Bayards helipads are built from the Innovadeck planking, which is an in-house designed profile that combines all the best properties of the material aluminium: it is lightweight, yet strong and maintenance free. In fact, it has an unrivalled strength vs. supporting span and the tongue and groove connection in the planking is stronger than similar connections in other planking.
It has enhanced heat tracing capacities and heat tracing systems can be easily installed on the planking. Also, the heat tracing system can be combined with passive firefighting systems, without the need to use additional profiles. This leads to a faster installation with a smaller assembly crew and no increase in weight of the total structure.
In addition, our Innovadeck plank has improved friction properties which are combined with a non-slippery, trolley-friendly surface. This trolley-friendly surface guarantees trauma patients do not experience any hinder caused by extensive vibrations when being transported to the Emergency Room via the helipad.
