Helicopter Pad – Automotive & Aerospace Flooring
The team at PSC Flooring have been out in the elements resurfacing a 400 square metres epoxy resin helicopter pad. For confidentiality and securing reasons we can say where or who the new pad is for but there could be a royal connection???
Client Brief and Recommendation
When on site it was obvious that the existing helicopter pad which was plain concrete had an issue with flaking floor paint that would need to be removed before any new flooring system could be installed. After discussion with the client, it was recommended that a two coats Resdev Pumatect MT (moisture tolerant) epoxy resin system be installed.
Preparation of the Floor Surface
The entire concrete pad was prepared and cleaned using the captive shot blasting machine, normally powered via 3 phase power supply but in this case because of the remoteness of the location it was necessary to use a generator mounted on a lorry.

Once thoroughly cleaned and any mirror repairs made the surface was ready for two coats of Resdev Pumatect MT moisture tolerant epoxy resin in a special green, incorporating a 0.3 to 0.6mm anti slip aggregate as a base colour. The circle and the “H” were then marked out and laid in Resdev Pumatect V, in safety yellow and white. Finally, the entire area was over coated with Resdev’s Pumadur DD, polyurethane clear coating system in silk.
The new helicopter pad looks amazing and the client is absolutely delighted with the finish and have promised more helicopter pads to follow. You could say it was fit for a king….
“The helicopter pad is now fit for purpose. Thank you for the excellent and knowledgable team from PSC.”
