neaco’s roof walkways featured at King Abdulaziz International Airport
neaco’s roof walkways have been installed at world’s largest single standing seam roofing project at King Abdulaziz International Airport in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
Our products are featured on a major development involving the airport’s new terminal building, railway station, air traffic control centre and the main fire and rescue facility, requiring a combination of straight, tapered and curved roofs with high acoustic and thermal performance specifications. The project required the engineering, procurement and construction of 350,000 square metres of Kalzip standing seam roofing – the largest single Kalzip project ever undertaken – which includes neaco’s aluminium open grille walkways and associated handrails.
neaco’s Managing Director, Alan Green, said: “Our aluminium modular grilles and handrails started attracting specifications for airport developments in the early nineties and demand has steadily grown ever since. We have achieved a global market reach with a range of access walkways and associated handrails which have been specified at some of the world’s leading airports, including London Heathrow and Hong Kong. King Abdulaziz International Airport is the latest example – in terms of sheer scale of product installed it represents our largest-ever airport specification.”
neaco’s modular walkway grilles combine lightweight construction for ease of handling with a patented swage-locked design which provides high structural efficiency and an impressive load-bearing capacity. Providing a free-draining grille surface with a serrated surface for non-slip qualities, they are extremely durable and eco-friendly with 100 per cent recyclability and low-energy assembly requiring no welding or hot works. neaco access walkways can suit most standing seam roofs with a unique fixing system which allows the roof access walkway to be installed without penetrating the roof surface. When required the modular grilles can also be installed with handrails to one side or both sides for extra safety.
