The marking out of airport runways makes very special demands on the contractors professionalism, his attitude to safety during the work and, in particular, the operating reliability of the equipment, as the runways often have to be closed for take-offs and landings while the work is carried out.
Borum has supplied machines for runway marking in airports for many years, including a BM 500 equipped with an airport marker for Thule Airbase in arctic North Greenland, where the climate and the short period of time available for marking during favourable periods of weather make extreme demands on the machine.
