Airport: Terminal "Check in 3"

Atmosphere for lift-off

The new “Check in 3” terminal has been operating at Vienna Airport since the beginning of June, 2012: Formerly known as “Skylink”, the new building features unusual architecture and high-quality building materials. The new terminal is unusually open and transparent: with its uninterrupted glass frontage, “Check in 3” offers a view of the apron, the landing strips and the surrounding landscape. Travellers will find plenty of shops carrying internationally famous brands and several restaurants – offering everything from finger food to Asiatic gourmet cooking – on a generously scaled promenade.

High flexibility

The terminal extension lets the airport react flexibly to changing traffic and to varying traffic peaks, and to handle significantly more passengers: “Check in 3” has doubled the previous terminal area. With a length of 270 m and a width of 55 m, the new 20 m high terminal building comprises a gross floor space of 76,000 square metres. The functions that are most important for departing and arriving passengers are housed on two levels: baggage reclaim and the arrivals hall are on Level 0, while the check-in area is on Level 1.

Design and functionality on the ground

The elegance of the floor covering in the terminal needs to be worthy of the rest of the surroundings. At the same time, it must withstand heavy stresses – after all, tens of thousands of passengers, with their baggage, will make their way across here every day. The rubber floor coverings from nora systems are ideally matched to these challenges through their attractive design and their high functional performance. In various parts of the terminal, about 60,000 square metres of the tough norament 926 grano, in an elegant anthracite colour, have been installed. In the Sky Lounge, the norament 926 serra design covering generates a comfortable atmosphere with its relief structure and a warm brown colour.

Hard wearing and ergonomic

The products from the rubber specialists in Weinheim are also noted for their highly ergonomic qualities. Thanks to their lifelong resilience and their shock-absorbing effect, they make walking and standing easier for passengers and for airport staff – strain on the back and on the joints is noticeably lessened. The level of noise inside the buildings is also significantly lower with rubber floor coverings than it is if hard floors such as stone are installed. The material brings an exceptional reduction to the level of footfall noise, and the noise created by rolling baggage and other loads is lowered at the same time. The nora floor coverings thus facilitate comfortable acoustics inside the terminal, in spite of the large number of passengers. Another big advantage: on account of their dense, sealed surface, nora rubber floor coverings don’t need additional coatings and can be cleaned easily. They therefore don’t just make a good visual impression, but are extremely economical. On top of this, nora floor coverings are extremely resistant to abrasion. Even after decades, they hardly show any signs of wear, and neither their functionality nor their appearance has suffered. That is why they are to be found in so many international airports.

Fire safety

Fire safety is something else that speaks for these products from the world market leader in Weinheim. nora floor coverings contain neither PVC nor halogens. They are classified as fire-toxicologically safe according to the German standard DIN 53 436, which means that they have only a minimal toxicity to combustion gases. nora rubber coverings have been awarded numerous Green Design certificates such as the "Blue Angel … for low emissions" from leading test institutes for their outstanding ecological properties. They have also been awarded the Austrian UZ56 Environmental Label.
