Showcased exclusively at Combat Helicopter 2017 is a Human External Cargo Special Patrol Insertion/Extraction Back-up device designed predominantly against the unintended release of the cargo hook during SPIE operations caused through spurious electrical interference from the aircraft’s complex electrical system.
Drallim’s Helicopter Cargo Hooks &Load Weighing solutions hold legendary status in many military fleets. Our modern commercially produced military qualified carrying hooks offer FAR/CS compliant lifting capabilities to Helicopter OEMs looking at best practice performance for their light, medium & heavy lift platforms. Offering market leading extended TBOs, Our Hooks reduce AOG & keep operational costs down.
Drallim’s wide range of non-metallic airborne and shipborne lashings are used for general purpose cargo applications and more specialised heavy load securing. Manufactured from tough high endurance Polyester/Nylon webbing, standard off-the-shelf designs have rated working loads of between 3000lbs – 10000lbs with tensioning options to include ratchet stops, quick action toggles and one way & over-centre buckles. At the specialist end of its range Drallim produces two mooring, aircraft tie downs capable of securing light – heavy class rotary platforms to the deck link fittings on board sea going vessels.
Drallim’s Quick Release Couplings are regularly used to secure embarked aviation as well as for various alternative and demanding applications, where secure load restraints is critical to mission success. Options include the standard QRC, Extended claw QRC and the Anti-vibration model. Traditionally used for aircraft mooring on board ship, the quick release quality of the restraint also make it ideal for use to secure vehicles and other heavy loads. We also offer a bespoke service for any situation you could come across.
