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.

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.
