Over 40 years of experience in airport equipment!
In 1967, responding to a customer request, Zepter developed an airport control tower cab in accordance with the guidelines of the Air Traffic Control Department. The tower cab they built was installed at the site by Zepter’s own technicians and was met with full approval among experts. Over the next few years, they went on to develop a standardized product line with nine different cab models for practically any need.
In 1975, the department that produced these airport control tower cabs became ZEPTER FLUGTECHNIK GmbH. They continued to improve and update the design of their cabs. As a result, today, we have cabs that are maintenance-free, regardless of climatic conditions, thanks to an aluminum facade which never needs to be repainted.
We provide the full package
The cabs also come with control desks, air conditioners, meteorological instrumentation, light guns, etc.
So far, over 200 stationary and mobile control tower cabs have been commissioned worldwide. All Zepter cabs and booths comply with the current regulations on noise and heat insulation. Another success story was the development of fully climate-controlled shelters for a variety of air traffic control purposes and in particular for use in countries with extreme climatic conditions. Mobile NDB (non-directional beacon) shelters and one DF (directional beacon) shelter were delivered pre-assembled on two-wheel trailers for air traffic control projects in Africa. We also produced several mobile units for use as UHF transmitter shelters. In addition, we engineered mobile meteorological stations, equipped with the latest technology. These two-axle vehicles with fully climate-controlled cabins and two workspaces, as well as diesel generator for fully autonomous operation, were supplied as part of an export order.
