AIRPORTS IN THE SPOTLIGHT

January 2019

As 2018 drew to a close events at Gatwick airport stole the headlines, pushing plotting Parliamentarians and all talk of Brexit firmly off the news agenda for several days. The holidays are always a busy time for transport hubs and they are usually marred by some form of disruption – industrial action or adverse weather conditions. This Christmas it was rogue drones!

Christmas chaos

Chaos reigned at Gatwick as the airport closed for around seventeen hours whilst the authorities searched for the perpetrators. An estimated 140,000 passengers suffered cancellations or delays and around 1000 flights were disrupted over the 19th and 20th of December.

Whilst an incredulous general public wondered how such a relatively low-tech event could bring such a hi-tech operation to its knees the police and security forces were concerned about the vulnerability of other UK airports.

With a new military technology in place at Gatwick to address rogue drones, it looks as though the chance of further incidents has been eliminated.

Smooth operator

Technology plays a critical part in the smooth operation of an airport. It is used to improve the passenger experience, enhance security and streamline processes to increase productivity. The overall aim being to move people and their luggage through the airport as securely, efficiently and quickly as possible.

Passenger numbers are huge. According to a recent Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) report up to 12th December 2018 UK airports had handled a total of 290,044,519 passengers. Over 79 million through Heathrow and nearly 46 million through Gatwick.

From check-in and bag drop to security and passport control, investment in digital technology is enabling airports to handle increasing passenger numbers.

E-Passport Gates and Self-Service Kiosks

E-Passport gates, also known as Automated Border Control (ABC) gates are operated by the UK Border Force in 13 UK airport arrivals halls. Facial recognition technology is used to verify the user's identity against the data stored in the chip in their biometric passport.

Self-service kiosks are being used by airlines and airports for check-in, printing bag tags and enabling passengers to purchase additional services, such as seat upgrades and meal options, from the airline.

The benefits

Improved passenger experience by reducing queues and bottlenecks
Secure, speedy and seamless passenger processing
Enables airports to meet the challenge of increased passenger numbers by decentralising the processing of a significant number of people
Cost-effective
Better use of airport staff and resources
What if it all goes wrong?

As we all know technology is a wonderful thing until it goes awry! Whilst the benefits of E-Passport gates and self-service kiosks are undisputed their availability is critical. If the technology fails it all goes horribly wrong. Regular and preventative maintenance is key in reducing downtime.

Howe Green has supplied duct runs of floor access covers for many of the UK airports operating e-Passport gates and self-service kiosks, including Birmingham, Gatwick, Heathrow, Manchester and Stansted. The duct covers provide easy and safe access to cabling located under the flooring.

The Howe Green 7500 Series Medium-Duty Floor Access Duct Covers are the most suitable product for a busy airport environment. The 7500 Series is for use with all types of solid and hard flooring finishes and can accommodate up to 5-tonne pneumatic tyre wheel load (cars and light delivery vehicles).

The duct covers are very quick and easy to install into the flooring finish ensuring that there is the least possible disturbance to the smooth operation of the airport. When maintenance is required the covers can easily be removed using lifting keys or an access cover skate, again keeping any disruption to a minimum. The configuration of ducts can be tailor-made to suit your exact requirements.

The duct covers can be manufactured in aluminium or in stainless steel, which is preferable if a thicker non-wearing flooring is to be installed. There are options for a double seal, to provide the highest levels of hygiene and security, and for a 2-hour fire rating to BS476: Part 20: 1987.

New RIBA Accredited CPD from Howe Green Ltd

December 2018

Howe Green Ltd, the UK’s leading manufacturer of fabricated metal access covers, has recently launched a new CPD seminar.

The CPD – “Safe Access All Areas: Floor Access” has been accredited by RIBA and is listed on the RIBA CPD website – www.ribacpd.com.

The aim of the CPD is to help architects and specifiers gain a greater insight into the key considerations when specifying floor access covers.

Floor access covers provide a safe and easy way to overcome the challenge of accessing building services concealed under floors. As a small part of an overall construction project floor access covers are often an overlooked element of the building envelope. However, the consequences of specifying an access cover that is inappropriate for the environment where it is being installed can have far-reaching, and costly, implications. Choice of materials, such as stainless steel or aluminium, loading performance, floor finish and fire rating are examples of just some of the different design parameters that need to be considered when specifying floor access covers.

Health and safety remain at the forefront of specification in the construction industry. The CPD outlines how floor access covers can be moved safely and in line with the Manual Handling Operations Regulations (MHOR) 1992, CDM 2015 Regulations and Building Regulations.

Floor access covers may seem a simple, straightforward product to specify however getting the specification right for the intended use and ensuring the requirements for both performance and aesthetics are met can be fraught with complexity.
James Fisher, MD of Howe Green, explains, “For over 35 years Howe Green has built an incredible amount of expertise and knowledge in the niche area of floor access covers. This new CPD is an opportunity to share our learning with fellow building services professionals.

“We are committed to providing architects and specifiers with all the necessary tools to ensure the correct specification of access covers. The more information and resources that we can make available the better informed their decision making will be when it comes to specifying the right access cover for the installation environment."

Howe Green’s Business Development Managers, Chris George and Richard Fletcher, will be responsible for delivering the CPD. Classified under the RIBA Core Curriculum by design, construction and technology the hour-long seminar aims to cover general awareness of specifying floor access covers.

If you would like to find out more about the CPD or make a booking for your company please call Sue Marler on 01920 463 230 or email cpd@howegreen.co.uk.
