ThyssenKrupp Airport Systems Dual Commuter Two-tunnel steel MODEL ThyssenKrupp Airport Systems (TKAS) offers complete, flexible global gate solutions. By providing project-tailored passenger boarding bridges (PBBs), the most diverse and demanding client requirements can be fulfilled. TKAS production lines are equipped with the latest in resources and machinery which have been especially and exclusively developed for the manufacture of PBBs. The overall concept is based on employing top quality materials and procedures to guarantee the highest standard offinishing. The corrosion protection system applied has been specially developed to improve reliability and extend service life far beyond the average. SYSTEM COMPONENTS The TKAS Dual Commuter PBB includes the following main components: 4. Cabin CHARACTERISTICS The Dual Commuter PBB (DL) represents an important technological innovation in thefield of aircraft handling. The DL PBB operates under the same flexible conditions as the traditional Apron Drive PBB. Although its construction is similar to that of the Apron Drive PBB, it is defined by its smaller, skewed cabin, which allows serving propeller and regional aircraft. The hydraulic elevation system provides extremely smooth adjustment operation while also reducing operating costs to a minimum. Automatic systems, such as Point & Go and pre-positioning, help to automate PBB handling, hence reducing the possibility of human error. The PBB is available in the two-tunnel version only. Options Steel: The structure of the tunnel walls is made of hot-dip galvanized steel. Elements are welded via an automated spot system to guarantee high precision components, which assure longer lifetime, less repair and maintenance and reduced life-cycle costs. Crystal: The tunnel walls are fully glazed. The characteristics of the glass depend on customer’s requirements, with a variety of options as to color, lighting and thermal and acoustic qualities.
