Heliports: Lifesaving and Noise Protection
Complete concentration in the operating room despite air rescue take-offs and landings? Not a contradiction thanks to Sylomer®.
Landing pads for rescue helicopters are not only a feature of large cities, but often provide vital access to hospitals and clinics for the air rescue services. Helicopters generate strong vibrations during take-off and landing. Operating rooms or patient rooms are often located under the helipads, which have to meet increased sound control requirements. Especially here, silence is more than a basic need and optimal vibration isolation is essential.
In order to avoid the negative effects on the building structure caused by the downwash effect, the helicopter landing pad must be decoupled from the supporting structure.
Getzner's Sylomer® and Sylodyn® materials can be used to elastically mount heliports, thereby reducing vibrations and noise within the building. Particularly when building a new landing pad, the high acoustic requirements should be fulfilled at all times. Sylomer® and Sylodyn® offer an optimal solution for vibration isolation.
- Effective reduction of noise and vibrations for a quiet environment
- Durable, maintenance-free, easy and quick to install
- Support from planning through to implementation from technical engineers to reduce mechanical vibrations induced by take-off and landing procedures.
Heliport Hospital Interlaken
Three Steps to Success
The challenge: operating rooms as highly sensitive areas directly below the heliport
The Getzner solution: elastic bearing of the entire surface of the helicopter landing pad on a total of 6 TFB elements
The result: undisturbed operation of the hospital thanks to elastic decoupling and effective vibration protection
„Measurements impressively prove the effectiveness of the heliport's elastic bearing on the TFB elements specially developed for this application.“
