Airport Safety Prepares for Take-Off
by: NJM Group Marketing on
The Hamad International Airport in Qatar is a popular stopover and destination neighbouring the United Arab Emirates. Since its opening in 2014, it’s received over 120 million passengers and handled more than 1.9 million tonnes of luggage.
Visitors from all over the world arrive daily at Qatar airport, often seeking entertainment, hotels and food during their layover. This means the staff at Hamad International Airport must stay on track of the health and safety of their passengers, and without the right amenities and safety solutions in place, it can prove quite a difficult task.
If you have travelled via long-haul flight before, you will understand that passengers taking connecting flights through Qatar will often have been travelling for ten hours or more. With so many passports to scan, meals to serve and beds to make, it’s important that layovers are uninterrupted and hassle-free.
Bump rails to protect windows from luggage trolleys are a staple of every local and international airport. While they may not be noticed by most passengers, it’s the attention to detail which gives airports an edge over their environments. By providing handrails and kick rails to add to the modern aesthetics of large airports, sensitive surfaces and weary travellers are ensured a smooth transition between countries and flights to leave a pleasurable and memorable experience once they reach their destination.
Here at Australian Bollards, we understand the need for airport safety solutions. We understand the importance of handrails and bump rails, as well as information points in busy areas such as airports, shopping centres, car parks and train and bus stations.
Australian Bollards’ installation at Melbourne International Airport includes kick rails and flexible bollards to assist passengers transiting to, through and from Melbourne safely to their destinations.
Flexible bollards both guide passengers away from taking their luggage trolleys on escalators, while also not remaining too rigid and possibly harming passengers.
Bump and hand rails also provide navigational assistance to commuters by guiding them to the allocated areas and by protecting sensitive areas such as large glass windows and escalators.
