The world's safest and most widely used helideck landing net
Helideck Landing Net
Frictape Helideck Landing Net is known as the global market leader in helideck safety nets. Its unique, innovative materials and balanced, low-profile structure ensure that helicopters and personnel can always enjoy safe and hassle-free operations on any landing deck where total safety is needed.
The safest net in the market
Frictape Landing Net is a market leader for a reason. It is known to retain its form and tension in all conditions and has a superior estimated lifetime of up to five years – this results in not only best safety in the industry but also lowest total cost over life. The net’s low-profile knotless design and unique non-stretch material – developed and manufactured in-house by Frictape – provide total safety for demanding operations, with minimal need for maintenance.
As the only nets in the world, our nets have a proven friction coefficient of over 0,65. The low knotless structure – less than 2,5 cm high – ensures safe and effortless walking on the deck. In addition to this, the material is electrostatically safe and non-flammable.
Ensuring smooth operations
Frictape Landing Net always retains its form, regardless of the weather conditions. The lightweight material allows for the effortless handling, transportation and storing of the net, all this while making helideck maintenance and cleaning easy. The net’s compact packaging is designed to fit through standard vessel doors.
Once a Frictape Landing Net is properly installed, it does not need to be tightened or loosened during normal helideck operations. On top of this, the installation of Frictape Landing Nets is remarkably fast, taking no more than a few hours. Below, installation is carried out by Frictape crew on board MSV Fennica in Helsinki, Finland:
The material used in Frictape Landing Nets is a unique blend of manmade and natural fibers, developed by Frictape. The material effectively resists UV radiation and other weather caused abrasions such as heat, moisture and seagull guano. This results in an extremely durable net that has a market leading lifetime expectancy of up to five years.
Did you know that a sliding helicopter can cause a load of over 500 kg to a netting? The international CAP437 standard requires nets to be tensioned to 225kg. Realizing that this is not always enough, our nets have been designed to exceed these standard requirements for the whole lifetime of the nets.
Our nets also hold both ABS and DNV type approval certificates, which is something no other manufacturers can achieve. Furthermore, our whole manufacturing process and all operations ase ISO 9001 certified.
As a real-life concrete proof of quality, our landing nets are actively used worldwide in over 1000 locations.
Low total cost of ownership
The long lifetime and market-leading durability of our nets lead to savings due to low maintenance costs and minimal need for replacements. This combined with fast installation and easy handling, storage and transport guarantee lowest total cost of ownership in any operations.
