In a constant effort to offer value-added solutions and strive for improvement, we have developed a new type of aluminum structural deck especially designed for elevated heliports.
Helitecnica planking systems cover the full range of helicopters on the market according to the specifications set by CAP 437, FAA, ICAO, and regulations established by classification societies like DNV-GL, ABS, BV, GL and LRS.
Our systems are available in many different formats to fit the client’s requirements. Each project is studied carefully in order to apply the most adequate solution.
Some of its advantages over other materials
- Lightweight: up to 60% lighter than a comparable steel surface
- Structurally resistant
- Easy installation
- Marine-grade aluminum alloy
- Corrosion-resistant, therefore virtually maintenance free
Helitecnica planking can be attached to any type of support structure thanks to our clamping system. This mechanism allows us to fix the aluminum profiles to the top frames of the support structure through clamps and carriage bolts. Frame beams drilling is not required and therefore reduces installation time and effort.
DNV FIRE TEST
Aludeck® has been tested according to DNV specifications and our system has been certified as being equivalent to steel in terms of its fire integrity.
The fire test has been witnessed by DNV.
Official DNV report approval available upon request.
