Electric Heating Systems for Airports and Heliports

Usually crowded airports demand special solutions for the safety and comfort of their passengers during the winter.  Not only should they provide comfort for travelers during long journeys, above all else, they must be safe for aircrafts, irrespective of any weather conditions. An apron should never be slippery, and all lines of the airstrip should be visible. Using electric heating systems for outdoor on aprons and airstrips protects them against ice and snow, and makes daily operation safer and easier.  

Likewise, emergency heliports for hospitals have special safety and medical service requirements for patients. Such medical flights are served to save human lives. That’s why ensuring clear and dry landing places for helicopters is crucial. Electric heating solutions ensure the best possible conditions for short and safe take-off and landing, regardless of any weather conditions.
