High performance doors and frames.

Enhancing Airport Facilities with Special-Lite’s High-Performance Doors and Frames

When managing the unique challenges of airport facilities, from high traffic to stringent security requirements, one name stands out when choosing an airport door: Special-Lite. With a legacy of excellence dating back to 1991, when the Hybrid FRP Door (SL-17) and Aluminum Insert Frame combination was installed at the American Airlines Terminal in Chicago O’Hare International Airport, Special-Lite has been an exceptional and reliable partner for airports throughout the United States.

Airport Facility Challenges: Navigating High-Traffic Environments

Airports are bustling hubs with a constant stream of passengers, staff, and vehicles. These high-traffic environments require doors and frames that can withstand the test of time and maintain functionality. Security is paramount in airport operations, with a need to safeguard against potential threats. Frequent cleaning and sanitizing are essential to ensure hygiene standards are met. Furthermore, the challenge of climate control necessitates doors and frames that can effectively maintain a comfortable interior regardless of external weather conditions. Maintenance is also critical, given that airports operate around the clock, making downtime a costly concern. Doors and frames should be designed for easy maintenance to minimize disruptions.

Transforming Airport Facilities: Before and After

Consider the transformation of Sacramento International Airport’s Terminal Service Entrance. 

Before installing Special-Lite commercial doors, facilities teams focused on damage and maintenance commonly associated with hollow metal doors in high-traffic areas. After Special-Lite doors were installed, the need for repainting was eliminated. Integrated weathering options also helped save energy and money. That’s a flight we would book any day!
