Talented all-rounder in the field of airport architecture

Metallic mesh as a conveyor of design and function: As transport and passenger hubs, airports are like the business cards of cities and countries. Millions of people make their way through car parks, terminals and security gates at the world's airports on a daily basis. And with more and more people regularly using the buildings, the requirements in terms of architecture, safety, security and sustainability all increase.

However, ensuring maximum functionality is not the only key focus here. Since the start of jet-powered air travel at the end of the 1950s, airports have seen rapid and pronounced change. They are no longer merely basic functional transit locations, but have instead developed into representative entertainment areas with luxury shopping facilities and event locations. This multifunctional arena requires both universal and high-performance building materials. The exceptional bandwidth of functional and aesthetic properties it offers makes metallic mesh from GKD – Gebr. Kufferath AG (GKD) an integral part of pioneering airport architecture.
