Establish Reliability and Ensure the Safety of Your Helicopter Landing Area
RusselSmith offers comprehensive Helideck Friction Testing on offshore installations and Vessels, using well-trained and experienced technicians, and friction measuring equipment.
Elevated helipads and offshore Helidecks that do not use a helicopter landing safety net are required to have an adequate friction surface. The only way to properly assess the resistance to helicopter slippage and skidding is by performing a formal and comprehensive friction test on the landing area.
Our friction tests are performed in accordance with UK CAA, CAP 437 standards.
