Helicopter Loading Bag
This hard-wearing and high-specification bag has been designed to transport firefighting equipment via helicopter and/or sea going tug, directly on to the ship affected.
The base of the helicopter loading bag is constructed with both and inner and outer shell. The outer base (bottom tray) is constructed with large radii corners to avoid damage to helicopter. Base Dimensions: 36.3" x 25.2" (915 x 635 mm). 8 gauge manufactured from Carbon/Kevlar.
The inner part of the base is constructed of 6mm ply measuring 34.5" x 29.2" (870 x 610 mm). The bases are secured through the bottom of the bag and through the webbing straps by steel bolts with Nylock nuts.
All seams are double stitched and a 7.9" (200 mm) rubbing band, manufactured from black PVC Nylon is stitched to the bottom of the bag. It is made from high-visibility orange Nylon with clear label pouches for easy insertion and removal of labels/instructions.
Six reinforced easy grab handles are secured around lower half of bag to assist in manual transfer of equipment. One 1.8" x 118.11" (48 mm x 3 m) webbing strap for securing or dragging purposes is secured at one end with leather fastenings and can be stored into a zipped pocket when not in use.
Two 1.8" (48 mm) heavy-duty webbing straps which extend 21.65" (550 mm) above top of bag (excluding carabiner) for use in helicopter transfer of equipment. Each strap is of double thickness for extra strength and continues underneath bag where they are bolted through from base for extra security.
Between each strap, reinforcement has been inserted to minimize spin of bag while undergoing transport. Each strap carries a 45 kN Steel Carabiner.
