Here are the types of solutions that BHS Composites offer with some of our projects as examples.
We offer complete, custom and integrated solutions that are:
Weight often matters. And if not, price does. Lower weight means less material, easier handling, installations & transport; thus lower costs.
- Lower weight of composite parts up to 25% using Finite Element Analysis (FEA)
Most of the time, composite parts weight can be optimized. BHS Composites has successfully helped clients in aeronautics & transport reduce their total part weight by 20–25%.
- Lower Weight by Converting Into Composites a part Made With Other Materials
Considering converting a part/component to composites may be a good option since they are lighter than most other materials. BHS Composites offered lighter solutions by converting steel parts into composites (train & utility components, etc.). We also converted aluminum parts into composites and saved about 20% of the weight.
Composites have the best strength-weight ratio. The great thing is that we can make custom products that are stronger just where they need to be, allowing strength without adding unnecessary weight. E.g. mechanical strength parts such as aerial buckets.
BHS Composites can offer solutions that meet the following requirements:
- Fire, Smoke, Toxicity resistant (FST)
- E.g. fire wall parts such as train sub-floors (resistant to 450 degrees Celsius).
- ASTM compliant
- UV resistant, Vandal-resistant
- E.g. street furniture, infrastructure.
- Corrosion resistant
- Chemicals resistant
- E.g. central wastewater treatment & filtration components.
- Slip resistant
- Water resistant
- E.g. fish tanks.
Since the ideal solution is not always 100% composites, BHS Composites offer hybrid, aluminum & steel products. We make all sorts of aluminum structures (aluminum honeycomb sandwich) as well as hybrid structural solutions (aluminum and composites). The right materials in the right proportions = very structural products with minimal weight.
E.g. we converted steel structures into aluminum honeycomb and saved 60% of the weight (Full Flight simulators, specialized vehicles, etc.).
Composites make long-lasting products (50+ years). All of our solutions are durable.
We are used to parts that are large, curvy with complex shapes and various angles.
We can offer surface finish from class A to C.
Available options include:
Matte, semi-gloss or glossy finish
