Advancement in Airports Escalating the Storefront Glass Market.
Apart from the expansion of airports, authorities are also concentrating on architectural systems of airports. Storefront glass is playing an integral role in airport construction industry due to its uniqueness and several other benefits. A storefront is a system of doors and windows which considered being a composite structure. This storefront glass which is fabricated and mounted as a panel system and is denoted as unitized system in the industry. These systems are having same operational and water management mechanism as compared with traditional storefronts. They are usually installed in multi-level, floor to floor, straight single floor runs and punched openings. Moreover, rising demand of energy efficient glasses has invigorated OEMs to shift to insulated glazing from single glazing units.
Airports have improved passenger experience by the advancement of unique retails and food and beverages selection, non-aeronautics department revenue have dramatically improved. Installation of storefront system in airports is the next advanced move of airport authorities due to its various benefits to increase the non-aeronautics department revenue. For example, they are using these storefront glass systems in order to enhance the passenger experience for the future purchases of retail goods; it helps to save the time of installation when delivered to the job site; also offers flexibility to meet concessionaries design standards. As per recent trends, International Air Transport Association (IATA) discussed about airlines and airports regarding the challenges posed by emergent technologies (storefront systems) which will positive impact the industry in near future.
