About us ...

Engineering  In-house engineering by licensed professional engineers and skilled designers.  Manufacturing In-house manufacturing at our plant in South Carolina Construction We provide installation services using our skilled installers, fitters and supervisors


Our helidecks are designed by Helidex own Engineers and Designers at our main office in East Rutherford. Shop drawings are generated for fabrication at our plant in Spartanburg. We design our helidecks to any Codes and Standards such as those of DNV, ABS and BV. We also design then to company specific requirements such as  Shell helideck standards. Our engineering services includes the following: Site selection or siting study for locating the deck within a vessel or rig structure to meet the application limitations and obstructions. Determine required helideck size based on applicable helicopter. Design pancake framing Design main support truss framing Design electrical/lighting system Design AFFF fire suppression system Produce design documents for  client’s/class review and approval


Shop drawings are generated for the  proposed helideck at our plant in  Spartanburg. Fabrication is carried out at our plants in South Carolina based on fabrication  documents and our fabrication Standards  and Rules.  Trial fitting of the framing is conducted prior to testing to ensure fitting and compliance  with the design drawings. NDT and FAT testings are then conducted as per project specs and standard industry  practices and in the presence of Class  surveyors.  The helideck is then prepared for shipping either in containers or flatbed trucks.   Erection drawings are prepared for the  assembly and installation of the helideck.


We provide construction/installation services for the helidecks we manufacture. Typically we provide a qualified and trained  installation supervisor to assist the  installation crew, supplied by the client, with  the field assembly of the helideck and to  ensure compliance with our design.  We also supply a complete Helidex  installation crew consisting of a supervisor  and qualified and trained fitters.   Typically, the helideck structure and  equipment are assembled on the ground  and then lifted into place by crane. Helidex provides the complete lifting analysis and rigging specifications. Rigging hardware is  usually supplied by the client or yard
