Air Terminal

Air_Terminal

Cover Technology Air Terminals (ATOCs), in aluminium and PVC, have an integrated, modular structure designed to accommodate personnel in transit, capable of providing check-in, check-out and luggage handling areas, also thanks to the accessories and equipment included in the supply package. The dimensions and characteristics of large covers for air terminals can be customised to suit defence, civil defence, airport or flying club requirements. The AIR TERMINAL construction consists of an aluminium and steel frame covered with technical PVC fabric or sandwich panels. The choice of materials allows shipping low weights and compact volumes, rapid assembly and impressive resistance to weather loads. The AIR TERMINAL system’s main feature is its total adaptability to the user’s needs in terms of the number of passengers and amount of luggage to be handled. The structure is completed with the various access points (doors and openings) and automated or manual check-in, check-out and luggage handling systems.

Side height Minimum 04.00 metres / Maximum 07.00 metres
Wind resistance Minimum 25 m/sec / Maximum 31 m/sec
Snow resistance Minimum 60 daN/m² / Maximum 400 daN/m²
Cover fire resistance class Self-extinguishing – Flame Retardant Class 2
Operating temperature -30 °C  /  +70 °C

AIR TERMINAL structures are of modular design, allowing:

  • VARIOUS CONFIGURATIONS (field air terminal, permanent air terminal, and military air terminal)
  • INSTALLATION ON DIFFERENT SURFACES (asphalt, concrete, dirt, or sand) thanks to a special anchor system (anchoring with threaded bars, plates and nails or spiral bars)
  • Design with a SPECIFIC SNOW BEARING CAPACITY, which ranges from 60 kg/sq. m for the basic structure up to 400 kg/sq. m for areas with very high snowfall
  • Provision of CE MARKING of the structural components in compliance with the EN 1090-1:2009+A1:2011 standard thanks to Cover Technology’s accreditation.

It is also important to note that structures are designed and constructed in compliance with the Italian Ministerial Decree dated 14.01.2008 (known as the Technical Construction Standards or NTC2008 with return time Tr 50 years) and in compliance with the Eurocodes.

The supporting frame consists of extruded aluminium alloy profiles, creating a lightweight structure that withstands all weather conditions. Roofs and side walls are in flame-retardant, waterproof, very tough, PVC fabric. Naturally, there is a very wide selection of materials to suit the different uses and locations of structures. The main materials used in construction of AIR TERMINAL structures are:

Supporting surface Plinth not required

MATERIALS
Main structure components Aluminium alloy profiles
Base plate elements Hot-dip galvanised steel
Cover Modular sheets of Class 2 Flame-Retardant PVC / Sandwich panels
Side walls, if required Modular sheets of Class 2 Flame-Retardant PVC / Sandwich panels
Doors or openings, if required Folding vehicle doors / personnel doors
Metal cables Plastic-coated steel cable
Anchor systems for concrete surfaces Threaded bars fixed with structural vinyl/epoxy resins
Anchor systems for firm ground and asphalt surfaces Steel nails driven into the ground
Anchor systems for loose ground Continuous spiral coils or rods

Apart from the STANDARD PVC sheeting, the cover may be in:

  • PVC fabrics with blackout treatment for sun protection
  • Thick PVC fabrics (strong cover)
  • Low-emission (silver-coated) or insulated PVC fabrics
  • PVC fabrics with special coating

Cover Technology over the years has realized several installations, please find below some related examples.

  • For the airport of Verona, Cover Technology has manufactured an air terminal for departures and arrivals with sizes of 25x50m.
