Here at Alliance Doors, we are proud to deliver industry-leading shutters and doors to all kinds of commercial and industrial properties. We are particularly pleased to announce that our industry-leading fire shutters have been chosen for the Zakynthos International Airport. With more than 1.5 million passengers using this airport every year, it is extremely important that the space is versatile, secure and practical.
In the past, our professional team has delivered shutters and roller doors to all kinds of properties. We are extremely proud that our hard-wearing and practical designs have been chosen for such large-scale use across one of the ten busiest airports in Greece. More than 12,000 aircraft land and take off from the airport every year. As such, it is extremely important that the airport fully complies with all health and safety features and legislation.
The Privatisation of Airports in Greece
In 2017, the Greek Government agreed to the privatisation of 14 regional airports to the German-owned operator Fraport. As part of their mandate for taking over the operations of these airports, these facilities needed to be upgraded and modernised. These projects need to be completed by 2021 to meet the conditions of the Greek government’s mandate.
Fraport’s Greek subsidiary is responsible for ensuring that these airports are fully modernised by 2021. The organisation wasted no time and has already started fitting these properties with hard-wearing and reliable modern features, including 2-hour and 4-hour fire shutters to provide complete protection.
The major development work, which is to be continuously implemented over the next four years, will also include further building work. In addition to modernising the existing space, these regional airports will also be enhanced with multiple new passenger terminals. The privatisation of these airports, and the mandate to modernise them, will greatly increase the practicality of these airports. Multiple new passenger terminals will allow these airports to increase their total capacity and enhance the overall quality of service they can provide.
Alliance’s Range of Hard-Wearing Fire Shutters
As part of the initial project, Alliance Doors was approached by a Greece-based trade partner. They requested that we supply 37 electrically-operated 2-hour and 4-hours fire-rated roller shutters. These are all to be installed at the Zakynthos International Airport. Thanks to their intelligent design, and hard-wearing nature, these 37 roller shutters are to be used in a variety of different openings, including:
- Baggage Handling Areas.
- Internal Retail Outlets.
- Canteen Serveries.
- Et Cetera.

Both 2-hour and 4-hour fire-rated roller shutters will deliver a reliable service against any outbreak of fire. These solutions are ideal when it comes to containing an outbreak of fire.
