JFK Vertical Jet Blast Deflector

JFK Terminal 5 Roadway Protected by Slender Blast Fence

Project Details

Location: John F. Kennedy International Airport
New York, USA
Project: Terminal 4, Modification of Gates 3 & 5
Contractor: VRH Construction Corp.
Owner: Port Authority of NY & NJ
Challenges:
  • Challenging site geometry
  • Tight conformance to applicable regulations

A 30-foot (10-meter) tall blast fence was required to protect an elevated roadway providing access to Terminal 5. Due to the limited space available for the structure and the required ADG VI (Code F) wingtip clearance, a unique design was required. BDI’s design and engineering team produced a custom solution that met all of the project requirements.
