Dropsafe Helideck Perimeter Safety Net

Friday, 22 October, 2021 | Supplied by: Dropsafe


Dropsafe has launched a perimeter safety net system to protect personnel and assets in offshore industries. The system attaches to the perimeter frames of helidecks to protect personnel from falling and prevent loose objects from becoming dynamic drops hazards.

As contractors and operators in the global offshore sector look to make their site safety programs as robust as possible, airborne personnel transfers have come under increased scrutiny. Perimeter safety nets are mandatory on all helidecks, with demand for a high-quality solution in the offshore sector rising, after growing awareness of the specific operational risks presented by helicopter landings. Drops can occur from foreign object debris blown or equipment being loosened by powerful helicopter downdraft. The system developed by Dropsafe has been designed to offer a high-quality solution to the challenges posed by drops in offshore helidecks. Drawing on extensive R&D and expertise tackling offshore drops, it consists of 100% Japanese made 316 stainless steel wire and components.

Helidecks serve as a lifeline for offshore rigs and vessels, so it is important for operators to ensure that perimeter safety nets can be installed and maintained whilst keeping costly operational downtime to a minimum. In this context, traditional solutions constructed from coated metal, yarn and synthetic textiles may prove expensive in the long-term, as they are often resource-intensive to install and not suitably resistance to environmental factors. The marine-grade stainless steel Dropsafe perimeter safety net is designed for harsh offshore environments and can be fitted quickly and easily, requiring minimal maintenance.

The perimeter safety nets are a made-to-measure system for the sector, packed and labelled for each specific area, making it quick and easy to install with minimal tools. The system is also modular, to facilitate easy replacement of components. The Dropsafe Helideck Perimeter Safety Net is manufactured to high standards, to comply with regulations such as CAP 437 and OGUK.
