As part of a major redevelopment to the premium car park at Liverpool’s John Lennon Airport, Twinfix have installed a 3m wide walkway that enables continuous under-cover access from the car park into the airport building.
The 35m long mono-pitched structure is manufactured from aluminium powder coated dark grey (RAL 7037). Aluminium is an ideal choice in this application as it won’t rust if it gets the odd knock from a suitcase, neither will it require painting again, so an annual wash down means it will keep its good looks for years. Twinfix Multi-Link-Panels glazed with 25mm clear multiwall polycarbonate were used for the roof. As these panels meet the non-fragile requirements outlined in ACR001:2014 the airport management have peace of mind knowing that any unauthorised access on to the walkway roof should not result in falls through the glazing.
Main Contractors for the project, Cambrianway Ltd of Wallasey, approached Twinfix in November last year, looking for installation in December. John Gallagher of Cambrianway says:
“We used Twinfix because we were confident that their part of the project would run to time. Everything went well. It was fitted on the agreed date and installation was actually faster than they said it would be.”
The exceptionally quick turn-round required meant the Twinfix team had to pull out all the stops, with meticulous co-ordination between their sales, design, planning and installation departments. But their many years’ experience paid off and the walkway was installed on time, ready for the Christmas rush at the airport!
