Class, Third Party Tested…

Tests to confirm compliance with CAP 437 requirements for the deck capacity, safety net drop test and tie-downs pull test are performed for each helideck we manufactured and are performed at our facilities in South Carolina and are witnessed and certified by third party inspectors, Client’s reps and Class surveyors. Shop tested Friction Coefficient: The test revealed a coefficient of friction close to 0.7 in both directions of the deck top surface. Decking planks tested and certified by NRL with a coefficient of friction of 0.67 for unpainted decks and 0.75 for painted decks. Our Safety Net Test Panels are tested as per CAP 437 test dropping a weight of 125kg from a distance of one meter above the net. Our safety net panels have been tested for up to 300 kg (well above test loads) and the mesh, frames or outriggers did not show any signs of damage or failure. Tie-downs Pull Test: Our standard D-ring tie downs are also tested for each deck we supply under their presence of a class surveyor. Our tie- downs meet the stringent requirements of Normam 27 and are rated for about 8t each.
