ICAO compliant frp fences for sensitive areas
FibreFENCE fencing systems are available in several models designed to satisfy different needs. They are all suitable to serve as external perimeter fence or internal facilities enclosure. On top, they all meet ICAO safety and frangibility prescriptions (ref. Aerodrome Design Manual, Part 6, Frangibility, 1st Edition 2006) and Aerodrome Design/Operations, Volume I, 4th Edition July 2004 airport infrastructures recommendations. All fences are supplied complete with radio-transparency, resistance to UV rays, and frost-defrost cycles certificates. Thanks to inherent great durability, maintenance is likely reduced to zero, with great economic benefits in the long term. FibreFENCE systems design can be tailored to comply with eventual Civil Aviation Authority additional specifications, often different from country to country. Furthermore, all FibreFENCE fences can be equipped with most popular intrusion detection systems on the market.
Airport fencing systems
|STEEL||WOOD||THERMO PLASTIC||F.R.P. FIBREFENCE||HIGH PERFORMANCE||MEDIUM PERFORMANCE||LOW PERFORMANCE|
|RADIO TRANSPARENCY||No interferences neither with landing aids devices (ILS) nor with Radars.|
|FRANGIBILITY||Strong enough to avoid intrusions, but fragile enough to reduce damages to airplanes in case of out-track landing.|
|VISUAL INTERFERENCE||Ease surrounding areas supervision, improve visual safety/security.|
|WILDLIFE INTRUSION CONTROL||Differential fence mesh size to prevent small wildlife intrusion without affecting on costs and visual interference.|
|ELECTRICAL INSULATION||Maximum passive safety in case of installations close to power stations or power lines.|
|MECHANICAL RESISTANCE||Resistance-to-weight ratio way better than steel.|
|CORROSION RESISTANCE||Suitable to face the worst environmental conditions, heavy rain, snow or moisture.|
|UV RAYS RESISTANCE||Strong UV resistance thanks to special additives added to matrix recipe.|
|HEAT RESISTANCE||Very low heat dilatation and deformation even at highest environmental temperatures.|
|INITIAL INVESTMENT||Low cost compared to other radio-transparent fencing solutions. Simple and fast installation.|
|MAINTENANCE COSTS||Maintenance likely unnecessary, lifespan virtually unlimited.|

The Isle of Man is a small island of only 588km² in the middle of the sea between Scotland and Ireland. There is a small airport called Ronaldsway, where Balfour Beatty Regional Civil Engineering, a UK and Ireland-based regional civil engineering business, recently completed a series of works. This included creating a promontory 200m long into the Irsh Sea to extend the runway end safety area to comply with latest international safety standards.
Despite its small dimensions, Republic of Tatarstan is one of the most economically developed regions of Russia, and probably the one growing faster today. Some of the Russian biggest petrochemical, chemical, machine building, aviation and helicopter industries are based within Tatarstan borders. Unsurprisingly Tatarstan’s capital airport is becoming nowadays one of the most important ones in whole Russia.
It is well known that Roissy-Charles de Gaulle Airport is the largest airport in France and one of the busiest in Europe. With more than 58 million passengers in 2010 it has benefited from huge investments in the last ten years, including new terminals, improvements to transport and a better connection network to deal with increasing numbers of passengers and traffic volumes.
