Commercial denomination only, not to be used for layout purposes as real length varies slightly. Please contact us for exact data. Two-tunnel steel MODEL meters inches 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 Low Level PBB includes the following main components: The Low Level PBB (LL) is a solution specifically designed for small airports where the terminal boarding gates are on the same level as the apron. The difference is that the rotunda is fixed directly to the apron. It can be installed without a foundation, allowing for substantial cost savings in the construction budget. The aircraft mix ranges from a Boeing 757 to a Q400, including a wide range of narrow-bodies. The PBB is available as a crystal or steel solution. The hydraulic elevation system provides extremely smooth adjustment operation while reducing operating cost to a minimum. Automatic systems, such as Point & Drive and prepositioning, help to automate PBB handling, hence reducing the possibility of human error and eliminating the possibility of collision between the PBB and any of the aircraft elements (fuselage, propeller, aerials, etc). The PBB is available in two- and three-tunnel versions. Options Steel: The tunnel walls structure is made out 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: 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.
