Helideck Friction Testing and Certification

Helideck landing nets present a hazard to personnel in the form of slips and trips. Friction paint are preferred on helideck net so as to increase friction.

We provide onsite friction test for both steel and aluminum helidecks with our micro grip tester.

Advantages of Micro Grip Tester:

  • Continuous Friction Measuring Equipment
  • Designed for all seasons
  • Computer controlled system
  • Easy to use, robust, reliable
  • Flexible deployment
  • Automatic water delivery system
  • Tests entire deck, at resolution of 1m 2
  • Full maintenance & support service offered

Helideck Light Survey Inspection and Certification

On site helideck light survey /lux survey. Please refer “Aries light survey link” for further details.

Perimeter Net Drop Test and Certification

Installed around the landing area, perimeter Net should be flexible nature, with the inboard edge fastened just below the edge of the helicopter landing deck,

A safety net designed to meet these criteria should ‘contain’ personnel falling into it and not act as a trampoline,

The ideal design should produce a ‘hammock’ effect which should securely contain a body falling, rolling or jumping into it, without serious injury,
