Within the scope of the reconstruction of terminal 1 at Frankfurt Airport a modern medialization of the outdoor area is planned. A slim light band shall be integrated into the terminal façade. It will be changing colors like an ambilight according to the dominating color of the current content of the advertising display opposite it.

For this project the key aspects are the ideal LED technology, extremely accurate construction planning and production as well as teamwork among competitors. Thus we realized a 434 m long media band consisting of several different long segments with various curves and different radii. S[quadrat]’s engineers developed a very comprehensive concept for the required C-profiles, mounting brackets and more construction components made of steel and aluminum. The sub-structure for all segments was built into a prepared shaft with precision work. Then we installed a total of 2,300 LED tiles C50 of Schnick-Schnack-Systems GmbH with each 16 SMD LEDs behind a laminated safety glass (VSG 8) with a 1.52 mm thick film.
