CGear Australia was established in 2003 and holds a patent in over 100 countries for its SAND FREE mats.
Continual research and development by the CGear Sand-Free team has seen the production of products for use by the military and the outdoor/recreational markets. These two divisions of CGear Sand-Free are internationally recognized innovators in these specialized fields and markets.
The military products CGear Sand-Free has developed focus on providing solutions to sand and dust abatement for helicopters when landing and taking off. The CGear Sand-Free patented Tactical Helimat is a light weight transportable Helipad that solves the problem of sand and dust abatement, known as Brown out.
Brown out traditionally has caused serious safety issues due to the lack of visibility whilst operating in sand and dusty environments. Further, brown out can cause mechanical failures due to ingestion of sand and accelerated wear of rotor blades, rotor gear, general wear on engines and filters.
The company’s SAND FREE Helimat facilitate in increased operational aircraft time, reduced maintenance costs and increased operation safety for aircraft and ground crew. It also reduces ingestion of sand and dust, is lightweight, compact and rapidly deployable, impervious to aviation fuels and oil spills and flame resistant.
CGear Sand-Free distributes the Tactical Helimat to the US Marines and other Military worldwide.
