NEW – HMS Repeater Lights

From 1st April 2021, all moving helidecks operating within UK Continental Shelf need to comply with the latest update of CAP437. Otherwise operations will be limited to stable deck conditions only.

Repeater lights are like traffic lights on the helideck, they give visual indication of the motion status of the helideck to the helicopter and vessel crew, as indicated by the HMS System.


Frictape HMS Repeater Lights offer the pilot completely new way to visually confirm the helideck motion status and possible unsafe wind conditions, as shown by the HMS system, bringing significant safety improvement to helicopter operations and personnel moving on the helideck.

Like all our products, HMS Repeater Lights have been developed for simplicity and long lifetime, with user friendliness in mind, to achieve lowest total costs over lifetime.

Main Product features:

  • Safe Zone and Ex-rated versions supported
  • Simplified, fault tolerant Repeater Light design to minimize risk of electrical and mechanical failures. Best in class materials for offshore use
