Medium sized National Oil Companies spend annually EUR 20-30 million in helideck nets costs when all costs are taken into account


Perimeter_Quick_installBy using Frictape nets you can save over 70% on those costs. That’s why we are the largest manufacturer of helideck safety nets in the world.

Cost savings come from installation and maintenance costs which are reduced to minimum as a result of our research and engineering done over several decades in aviation textiles.

Initial purchasing cost with conventional helideck nets (made of sisal/manilla) and perimeter safety nets (made of metal or nylon) are in most cases only 1/20 of the total. Most of the costs come from installation and maintenance as the manufacturers of these nets have not spent effort on streamlining and simplifying the installation and maintenance processes. When the entire lifetime of the nets is well thought through and taken into account in product design, initial purchase price the nets can be 50% of the total lifetime costs, i.e. maintenance is proportionally much lower cost.

In most cases poorly designed nets installation takes up to several weeks. For the installation you will need a standby boat and in minimum three persons rope access team. In contrast, with Frictape the installation is taken care of in a matter of few days.

After installation, costs arise from constant adjustment of landing nets and testing costs added with unexpected repairs due to unforeseen problems that are discovered in random order. With right engineering approach, these costs are reduced to a fraction while maintaining highest level of safety and keeping deck compliant and certified 24/7.

I would definitely recommend Frictape to other helidecks, after been dealing with other kind of net mesh (e.g. wire mesh), we found that the product is way better than any other type.
