Bakerbellfield Airport Interior and Furniture Solutions for Global Aviation Projects
Bakerbellfield is a global supplier of airport interior and furniture solutions.
Interior and furniture solutions for the airport industry
The company offers Aviation Security In Airport Development (ASIAD) compliant check-in counters and hybrid check-in counters, security preparation (liquid aerosol gels) furniture, wayfinding monolith and beacons, wall linings, passport control counters; and airside works including retail frontages, gates counters, customer podiums, card reading shelves, vat counters with anti-bandit glazing screens, and immigration counters with swing gates.
Bespoke airport counters
The look and feel of every airport interior is different, as airport operators strive for their own unique brand and identity.
For this reason, Bakerbellfield does not offer a standard counter range, instead it works with customers to deliver bespoke products that take into account ergonomics, functionality, aesthetics, and importantly budget.
Airport security preparation furniture
Bakerbellfield specialises in designing and manufacturing security preparation furniture modules, to be located in landside security zones, for passengers to segregate liquids, aerosols and gels before entering security.
The company has supplied bespoke solutions for Heathrow Airport and Hamad International Airport. More recently, it has commissioned its own security preparation furniture designs for mainstream use.
These designs are ASIAD compliant, and take on board best practices learnt from previous work in this area.
Airport project history
Bakerbellfield has a reputation for supplying robust, quality products, on time and within budget.
In 2012, Bakerbellfield was awarded the contract for design, manufacture and installation of all check-in and associated desk / counter furniture packages for Heathrow’s new Terminal 2.
On that project, it delivered 500+ desks spread over 75 design types. Since then, it has undertaken 100+ airport projects, both nationally and internationally, and continues to serve some of the world’s leading airports.
Airport interior and furniture design solutions
Bakerbellfield’s design and engineering department consists of experienced airport product designers, mechanical design engineers for undertaking structural load calculations, along with chartered engineers for ensuring ASIAD compliance, and certifying the designs.
The company uses a Solidworks Pro modelling package with a vast library of assemblies, parts and components from previous airport interior furniture designs.
This includes a sophisticated product data management system ensuring engineering controls capture and process any project changes as they happen.
All airport interior furniture designs are compliant with ASIAD and fire ratings, and take into account structural load implications.
Bakerbellfield has a 75,000ft² manufacturing facility incorporating metalwork, joinery and plastics processing equipment. Continued strategic investment into in-house capabilities ensures control of product from design, through manufacture, to install.
The company is an approved fabricator for most of the leading solid surface suppliers. This gives customers the assurance that work meets industry standards.
In particular, solid surface fabricating meets the requirements as set out in the Design Performance Standards for Airline Desks (Heathrow Airport guidelines for designing and manufacturing airline desks).
Along with being ISO:9001 and International Rail Industry Standard (IRIS) certified, Bakerbellfield’s commitment is to a high-standard of technical and safety strategy. This involves working with customers to embed a safety-by-design policy, and provide a safe and healthy working environment for employees.
