Airport Case Studies


Flat Plates for Baggage Carousels
Discover How Our Composite Flat Plate Saved Over $600,000 in Replacement Costs

When you’re in an airport, one of your biggest concerns is making sure your luggage arrived safely from your initial destination to your final destination, but how often do you think about the actual machine responsible for bringing your bags to you? An airline client of Globe Composite had a 268-foot long, 20 year-old flat baggage carousel nearing the end of its life expectancy.

The baggage carousel not only made lots of noise and showed poor physical appearance, but it required constant maintenance totaling up to $60,000 in maintenance costs per year. When the original equipment manufacturer provided only costly solutions, Globe Composite designed, produced, and manufactured a single piece, molded composite flat-plate made from our patented Brandonite® 1500-75D.

Pre-Conditioned Air Sealing Devices
Our High-Strength PCA Gasket Solution for the Airport Industry

At airports, ground service crews use air adapter chutes to circulate the pre-conditioned air for an aircraft. These air adapter chutes are connected to the aircraft via pre-conditioned air (PCA) gaskets.

Traditional PCA gaskets are made using plastic, foam, urethane, metal, or sometimes Teflon, and are prone to chip, break, or tear. To avoid these issues, Globe Composite created all-composite PCA sealing devices based on technology developed for the military.

In this case study you will find the following:
