Bayards has extended its offshore helideck expertise to land-based needs. Over the years several aluminium helipads have been realized for hospitals, high rise offices and city centre heli-transport services.
The helipads are designed and built according international standards and available with any conceivable option, e.y. ICAO Annex 14.
Bayards helipads are tested and approved by 3d party authorities, e.g. DNV, ABS, RMRS. For example, witnessed by DNV Bayards has tested and disproved the main misbelieve about aluminium helipads. Bayards demonstrated that aluminium helipads are equivalent to steel helipads in terms of structural integrity during a pool fire. For detailed information and video of the test please click on the following link ALUMINIUM AND FIRE.
Advantages of an aluminium helideck, which are so important for the offshore industry, are applicable for land based helipads as well.
Due to the limited weight of an aluminium helipad, it can be installed on almost every existing building, where a steel or a concrete helipad would be too heavy for the building to support it.
For new buildings the low weight of a helipad offers a big advantage as well, as the building itself does not need to be reinforced to carry the weight of the helipad structure.
Being practically maintenance free, helipads offer low costs of ownership.
The helipads are supplied as prefabricated assembly kits and can be assembled by Bayards own assembly crew or under Bayards supervision with local labour.
Bayards offers a turnkey solution, custom made to meet any requirements of the client, either safety wise or architectural wise.
