Frictape Helideck Landing Net is world’s most popular choice for offshore helidecks. Its unique, innovative materials delivers highest safety in the industry with major savings in lifetime costs.
SAFEST NET WITH LOWEST LIFETIME COSTS
Frictape Landing Net is a market leader for a reason. Advanced materials engineering and focus on ease of use delivers 40-80% cost savings vs traditional rope nets while ensuring highest safety in the industry.
Our landing nets retain form and tension in all conditions, resulting in virtually zero maintenance required. Net’s low-profile knotless design and unique non-stretch material – developed and manufactured in-house by Frictape – provide total safety for demanding operations.
As the only landing net 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. Also 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:
The material used in Frictape Landing Nets is a unique blend of synthetic 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.
As a real-life concrete proof of quality, our landing nets are actively used worldwide in over 1000 locations.
