Standing at 86.9 m high, Dublin Airport’s new tower is not to be missed. At a cost of €27m, the 23-story tower will be one of the tallest occupied structures in Ireland.

The introduction of the new airport tower at Dublin airport will facilitate parallel runway operations by 2021. Thor Duct ® is delighted to have played a part.


The project was designed by Scott Tallon Walker, and brought together the expertise of Linesight, Arup, Bam, Jones Engineering, in association with IAA experts.

Smoke extract ductwork was provided by Thor Duct ® through local licensee, Air Force H & V Limited.

Given the height of the tower and the rapid build employed in delivering the structure, Thor Duct ® was the choice smoke extract ductwork to the standard EN 12101-7. 

The Inclusion of Thor Duct® ensures that the building's smoke extract ductwork has been tested to the latest standards at 1100°C

The installation was completed in a matter of weeks, and was certified under third party accreditation.  The inclusion of Thor Duct® ensures that the building’s smoke extract ductwork has been tested to the latest EN standards at 1100°C, with all the pressure and cross-sectional concerns met during testing.  Future proofing landmark infrastructure, that functions 24 – 7, is an important consideration when selecting smoke ducts.

Thor Duct® is delighted to be associated with this project, and we wish to compliment the design and build team on a fine landmark addition to North Dublin.
