Manufactured assembly kits for helidecks

Bayards provides its helidecks as prefabricated assembly kits according to the client’s needs. These can be shipped in standard containers to any yard or site in the world where Bayards professionals supervise the assembly by the client’s personnel. Upon arrival, the company will assemble the aluminium structure with its local assembly crew. This ensures that once the helideck is lifted onto the platform or vessel, it is just a matter of plug and play.

Bayards’ helideck assembly kits are completely bolted so no special tools, heavy cranes or on-site drilling, welding or cutting are required.

Helideck fire-suppressing systems

In addition to equipping its helidecks with conventional firefighting systems and/or deck integrated firefighting systems (DIFFS), Bayards developed the Safedeck system: a helideck with enhanced, passive fire-suppressing performances.

It is specifically designed to optimally drain any liquids directly through the perforated deck surface. It autonomously and immediately suppresses the fire by combining the effects of relocating fuel, cutting off oxygen supply and cooling.

As a result, the Safedeck guarantees maximum safety for a landing helicopter.

Aluminium accommodation structures

Aluminium living quarter buildings are up to 60% lighter than steel equivalents and corrosion-resistant.

They require hardly any maintenance or painting and have a design life of more than 35 years, resulting in extremely low cost of ownership.

Stair towers

Bayards offers a bespoke construction kit according to the client’s needs, which can be transported anywhere. Moreover, the company supplies all forms of cladding, including A60-cladding.

Hand railing and safety systems

Bayards is a leader in the development of advanced and highly cost-effective safety and handrail systems. The company has created a unique modular hand railing system that is easy to install and maintenance-free.

Wind and heat shields for Offshore platforms

Bayards delivers wind and heat shields according to the client’s requirements to provide extra protection for Offshore platforms and their personnel.

Offshore platform safety gates

Bayard’s robust and flexible safety gates ensure continuous reliability on dynamic offshore platforms.

Flex-barriers and swing load protection barriers

Bayards offers lightweight and maintenance-free safety systems such as flex barriers and swing load protection barriers.

Antenna towers

Easy to assemble and quickly operational, Bayards’ aluminium antenna towers can be equipped with custom-specific claddings and coatings, such as the internationally required red and white striped safety colours.

Telescopic gangways

Bayards offers lightweight aluminium gangways to connect offshore platforms, vessels, ships and quays.

The reduced weight facilitates the three movement planes, namely slewing, luffing and telescoping.
