Use Composite Replacement Parts

Do you have hard to find parts or the OEM no longer supports or supplies the part? We can take an existing part and make replacement parts for you that perform even better than the original part. Globe has designed and manufactured a wide variety of replacement components specifically designed for clients in the airport industry

RoHS Compliant Radiation Shielding Curtains

Despite the declining popularity of lead-based materials, RoHS compliant products are still not universal in the workplace. Incidents of exposure can occur during the production, use, maintenance, and disposal of materials and products containing lead. When it comes to radiation shielding curtains used in X-Ray Scanners and Explosive Detection Systems (EDS), the traditional solution contains lead, frays easily, is difficult to maintain, and contributes to inefficient jams.

To solve this issue, Globe Composite has patented a low-friction, durable, RoHS Compliant Radiation Shielding Curtain designed to significantly increase the throughput of baggage and parcels. > Learn More

Case Study: 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.

Case Study: 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.
