Whether for small regional planes or for the upper deck of the jumbo Airbus A380 – HÜBNER is presenting products for safe and comfortable entry into a wide range of different airplane types at the inter airport Europe 2019 exhibition.

HÜBNER General Manager Helge Förster emphasised:

For us, the protection of people and planes as well as the quality and reliability of our products are the top priorities. Our systems in the airport technology sector should ensure that passengers are safely conducted where they need to go, that airport personnel are protected against accidents and that airplanes, systems and components do not suffer breakdown or damages during operation.

The inter airport Europe is an international exhibition for airport equipment, technology and services that takes place from 8–11 October 2019 in Munich, Germany. Approximately 650 exhibitors from more than 40 countries will be presenting there. As the global market leader for gangway systems and a major supplier for bus, railway and airport technology, the HÜBNER Group will be giving a detailed look at its latest developments in products and service.

The Flexible All-Rounder: The PBBI

The main components of the PBBI are a flexible floor element as well as a folding canopy; it conveniently connects the passenger boarding bridge with many different airplane types.

Keßler, explained:

With its patented kinematic system, the system provides optimal sealing as well as precise docking of the folding canopy – with very low pressure being exerted on the fuselage of the aircraft, on the one hand, the airplane is effectively safeguarded against any damage while on the other the other, passengers are provided optimal protection against all weather conditions.

Protection for the Aircraft: Sliding Floor and Service Offerings

It is clear that comprehensive service support is a critical element for the effective protection of systems and components. Even years after the initial sale, HÜBNER promises continued reliability of operation. Service offerings include maintenance and repairs, refurbishment and exchange of components.

Keßler, continues:

This year we have paid particular attention to the Universal Sliding Floor (HUSB), This version of the sliding floor has been specially developed for passenger boarding bridges that do not require any tilt adjustment in the angle of the floor but should benefit from the flexible sliding floor functionality. The floor can be extended up to the aircraft fuselage and only exerts very minimal pressure there. We support customers with practical help and technical advice throughout the entire life cycle of our products, thanks to flexible production capacities, a high degree of in-house production depth, and 3,300 employees wordwide.

Protection for People: Driving Unit Guard and Albe

HÜBNER has developed a new driving unit guard for the passenger boarding bridge traction system to improve safety on the airport apron. The new guard should protect people and aircraft against the risk of collisions while passenger boarding bridges are being deployed.

HÜBNER will also be presenting ALBE – the passenger weather protection and guidance system. ALBE safely directs passengers across the airport apron and protects them against the weather when a passenger boarding bridge is not available to conduct them directly into the terminal.  Its modular elements can be deployed as required so that large distances can be covered with optimal flexibility.

HÜBNER can be found in Hall B5 at the exhibition at Stand1360.
