Growth in EMAS

EMAS bed

Our goal is to provide you with peace of mind, knowing that your EMAS is in good hands.

Protect the investment – now, and in the future..

It is crucial to maintain the performance and durability of your EMAS throughout its entire lifespan. Runway Safe’s Life Cycle Management services are designed to save airports money in the long run, by minimizing unexpected repairs.


Inspection and Routine Maintenance

Routine Inspections and preventive maintenance help you identify and fix small repairs early before they become more costly. Professional inspections will identify future needs, enabling planning and avoiding unforeseeable costs. Our staff has extensive expertise and experience with EMAS and can identify problem areas early to maintain functionality and minimize unexpected costs over time.

Field Strength Test (FST)*

Monitoring the strength of the core material is an essential part of ensuring the EMAS is functional over time. Our patented Field Strength Test is designed to measure performance at a given time in the life of the EMAS. Performing FSTs at recommended intervals will optimize the lifetime of the EMAS to maintain functionality and plan for future investments.


IM&R Training

Training your staff increases their knowledge and ability to perform proper inspections, maintenance, and repairs on the EMAS bed. After the training, you will be able to identify when you need to perform repairs and carry out standard repairs with your staff. Having trained staff will keep costs down and enable compliance with regulatory bodies.

Seam Seal rehabilitation

Seam Seal Rehabilitation*

The seam seal is your arresting system’s first line of defense when it comes to preventing excessive moisture from entering the bed. The harsh environment an EMAS bed experiences takes a toll on the seam seal and side coating over time. A seam seal rehabilitation helps keep excessive moisture out of the bed throughout the lifespan of your investment.

Maintenance and Material

The most practical approach to bed repairs is to address issues as soon as they arise. Therefore, maintaining an inventory of commonly used EMAS materials helps you carry out early repairs and keeps costs down. Tested and approved materials supplied by RWS will maintain the bed’s functionality at the lowest possible cost.

Verification of Fleet

The EMAS is designed for a specific fleet mix. When new aircraft are introduced into the airport, the performance of your existing EMAS for the new aircraft should be evaluated. Our fleet mix performance verification service will help verify that the EMAS bed still provides sufficient performance for newly introduced aircraft.
