Designing Airports Past the ADA

This is bit little different type of episode. Rather than the typical interview we’ve done with industry leaders and innovators, I invited Peter Slatin, founder of the Slatin Group, and Scott Gorence, an airport architect at Corgan, to discuss airport design specifically related to passengers with physical disabilities.

During our conversation we talk about how the industry is involving to help those with physical disabilities, as well what airports could be doing better. We go further than just making sure people who may be deaf or blind can navigate an airport and talk about what the aging population will mean for airport design. We also address how people that may not need any assistance today, will need to be accommodated for when it’s not as easy for them to take all the steps needed to get around a large airport.

Fairbanks International Airport Baggage Transport Conveyor Enhanced With Mod Drive™ System


Fairbanks International Airport Baggage Transport Conveyor Enhanced With Mod Drive™ System

Airports face a host of unique industry challenges, such as meeting efficiency regulations and seeking out the best maintenance practices to reduce costs and keep operations flowing. In today’s current economic climate, any potential cost savings can go a long way. 

In 2019, Alaska’s Fairbanks International Airport (FAI) sought to modernize its equipment and operations. They were dissatisfied with the performance of the gearmotors on their baggage transport conveyors and began searching for new suppliers. Regal approached FAI with a solution that could improve equipment performance and simplify maintenance, with the added benefit of energy cost savings: the Hub City® MOD Drive™ system.

This white paper discusses the hardware deployed, the test results and the annualized expectations for ROI.
