Terminal buildings, airport parking lots, runways… Airports have very special security needs. Effective security fencing for the infrastructure in terminals and airports is also a necessity.
Airport car parks
Airport car parks are secured with security fencing. It has a deterrent effect – it indicates that access is reserved for authorised persons. The fence is robust, but has a decorative and elegant appearance.
Access to the car park can be denied during certain periods of time using barriers or gates.
Terminal buildings are an area with increased security risk. The choice here falls on a fence with a delaying effect in order to prevent unauthorised access of the general public to restricted areas. Turnstiles guarantee controlled access of staff. Bollards prevent terrorist attacks and access of unauthorised vehicles.
Service vehicles may load and unload materials via automatic gates, bollards and barriers.
The area of the runway must be secured against undesired intruders and wild animals in order to ensure the security of both airplanes and passengers. Choices in residential areas must be made with regard to the nature of the dwellings. Gabions, for example, can ensure noise reduction without impairing aesthetics. This approach minimises the visual and noise disturbance for the residents.
