The most clear and impactful challenge was the terminal overheating with internal temperatures reaching well over 40° C. This meant an uncomfortable and unpleasant experience for travellers and staff alike.
The glazed arches that allowed light into Terminal B were completely covered in Koolshade® and an immediate drop in internal temperature of over 10° C was measured.
The Angular Selective Nature of Koolshade® meant that whilst the sun’s heat is stopped, 100% pure, full colour-rendered (CRI) daylight
still floods through for the occupants.
The second phase, consisting of 554 screens, commenced in June 2023 and involved the air?side elevation that contained the shops, restaurants and waiting areas of the airport.
