LYSAGHT FLEXLOK™ 0.55 mm BMT COLORBOND® XRW SONATA BLUE

Sorong, also known as ‘Kota Minyak’ or ‘Oil City’, since the arrival of Dutch oil surveyor in 1908, is the gate to Papua Island and the entry point for anyone visiting the exotic tourism destination ‘Raja Ampat’. Domine Eduardo Osok (DEO) Airport, located 8 km from the city of Sorong, is the largest and busiest airport on the Bird’s Head Peninsula. Start operating in 2004, as replacement to the older and smaller Jeffman airport, a former world war II airfield on the island of Jeffman. As part of airport development program, in 2014 The Office of Transportation Service started the construction of a new terminal. Designed by Indrakila Architect, the new terminal displays an elegant convex concave curved roof. To produce roof for a large scale project is not a difficult thing, but making it curved accurately to fit the structure is one task that needs to be done properly, especially when the project is quite far on this eastern part of Indonesia.

LYSAGHT FLEXLOK™ 0.60 mm TCT (0.55 mm BMT) COLORBOND® XRW SONATA BLUE is chosen as the roof cover. It’s capability to curve in both convex and concave makes it a perfect choice. With roll on site method, the contractor, PT Panca Duta Karya Abadi has no need to worry about getting problem with defect during transportation. With the machine brought to site, each roof sheets are guaranteed to arrived at the location in good shape the second they came out of the machine.
