Terminal 4, the second largest terminal at Heathrow airport in London with 14.2 million passengers a year and dedicated to long and medium haul flights, was recently totally refurbished with, in particular, a new glass extension. It uses one of the most advanced solutions for solar protection thanks to collaboration between Mermet and Levolux.
The addition of a glass wall 180 metres long adding 25 metres to the depth of Terminal 4 created a more spacious, lighter and more modern check-in area for the greater enjoyment of the passengers.
To avoid potential problems caused by glare and heat within this new area, in addition to the high-performance glass construction, Levolux put forward an effective solution of 33 interior roller blinds, each measuring 3.4 metres wide with a maximum height of 8.3 metres.
The Screen Vision SV 10% fabric in coated glass fibre was chosen from the Mermet® collection for its unique technical characteristics:
Thanks to Mermet and Levolux, Heathrow Airport Terminal 4 has been revitalized with its new airy and bright space (£200 million of renovation work)… for a new take-off experience in comfort and safety!
