Runway Solutions

As a diverse Aviation Service provider, AlNahdi Aviation has developed comprehensive runway services dedicated to elevating safety and efficiency in airport operations. With state-of-the-art runway rubber removal, runway paint removal, and runway painting, AlNahdi Aviation employs advanced technologies and a highly skilled workforce to deliver exceptional results. AlNahdi Aviation also offers precise and reliable friction testing solutions to enhance runway safety.

Runway De-Rubbering:

AlNahdi Aviation harnesses cutting-edge runway rubber removal techniques that optimize the de-rubbering process while minimizing runway closure duration. Rubber deposits on runways significantly impact aircraft braking performance and compromise overall runway safety. Leveraging advanced equipment and methodologies, our expert technicians effectively eliminate rubber buildup, ensuring optimal friction levels for aircraft landing and takeoff. Through our efficient de-rubbering services, airports can maintain safer runways without significant disruptions to their operations.

Experience high-pressure water technology for efficient cleaning and marking removal. Our ultra-high-pressure rubber removal machines achieve outstanding results by removing rubber abrasion, markings, and dirt without the need for chemicals. The cleaned floor is almost instantly dry, allowing for immediate use, minimizing closures, and waiting times. With wide working widths and a uniform cleaning pattern, our machines ensure streak-free surfaces. Rejuvinating your runway and keeping it safely operational and sustainability.

Key benefits:

1. Improved Aircraft Braking Efficiency: Runway rubber removal can restore optimal friction levels, significantly enhancing the braking performance of aircraft during landing and takeoff.

2. Enhanced Runway Safety: According to studies conducted by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), rubber deposits can increase the stopping distance of aircraft by up to 30%. By regularly removing rubber, airports can mitigate the risks associated with reduced friction, ensuring safer operations.

3. Reduced Foreign Object Debris (FOD): Rubber particles that accumulate on runways can break loose and become foreign object debris. This debris can pose hazards to aircraft engines, landing gear, and other critical components. Through thorough rubber removal, airports can minimize the presence of FOD and reduce the associated risks.

4. Extended Runway Lifespan: The presence of rubber deposits on runways can accelerate pavement deterioration. The rubber particles can bind with asphalt, causing surface degradation and reducing the lifespan of the runway. Regular rubber removal can mitigate this effect, extending the longevity of the runway infrastructure and reducing maintenance costs over time.

Runway Paint Removal and Runway Painting

The visibility of runway markings is crucial for safe and efficient aircraft navigation. AlNahdi Aviation provides professional runway paint removal and runway painting services, employing industry-leading techniques and high-quality materials. Our experienced team adheres to stringent guidelines to ensure precise and durable runway markings, enabling pilots to easily identify taxiways, thresholds, and other critical points. Whether it involves refreshing existing markings or applying new ones, our runway painting services contribute to improved runway safety and enhanced operational efficiency.
