Increased Safety and Durability

Safety, usability and costs of helideck nets are determined by the combination of material, design and installation method. Designed to last, our nets are extremely durable and resistant to diverse weather conditions.

Unique material used in our nets provides an optimal combination of strength, durability and lightness. Frictape material is a blend of man-made and natural fibers. In addition to high durability and UV resistance, material is electrostatically safe and non-flammable.

From maintenance point of view, Frictape is more advantageous than stainless steel net. Additionally, I did select Frictape because I believed that it would last longer than stainless steel safety net and HCA inspector highly recommended Frictape.
