Helicopter Flooring You Can Count On

Whether you’re looking for civilian helicopter or military helicopter interiors, Duracote has worked hard to become the prime source of performance materials widely used in all types of helicopter interiors. As one of the leading helicopter interior companies worldwide, we at Duracote pride ourselves on our incredibly high standards. We are an FAA- and Boeing-approved radiant panel laboratory and manufacture FAR 25.853(a) and FAR 25.856(a) certified aircraft insulation materials and flooring.

For helicopter flooring, Duracote offers DURUG medevac flooring.

DURUG 2665 Medevac Flooring

DURUG 2665 is a durable, high-performance flooring material that is perfect for both OEM and retrofit installations in helicopters.

What makes DURUG unique? DURUG is manufactured with 1/2-inch foam backing that provides extra padding for when people need to quickly throw equipment boxes or other cargo in the aircraft.

This flooring is perfect for military helicopter interiors. The high-wear, non-textile flooring meets Boeing, Lockheed and military specifications, so you know it will hold up to the strenuous use of medical and military settings. It also meets the 12-second burn flammability requirements of FAR25.853(a)

Among its special features, DURUG also:

  • Is easily cleanable for bodily fluids
  • Withstands both heat and cold
  • Offers anti-static protection
  • Is lightweight, weighing around 50 ounces per square yard
  • Is easy to install with aircraft-approved double-sided tape
  • Resists chemicals, most oils and mildew
  • Can be manufactured in any federal standard color number or Pantone color

Since DURUG holds up longer and is easier to clean than other flooring materials, you’ll save money in the long run on cleaning and replacement costs for your helicopter cabin flooring.

DURUG is designed to work with any of the most common medevac manufacturers, including:

  • AgustaWestland / Leonardo
  • Bell Helicopter
  • Lockheed Martin / Sikorsky
  • Airbus Helicopters
  • Boeing

DURUG is available directly from Duracote or through our distribution network.
