WE PROVIDE airports, airlines and aircraft maintenance companies with cutting edge Solutions for Aircraft Run-up Noise & Jet Blast Protection

deep knowledge

For more than 30 years APS has been
providing solutions for airports
around the world. Our exclusive focus on serving the airport industry led to a deep understanding of the scientific aspects, such as aerodynamic and acoustic theories and makes us true experts in our field.

custom solutions

We understand that every facility is unique and demands a design based on specific acoustic and aerodynamic requirements. That’s why at APS, we custom design and construct every facility to meet the specific needs of our customer.

reliable service

We pride ourselves in providing reliable, customer-centric solutions. Whether you need a simple blast screen or a complicated GRE, we are the partner you can rely on.


Ground Run Up Enclosure and Airplane

ground run-up enclosures

The technology created by APS is leading the industry for jet blast deflection and the reduction of ground run up noise. Such noise control facilities are noise protection walls arranged around the aircraft on two, three, or four sides, even completely closed/roofed, in combination with an exhaust gas stream deflector placed immediately behind the aircraft. Depending upon noise protection requirements, wall elevations up to 20+ meters can be, and have been implemented.

Red and White Jet Blast Screen

Jet Blast screens

APS has developed an exceptional knowledge of the problems airports face when dealing with jet blast issues. Blast screens supplied by APS provide an ideal solution to maximise usable space and improve safety for taxi, breakaway and even full power blast. These screens greatly increase the efficiency of existing ramp space and allow personnel and vehicles to safely operate near taxiing aircraft whilst also providing an aesthetically pleasing look.

APS is fully capable of carrying out maintenance work on facilities supplied and installed by others. We can provide you with a single point of contact across al disciplines: for electrical systems, mechanical, hydraulic and other moving parts to guarantee the serviceability of a facility and to make maintenance delivery easy and reliable.


The Airbus facility is the largest of its kind in the world. The first run-up enclosure for the A380 was built for Airbus Industrie’s Toulouse operation. The full power tests required prior to test flights are incredibly noisy and, for this reason, a solution was required that offered high usability and excellent acoustic performance. APS built a circular facility to address the varying local wind direction, with 20m high performance acoustically treated walls: based upon a proven concept originally developed by APS for a project in Dortmund, Germany. The Airbus facility is the largest of its kind in the world.
