Product Alcotex FR (Fire Rated) Aluminum Composite Material (ACM)
Clad in Alcotex FR ACM, the form of this tower is the result of research by DND into the most effective angles and shapes for an air traffic control tower. The copper colour vertical wing wall on the airside serves to shadow the curtainwall from signals beamed down the runway. Its rolled nose blends into the segmented curve of the entrance canopy fascia, which is finished and visible on both sides. The horigon blue ACM crown of the building is supported by a pre-panelized structural stud truss system, which ensured speedy construction, precise geometry, and alignment with the medium bronze ACM main building below.
