All-terrain engineered helicopter pads with a 5:1 safety factor based on a fully loaded Bell 212 – 11,200lbs. Built with integral strength and tiebacks our pads can endure the stress of repeated vertical and lateral loading.
In terms of flight safety, our helipads platforms are typically the only flat areas found in the surrounding terrain. Armed with the knowledge that they have an engineered 5:1 Safety factor they make a great option for a pilot to land during an inflight emergency autorotation.
Due to terrain angle, when a helipad is built it can create a fall hazard greater that 6 feet. Unlike drilling pads and equipment pads handrails can not be placed around the pad surface as this would interfere with the aircraft landing surface. Tangiers has developed a helipad fall protection net system capable of catching a falling worker while satisfying the landing surface clearance requirements.
