The T5 site is around the size of Hyde Park and the main terminal building alone is 396m long by 176m wide by 39m high. There is also a satellite building which is on the same size footprint as Terminal 4.
Even before the main terminal building commenced construction Unistrut prefabricated Stainless Steel Framing Modules. These Stainless Steel Modules consisted of Unistrut Cable Tray within our Framing Systems and were installed into the 2.6km Airside Road Tunnels.
In the main Terminal 5 Buildings Unistrut worked in conjunction with the site Electrical Distributor to supply Metal framing and Cable Management Products to the main Mechanical and Electrical Contractors.
From the summer of 2005 Unistrut became the main supplier of Cable Tray to the massive Terminal 5 project. Wining this supply contract emphasised Unistruts large manufacturing capabilities within the UK. The extensive technical support our
representatives offered was also an important factor.
During this time large quantities of Cable Ladder was supplied including some installed on the roof of the main building. Another product used was Kwikstrut
Framing: - the new installation time saving system.
Unistrut Ltd has also supplied the two main ceiling grid contractors with all their Metal Framing requirements, using substantial quantities of different channel sections and accessories.
The successfully completion of Unistruts involvement in the ‘building phase’ is nearing an end and we are now making preparations to move into the ‘fit out’ stage, which includes a 22,000m2 retail space.
