lights installed on top are usually fixed to the pillars with hooks or metal fasteners with high tensile strength.

  2. Seabed fixation is another installation method for marine navigation lights. Generally, the installation of seabed fixed navigation lights consists of three parts: foundation, bracket, and lighting fixtures. The foundation is made of steel plates or reinforced concrete, which can withstand the impact of strong winds and waves, and can resist the corrosion of seawater; The bracket is used to support the lighting fixture; Luminaires, on the other hand, transmit light into the ocean and can be lightboxes, lanterns, or light bulbs.

  3. The installation method embedded into the coastline is to build a dock on the coastline, and the navigation lights installed on the dock are usually fixed to the dock with hooks or metal fasteners with high tensile strength, and the wind and wave resistance of the dock should be strengthened to ensure the reliable operation of the navigation lights.

  These methods ensure that the beacon lights can be firmly fixed in the appropriate position, providing effective guidance and safety protection for night vessels.

  In summary, there are several installation methods for maritime beacon lights, including deep-sea bracket fixation, seabed fixation, and embedding on the coastline. There are many differences in installation methods, but the installation requirements are equally strict, and the special nature of the marine environment must be considered to ensure the safety and reliability of maritime navigation aid.
