Project of superlatives. Work period: 2005 – 2011

Airport Vienna Schwechat - Terminal 3

The new terminal at Vienna Airport brings advantages for all passengers: good links with the public transport system, shorter check-in times and better orientation thanks to an elaborate, barrier-free accessible escape routing concept. The din-Sicherheitstechnik company has contributed in the matter of security lighting: the guidance system at ground-level with floor luminaires of the FLOOR-luminaire range and “invisible” escape sign luminaires are an excerpt from it – din-Sicherheitstechnik has installed a total of 12.000 light spots.

Other features of the project include special versions of emergency and safety lighting due to structural and practical conditions. In the area of the newly constructed airport train station for example the whole emergency lighting system was adapted to the extreme pressure and suction requirements.

A sophisticated emergency lighting concept

82 emergency lighting systems monitor the 270 m long construction in form of a crescent, which was opened in 2012. Whether on the commercial and the gastronomy spaces, the check-in counter or the visitor’s terrace – a solution has been found everywhere, so you can travel with a secure feeling.

Luminaires with adaptive flash function

Standards and guidelines point out that in buildings with increased risk an additional low-location guidance system can be required by authorities.

Some of the products we used

Lights diversity for every requirement.

Illuminate escape routes close to the ground with FSU

Near-ground systems

In the event of fire, smoke rises and collects on the ceiling. The rescue signs are no longer recognisable. In contrast, the near-ground guidance system, installed at short intervals, is still clearly visible and ensures that panic is reduced and orientation is increased.

Display escape routes only when necessary with FSU

Temporarily visible

In practice, there are applications in which escape sign luminaires are rarely required and are rather disruptive during normal operation. “Invisible escape signs” can be integrated almost inconspicuously into walls or other support materials. Only in an emergency is the escape sign actively illuminated and safely indicates the escape route.
