Airports & Transport

Airports & Transport

Airports are some of the largest man-made structures in the world, with vast open flowing spaces, constantly varying numbers of people, restaurants, shops, offices and transport links. The effects of doors, lighting, windows and complex roof shapes create a complex task for HVAC engineers who are also cooperating with ambitious structural designers who want to specifically improve energy efficiency and sustainability.

New emphasis is also being given to all the different elements that can contribute to more energy efficient buildings, such as re-using wasted energy and incorporating on-site renewable energy such as solar panel or smaller wind turbines. Spiralite ductwork is ideally suited to help achieve these goals as it generates greater thermal airflow and energy efficiency with lower pressure drops. There is complete design flexibility in terms of dimensions, shapes & lengths, and aesthetically enhanced finishes in open-to-view environments.

Spiralite’s emphasis on saving energy, cutting costs and reducing environmental impact comes to the fore in these circumstances. Our ductwork has been incorporated into the energy efficiency measures designed into Terminal 2, which is Heathrow’s latest and most efficient BREEAM-certified terminal building.
