Richmond Air Base needed rapid doors
Lidoran Infrastructure P/L
Richmond's RAAF base's parachute sheds had a pest problem. Pigeons would fly into the sheds storing parachutes for goods-drops, creating a mess. But while the area needed to be sealed off from pests, personnel still needed quick access.
Pests were also a problem in the personnel parachute shed. But an even more important issue was security. Whenever someone jumped out of a plane, their life was in the hands of the people who stored and cared for their parachutes. Here, access had to be strictly controlled.
We tackled this challenge with two lines of defence. We retained the exterior steel roller doors, so the facility could be locked down at night. And we used custom brackets to fit Movidors to the interior, for instant access during the day.
