Project Overview

The Portland Airport, a major transport hub for the region, was undergoing significant remodeling of its terminals. This massive project necessitated moving the central logistics hub for all the airport's restaurants. The temporary relocation placed this hub about half a mile away, requiring it to operate there for an estimated five years. A core challenge for the Port of Portland and the associated construction companies was ensuring steadfast security for the airport's food services.

Below is a detailed look at the collaboration between WireCrafters and Engineered Products working together to deliver a high-quality solution that met the needs for the Portland Airport.

Customer Description

This new logistics hub not only housed food products for the restaurants but also featured a large cooler and a significant freezer unit. The challenge was two-fold:

    1. Security: Protecting valuable food assets and ensuring unauthorized personnel could not access the stored items.
    2. Safety: With an expansive area to cover, there was also the need for fire-proofing, given the proximity of various food items and associated risks.

Key aspects of the solution:

    • Enhanced Security: The partitions provided an effective barrier, securing all food products. The addition of fire-proof mesh netting from the partitions to the ceiling ensured further safety while keeping out unauthorized personnel.

The WireCrafters Difference

Since being established in 1967 as a wire job shop, WireCrafters has grown to become the nation’s leading producer of wire partition products. Contrary to traditional systems, our woven and welded wire partitions are based on the simple idea that panels stack one on top of the other between tubular posts to reach the finished partition height. The ability to create customizable size panels is what sets us apart from all other competitors.

Our mission is to provide our customers with creative solutions for their safety, security, and storage needs, while meeting commitments with exceptional quality by people who care.
