Car park with a safety net
With some 300,000 movements a year, Kingford Smith is Australia’s biggest international airport. More than 1,500 square metres of X-TEND stainless steel mesh were installed at the national terminal’s car park number 1. It provides fall protection and façade cladding over a total length of 71 metres and a height of eight storeys. Its high permeability and unhindered passage of air and water satisfy local building regulations for classification as an “open parking deck”, which in turn reduces the requirements for ventilation and sprinkler systems.
