Terminal 2, London Heathrow Airport

When German airline Lufthansa relocated its flight operations to the new Terminal 2 at London Heathrow Airport, they needed a high performance ventilation system to provide a superior travel experience for their passengers and an improved working environment for their employees. MAP took on the job and rose to the challenge.

Slatted Ceiling

To create an open, airy atmosphere and maintain the aesthetic of the partially-exposed panelled ceiling, MAP designed and specified a bespoke ventilation system including LDB Linear Diffusers and DLA Swirl Diffusers.

Installed by specialist contractor RSE Building Services Ltd, the diffusers were cleverly integrated behind the ceiling panels, into tiles and onto the bulkhead to minimise visual impact and maintain a consistent temperature.

The LDBs allowed treated air to be distributed precisely within the room to ensure both thermal and acoustic comfort. Comprising a number of slot nozzles with an optimised interior and profile contour, these were mounted into the aluminium frame and can be adjusted individually to permit a large number of flow patterns.

To complete the specification, we supplied an additional 30 DLA Diffusers. DLA Diffusers are easily adjustable, the patterns can be set to suit varying room conditions, even after installation. The highly inductive, fanned rotational flow makes it possible to handle high cooling loads and still maintain comfortable air conditions. Due to technical skill and expertise MAP was able to provide the client with the perfect solution to a complex, ventilation problem.

Christian Schindler, Lufthansa General Manager UK & Ireland, said: “The Queen's Terminal sets completely new standards in customer service and seamless travel for passengers at London Heathrow thanks to its modern airport infrastructure. The terminal’s design, with its open, airy atmosphere, will vastly improve the customer experience at Heathrow.”
