Lufthansa Technik AG – still convinced after 25 years
Aircrafts, the most important asset of all flight companies, are according to manufacturers constructed in such a way that they can undergo 30,000 to 110,000 flights, which is equivalent to a service life of more than 20 years. Such a life span can only be achieved by a certain level of quality in conjunction with a regular servicing of the aircrafts, as it is carried out by Lufthansa Technik AG. One of the company´s 50 business locations worldwide is situated in Hamburg and offers the so-called MRO services (maintenance, repair and overhaul) for aircrafts. The fact that Lufthansa Technik AG has found a business partner in roda Licht- und Lufttechnik GmbH, who´s quality standards are equally high as the ones they know from aircraft technology, is proven by the overhaul hangar no 461.
On top of the 45 m high and 13,000 m² large building, the continuous skylight and ventilation system with SHE function, roda had once delivered, were all still fully functional – even after 25 years of use. Only the infills made from polycarbonate multiwall panels had been damaged by several hailstorms over the years to such an extent that refurbishment became necessary. After having established the current stage of the devices, the conclusion was drawn that the operational reliability was still given and that just the polycarbonate multiwall panels needed to be substituted. The special design of roda devices makes such a replacement possible.

“If after 25 years of use systems are still so good that only the infills need replacing, we can honestly attest roda an excellent quality of their products.”
