What can we do for you?

FEC Portapad offers the strength and safety of a fixed static marine Grade 600 helideck whilst being entirely portable.

Portapad has been designed by the same engineers that have designed and built 400+ roof-top aluminium helipads.

Used on a daily basis by the US Border Control, Portapad can be easily constructed and dismantled by a four person team in four hours, with little or no site preparation required.
Supplied with adjustable legs, elevating the Portapad to 1.5 metres off the ground. A highly cost effective flexible solution with low maintenance and relocation costs.

“The East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) needed an urgent replacement for the lighting system at our region’s major regional trauma unit; Addenbrookes hospital, when the existing system failed. The FEC Heliports solar powered option was ideally suited to the site and in a number of ways represented a step up from the old system with no reliance on the hospital infrastructure and services and with reliable on-call back up from FEC Heliports. It was quick to install and test and was on-line in a matter of weeks from our initial order. The company has been responsive and flexible to our needs and we are looking forward to developing more helipad lighting solutions with them in the future.”
