Safety Floors at American Airline Hangars

To provide a safe work environment for its maintenance personnel, American Airlines conducted a series of flooring renovations in the hangars located at the Dallas Fort Worth Airport, one of the airline's operations hubs.

When selecting product for the completion of the project, chemical and slip resistance properties were crucial to help prevent and avoid any future incidents related to oil slips in the hangar. The safety of the AA maintenance team was a priority for the project.

Looking for products that could deliver a long term solution, Flowcrete worked directly with American Airlines to develop a non-slip system that would keep their workers safe.  The team chose Flowcoat SF41 broadcast and Flowseal PU Gloss, covering an area of 340,000 sq ft (31,586 m2).

Flowcoat SF41 properties met the criteria determined by AA: excellent stain and chemical resistance, anti-slip surface and hard wearing durable finish that is easy to maintain and built to last.  This will enable better flooring maintenance and improve the safety conditions of thehangar.

Thanks to the environmental commitment of American Airlines and Flowcrete, all materials supplied to the project were in reusable IBC containers, substantially reducing the amount of waste generated during the execution of work.

The Flowcrete system is now a flooring global standard for all American Airlines facilities.
