Advanced heavy-traffic protection for Changi airport

29 Nov 2020

Singapore, the world’s fifth busiest airport asked A-SAFE to provide an extreme-strength traffic management solution to protect busy baggage conveyor areas against airside vehicles.


Singapore Changi is the country’s main airport, currently rated the World’s Best Airport by Skytrax for the fifth consecutive year. It’s also one of the world’s busiest airports by international passenger and cargo traffic.


The airport’s health and safety team requested A-SAFE’s aviation expertise to supply a unique protection and segregation solution for baggage conveyers. The extreme-strength Atlas barriers were originally designed in consultation with Heathrow Airport to exceed the required standards for airport safety, making them a trusted choice for the Changi team.


A-SAFE manufactured, supplied and installed over 150 metres of Atlas Double Traffic+ Barrier throughout the airport in key high traffic areas. The barrier end posts were reinforced with spinning collars on the end posts to further deflect impact force from vehicle collisions and ensure extreme-strength traffic protection for Changi Airport’s vital baggage conveyor belts.

Our Atlas safety solution range is designed with galvanised steel base plates and is also non-corrosive, non-repaint and non-scratch to stand up to tough external weather conditions in a range of climates.
