Aero Sekur Inc. will present a range of heli-safety and protection products at Heli-Expo 2012. The new addition to the Aero Sekur Group of companies will display complete system expertise for life-raft and flotation products.
Specializing in integrated technology, Aero Sekur combines flotation bags and life-rafts with gas cylinders/inflation systems and housing for incorporation into aircraft or helicopter frames. A key feature of the companyâ€™s display will be an innovative flotation/airbag concept: designed to increase survival rates of helicopters, and their crews, Aero Sekurâ€™s crash protection system reduces G-forces during impact and controls roll/pitch.
With a forty year history developing life-rafts and flotation systems, Aero Sekurâ€™s engineering initiatives for aerospace include a retrofittable Non-Pyrotechnic Inflation System: avoiding many of the problems associated with conventional pyrotechnic systems, the NPIS can be actuated over 100 times without performance degradation.
Crashworthy/self-sealing fuel tanks for civil and military airborne heli-applications also feature in Aero Sekurâ€™s product portfolio. Manufactured from rubber, the tanks offer a number of advantages over metal products: fatigue / weld failure are avoided, complex shapes can be produced and maximum use is made of available space.
Using advanced, lightweight materials across its range, flexibility, simplified maintenance and ease of integration are at the heart of Aero Sekurâ€™s products that will be detailed at Heli-Expo 2012.
Aero Sekur specialises in safety systems and advanced flexible structures for the global aerospace and defense markets. The core competency of the business is the design and development of advanced engineered structures using flexible materials.
