For its Royal Navy vessels, Permali composite flight deck safety solutions comply with the most recent UK MoD fire retardancy (FR) regulations. Permalis Randamp;D team created Permaglass XGR2/4, a new FR composite material grade that offers the next generation of naval safety fire performance, to fulfill the regulatory standard to improve naval crew fire protection.

To confirm the new materials’ suitability for the demanding deck safety applications, extensive mechanical and fire, smoke, and toxicity (FST) testing has been done in accordance with the new Defence Standard 07-247. Since the first Permali composite stanchions were installed on the decks of Royal Navy ships more than 30 years ago, UK MoD fire retardancy regulations have gotten even stricter.

It was difficult to meet the more stringent MoD FST standard’s fire performance requirements without sacrificing mechanical performance, which is usually caused by the use of fire retardant fillers. We were able to create a technical solution that offers the ideal combination of attributes required for this new generation of naval stanchions by collaborating with our customers and the MoD regulatory team. All four types of safety systems that Permali supplies for naval vessels are now to be made with Permaglass XGR2/4, According to a press statement from Steve Benn, Permali’s Technical Manager for composites.

The most recent and strictest MoD fire, smoke, and toxicity (FST) performance standard for naval vessels is Defence Standard 07-247. The lightweight, high-performance GRP materials from Permalis are used by the Royal Navy and other navies from across the world to safeguard crew members and equipment on weather decks, flight decks, and walkways. Every deck safety system created for Royal Navy ships has been MoD approved and put through a battery of tests to make sure it complies with DNV and Lloyds registry regulations.

The Visby class corvettes, RN Type 45 destroyers, RN Type 23 frigates, RFA Bay class support ships, and Queen Elizabeth class aircraft carriers—famous for being the largest and most technologically advanced warships ever constructed for the Royal Navy—are among the naval vessels currently in service with deck safety systems from Permali. In addition to naval ships, the RRS Sir David Attenborough, a specialized polar exploration vessel, is equipped with Permali deck safety equipment to safeguard crew members on the flight deck.

For a wide range of safety-critical military and civilian land, sea, and air applications, Permali designs, manufactures, and provides a large array of custom FRP composite panels, components, and systems based on a wide variety of resins, fibers, cores, and adhesives. Additionally, conventional and customized Tuftane aromatic thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) elastic films are offered by Permali.
