MICAM Horizon Security Wall-Lining System Chosen for New Heathrow Terminal 2A

MICAM Horizon’s composite-based wall panelling system has been selected for use within Heathrow Terminal 2 A, a £2.5 billion investment which is currently the UK's largest privately funded construction project.

Completion of the project, which replaces the former Terminal 2 and the Queens Building dating from the 1950s, is scheduled for the first half of 2014.

The new terminal will have a capacity to handle 20 million passengers annually and has been designed to reduce CO2 emissions by 40%.

As Heathrow is a live airport, the construction of materials off-site has been a key deliverable in order to maximise the project’s efficiency.

The composite panels are manufactured from MICAM’s high-performance phenolic prepregs and are fully assembled at MICAM’s manufacturing facilities in Cork ,Ireland, before being shipped to the new terminal ready for installation.
