Single and multi-branch ducting and hoses offer a flexible, lightweight alternative to conventional ducting. Multi-branch ducts can be fitted around equipment providing airflow throughout the aircraft structure. The added option of an integral seal eliminates the need for a separate gasket, reduces the number of stress points and the potential for failure.
Icon designs and manufactures safety-critical in-flight refuelling hoses for military applications to help nations fulfill their global reach strategies. Long-term development has provided a solution to problems of weight, durability and volume within the restricted confines of an aircraft. With over 30 years design and production experience, all Icon hoses comply with the requirements of DEF STAN 00-970, DEF STAN 05- 123 and MIL-H-4495D specifications, and are supplied with Icon Braidlock end couplings.
Aircraft seals produced from silicone and polychoroprene facilitate a wide range of operating temperatures and, when combined with fabrics such as glass, cloth and polyester, performance is further enhanced. Applications include canopy and hatch seals, aerodynamic wing fillet seals and inflatable seals. Sealing sections are available in a range of configurations, with metal inserts for strengthening or for mounting location.
Icon hoses represent the most comprehensive range of aircraft oxygen-supply hose systems in Europe. High, medium and low-pressure hoses are available; all are designed for nuclear, biological and chemical warfare applications and incorporate integral communications leads and special end fittings. The Company also has the capability to provide space vehicle hoses.
Drawing on many years experience manufacturing ant-vibration mounts fitted in the most hostile environments, Icon Polymer engine mounts are designed to withstand the immense forces found in aircraft applications. Our engine mounts are manufactured using high grade elastomeric materials bonded to exotic aerospace grade metals.
