Hart Door Systems

London Gatwick Airport

London Gatwick Airport

London Gatwick Airport is the UK’s second-largest airport and the busiest single-runway airport in the world. Here Hart Door Systems was chosen by contractor Beumer Group UK Limited and Crisplant to integrate a series of fire shutters into the new baggage handling system within Gatwick Airport’s £183.9 million redevelopment of the South Terminal Pier 1.

By developing a fully-certified fire shutter with an underside enclosed seal Hart provided the perfect solutions, with the additional benefit that Hart is the only company in the UK to offer either BS or UL compliance.

The Hart designed fire shutter allows for a continuous belt and conveyor system which meets very stringent rules required on fire shutters for conveyor systems and it is the first time that this type of fire shutter has been fitted in the UK.

South Terminal Pier 1, is part of Gatwick’s strategy to become London’s airport of choice. With state of the art technology, Gatwick aims to not only enhance the passenger experience but to deliver high operating efficiencies for the airport and airlines which use it.
