SIAEC upgrades its painting facilities at Chiangi Airport with a Megadoor vertical lifting fabric door from ASSA ABLOY Entrance Systems
Singapore International Airlines Engineering Company (SIAEC) is one of the largest providers of aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services in the Asia-Pacific region. From its facility at Singapore Changi Airport, the company does MRO work for more than 60 international carriers who value its reputation for quality, efficiency and reliability.
ASSA ABLOY Entrance Systems provided
For the door of Hangar No. 5, ASSA ABLOY Entrance Systems provided SIAEC with a tight-sealing Megadoor vertical lifting fabric door. Measuring 90 x 25 m, it consists of five individual sections.
Benefits with the solutions:
The choice of a Megadoor vertical lifting fabric door enabled a swift and effective conversion of SIAEC's existing building. Since no rails or foundations were needed, it was not necessary to excavate the existing apron to provide support for ground tracks. Having been approved by the Singapore authorities, the solution paves the way for similar installations in Singapore.
Like many hangars in Southeast Asia, Hangar No. 5 was originally built without a door due to the hot and humid climate. This was allowing dust and dirt to enter to the painting area, and it had caught the attention of Singapore's environmental authorities. SIAEC was one of many companies under pressure to limit its emission of hazardous paint fumes.
