Fiberglass Is the Deflector Material of Choice in Tasmania

Project Details

Location: Hobart Airport
Tasmania, Australia
Project: Hobart Airport 12/30 Runway Extension
Contractor: Fulton Hogan
Owner: Hobart Airport Pty Ltd
  • Challenging site geometry
  • Tight conformance to applicable regulations
  • Very short lead-time to perform the design and delivery

A public roadway at the end of the runway is protected from jet blast of departing aircraft thanks to a BDI fiberglass deflector. In addition to safely deflecting jet blast, this deflector does not interfere with signals produced by the nearby ILS localizer, providing assurance to the airport and arriving aircraft.
