Prefabricated Air Traffic Control Rooms
The MV8 series are modular air traffic control rooms, designed by Tex ATC and manufactured and supplied worldwide for rapid installation. Tex ATC Project Managers may be employed to manage the installation or a kit-only option is available. MV8s are supplied with detailed installation instructions and bolted construction is used throughout with no site welding required.
Combining the latest architectural concepts and standards, the MV8 series specification meets or exceeds all relevant British Standards, outperforms many bespoke designs and offers a comfortable, functional, safe and stylish working environment.
All components have been specified to withstand extreme environmental conditions and therefore the MV8 series is not only universal for many locations but also extremely durable.
