What is HELiMESH™?
HELiMESH™ is a stainless steel safety net system specifically designed for offshore helicopter landing deck perimeter structures.
(Note: HELiMESH™ is not suitable for anti-skid helicopter landing deck net applications).
The HELiMESH™ Advantage
Manufactured from 316 Stainless Steel Wire Cable & Tube Frame, HELiMESH™ is extremely resistant to corrosion, even in the harshest offshore conditions. Unlike other safety nets made from synthetic rope / webbing or PVC coated fencing mesh, HELiMESH™ will not burn or melt and will not deteriorate with exposure to UV rays or bird guano. With up to 25 years service life HELiMESH™ will dispense with repeated costly installations of inferior safety net systems and should outlast the life span of the facility. HELiMESH™ safety net panels are light-weight, pre-fabricated in any shape or size ready to install, and can be installed without scaffolding. All materials and tools required for installation are supplied with delivery of the safety net panels.
In selecting HELiMESH™ you can be guaranteed of the highest quality products and materials. Extensive PMI (Positive Materials Identification) material testing by our third-party metallurgist is undertaken with every project and verifies manufacturer's mill and material certificates. All relevant documentation and certificates are compiled in a job specific MDR (Manufacturer's Data Report) which is supplied on completion of the project, providing full materials tracability.
The HELiMESH™ safety net system has been subjected to rigorous testing under the supervision of DNV (Det Norske Veritas) and fully complies with the requirements of helideck perimeter safety netting as prescribed in British CAA CAP437 Offshore Helicopter Landing Areas, Safety Nets and Oil & Gas UK - Helideck Perimeter Safety Nets.
HELiMESH™ can be manufactured with either 316 stainless steel or copper ferrules (joiners and terminations) depending on client preference. HELiMESH™ is normally installed by the facility's own helideck maintenance crew, however a specialist installation crew can also be provided if required or preferred.
