TEX ATC are world-renowned air traffic control room designers, specialising in manufacturing and project managing the installation of custom steel structures and glazing. In addition, we supply standard models including the MV8 Series CAA/FAA-compliant modular air traffic control room range, undertake air traffic control room (ATCR), visual control room (VCR) and flying control room refurbishment and glass replacement.
The majority of VCRs are specialised and bespoke, and the TEX ATC team of highly experienced technical consultants, designers and engineers develop all projects in-house. Through extensive experience, knowledge of material applications and continual research and development, we provide value engineered VCRs and optimised operational environments.
