Providing lightweight solutions for separating crew and cargo.
We provide main deck barrier nets and semi-rigid barriers to major aircraft manufacturers; these 9g barrier nets are used to transport freighter aircraft. From initial concept, engineering design to the certification of the finished product our 9g barrier nets offers the unique safety design allowing the barrier net to withstand an extreme deceleration while distributing the load evenly. This ensures cargo will not penetrate beyond the net.
Key Features & Benefits
We are the primary manufacturer and supplier of the world’s largest 9G Barrier Net and Smoke Curtain for the Airbus Military A400M Transport Aircraft.
Our innovative Airbus military freighter solution provides for safer transportation of troops and cargo. The A400M system restrains the payload and prevents personnel injury and equipment damage by preventing cargo penetrating into the cockpit crew area in uncontrollable flight, crash and emergency landing conditions. A thermal insulation curtain reduces aircraft turbulence and cold air penetration when the rear cargo door is open. Lashing equipment restrains palletised loads, such as vehicles, and prevents movement during flight.
AmSafe Bridport were selected in 2011 to design, manufacture and support the provision of a 9g Barrier Net along with a two Smoke Barriers for the Boeing KC-46A (Tanker) for initial use by the USAF. The selection was based on our acknowledged expertise in these products and built on our experience with other transport and freighter airframes.
