Hartsfield-Jackson Airport Project: Sustainability in Action


ThermaCote® in reducing the heat load on passengers boarding bridges which was conducted at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta Airport from July 12 to August 15 2013. Passenger boarding bridges, air bridges, skyways and jet ways are not directly air conditioned. During boarding and disembarking, air is exchanged between both the aircraft and the bridge, and conditioning the air in the bridges is inefficient and uncomfortable. ThermaCote® was applied to the boarding bridge, reducing heat gain, lowering interior temperature, and providing energy savings.
