Cases & references
We visited Transocean Corcovado in January 2019 to carry out helideck friction testing. The deck was recently surfaced with new high friction coating and as it often happens with profiled aluminium helidecks, it did not meet the friction requirements when we tested it. In cooperation with the crew, our technician carrying out the friction testing and Frictape team at the office, we found ways to further treat the surface to meet the friction requirements. Afterwards we received this nice message:
The new Frictape Perimeter Safety Nets where recently installed in a very timely manner to Seajacks Zaratan – led by Frictape technician Jonathan Brundle.
In January 2014, four Frictape Service Technicians installed both Frictape Perimeter Nets and Landing Nets on board sister vessels MSV Fennica and Nordica. Installation of the Frictape netting was completed in total of five working days in icy cold conditions in Helsinki and Inkoo, Finland.
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.
Frictape landing nets and perimeter nets are ideal for the Erskine and we have no plans to change.Nigel ParfootChevron Erskine Materials
