Passenger Pickup, Melbourne Airport
Opened in 1970, Tullamarine Airport in Melbourne is Australia’s second busiest airport.
The Melbourne Airport Corporation recently upgraded and reconfigured the road near the terminals to accommodate a designated pick up area for incoming passengers. To facilitate safe and efficient passenger movement, the brief required all pavements to be flat, have adequate drainage and for grates to be slip resistant.
Designers subsequently specified ACO’s sloped KlassikDrain. The slope in the channel system provides the necessary fall to efficiently drain the rainwater thereby keeping the flat walking surfaces free from flooding. The stainless Heelsafe® grates are slip rated to R10, AS 4586
