EA Revolving Door Installed at TAG Farnborough Airport’s Main Terminal


Farnborough Airport or TAG London Farnborough Airport is an operational business/executive general aviation airport in Farnborough, Rushmoor, Hampshire, England. The airfield is the home of the Farnborough Airshow which is held in even numbered years. The first powered flight in Britain was at Farnborough on 5 October 1908, when Samuel Cody took off in his British Army Aeroplane No 1.

After TAG took control of the airport from the MOD, it invested in a series of new infrastructure projects, including a new radar unit and a resurfaced runway. The most striking new constructions were a new control tower, a large hangar unit, and finally a brand new terminal building that opened in 2006, all designed by Reid Architecture and Buro Happold. The designs won a series of awards, and were nominated for Building of the Year by Building magazine in 2007. The terminal was formally opened by HRH Prince Andrew.

In 2014 the airport approached EA Group as they required a solution for sliding doors which were pretty draughty and presented a heat or air conditioned air loss issue throughout the year.

Many options were tabled and together with digital surveys, many renders and digital fly through videos, EA Group offered the solution of a multi-function revolving door that could offer all the benefits of a revolving door, but at peak times could be parked and could become once again a sliding door if required.

In 2015 an order was placed for this solution and was installed thereafter during a refit of the lounge:
