Serge Ferrari products were recently specified by Rubb Buildings Ltd for use in constructing EasyJet’s new top-flight hangar facility at Gatwick Airport’s North Terminal.
The new facility is set to deliver 5,200 square metres of usable working floorspace, with a full LED lighting system, ventilation and LPG heating system. The twin span hangar measures 91.5m wide x 60m long, and features the very latest in innovative technology for the aviation industry.
Rubb Buildings Ltd specified both Précontraint 402 and 832 for use on the walls and roof of the hangar structure.
Précontraint 402 has many properties, which make it a smart choice for projects of this kind. These include excellent longevity and weldability, balancing weight with strength to make for the perfect material. Précontraint 402 is also flame retardant and is available in a range of colours and translucency ratings. Crucially, Précontraint 402 meets BS EN 15619:2014, which tells of its high quality.
Précontraint 832 also uses Serge Ferrari’s patented Précontraint technology, which gives it dimensional stability when used on projects of this kind. It also has a variety of other benefits over similar products, including thicker protection at the top of the yarn, which leads to higher longevity when faced with elements such as harsh UV rays and abrasive weather. It is also easy to clean in addition to meeting a range of important European Standards.
Ian Hindmoor, Managing Director at Rubb Buildings Ltd, said: “Rubb Buildings Ltd has a very proud history of providing high quality buildings for many applications. To maintain that trusted reputation, we were happy to use Serge Ferrari fabrics to help us deliver a first class working Rubb hangar system.”
This was a wise investment to ensure that the new Easyjet hangar lasts for maximum time into the future with low maintenance requirements.
