Frankfurt Airport arrival passageway

An international market leader, Fraport AG is the company operating the Frankfurt Airport, Germany’s busiest air traffic hub. In collaboration with the architectural firm Belzner Holmes of Stuttgart, Westiform has fitted a wall in the arrival passageway of terminal 1 at the airport with modern LED illuminated signage elements.

Already when entering the new passageway, the different-sized, just 45-mm-deep illuminated lettering is the ultimate eye-catcher, greeting arriving passengers in nine different languages. The lettering consists of a relief made of aluminium and a letter front made from white, translucent polycarbonate. Energy-efficient, daylight-white LEDs ensure homogeneous illumination.

The lettering features 49 individual LED tubes, individually varying from one to three metres in length, with a total of 96 metres installed overall. The special thing about the installation is the individually controllable and wave-like colour pattern of the LEDs: Fraport AG has programmed the display to reproduce the ideal walking speed of passers-by, keeping it constant and actively supporting it.

Westiform was active in this project from planning and development to production and installation as the general contractor.
