Helicopter window manufacturer Tech-Tool Plastics has significantly expanded its Eurocopter product line, recently earning STCs on new windows for EC120/130 helicopters. Transport Canada and EASA approval of the EC120/130 windows is pending. Also pending is FAA approval of new windows for EC145 helicopters.
All of these windows – and many other high-quality Tech-Tool products – will be on display at the Tech Tool Plastics Exhibit (1323) at Heli-Expo in Anaheim, Calif., Feb. 22-24.
The new EC120/130 windows are available as standard or crack-resistant, and in clear or optional tints. A crack-resistant windshield will be displayed at Heli-Expo. Three new EC145 windows will also be displayed at Heli-Expo, including a large opening slide window, a reverse slide camera window, and a windshield.
As a result of its exclusive, time-tested manufacturing techniques, Tech-Tool Plastics consistently produces windows that are optically true, a characteristic that is critical for all helicopter operations and missions. Tech-Tool has a wide-ranging product line that includes replacement windows for most Bell helicopters, plus those from Eurocopter, MDHI, Robinson, Schweizer and Sikorsky.
Tech-Tool entered the plastics industry more than 40 years ago and for the last 20-plus years, the company has focused exclusively on manufacturing high-quality helicopter replacement windows. The company’s approach to quality is centered on its unique tooling processes that produce high-quality, first-time-fit products for most major helicopter airframes. Tech-Tool products are sold and serviced directly by the company and through distributors worldwide.
