Considering Installing A Helipad?

Advantages of aluminium helipad solutions

Compared with alternatives such as concrete or steel

Corrosion resistant

Alloys used by Aluminium Offshore in the manufacture of their helipads are marine grade and high strength. They are highly resistant to most forms of corrosion, with the metal’s natural coating of aluminium oxide providing a highly effective barrier to environmental factors such as air, temperature, moisture and chemicals, thus making aluminium a useful construction material for outdoor applications. All fasteners used on the helideck are stainless steel 316. Perimeter safety netting is made from marine grade aluminium alloy with no change over required for the lifetime of the asset.

Enhanced Safety (Deck-Integrated Fire Fighting System or DIFFS)

Aluminium Offshore offer the patented Enhanced Safety aluminium helipad (i.e. DIFFS). This type of helideck incorporates a passive fire suppression system inside the decking which automatically extinguishes a fire without any active intervention necessary from flight crew or other personnel. This type of helipad has been selected on all Australian and New Zealand projects to date. To watch a demonstration of the full-scale DIFFS test that was carried out, visit Aluminium Offshore’s YouTube channel.

Quick to assemble and install

All fixtures are bolted joints, which eliminates the need for hot work on site.

Simple to repair and replace

Patented aluminium helipad is designed in modular form, allowing any part that is damaged to be repaired or replaced simply and with minimal disruption to utilization of the asset.

Maintenance free

No painting of the structure is required during its life span.
