DHSL GSE – Airport GSE Specialists
Aircraft De-icer Specialists
DHSL supply, maintain and manufacture specialist parts for de-icer trucks and machinery across the UK. Making us one of the number 1 Airport GSE Specialists. Aircraft de-icing not only removes snow and ice but also protects the aircraft’s critical areas, including the wings, horizontal and vertical stabilizer. These areas must be free of contaminants for safe and efficient operation. A build up of ice or snow on these surfaces not only adds extra weight but most importantly, it also disrupts the flow of air. It can also disrupt the movement of the wings’ flaps and ailerons. De-icing is a highly methodical operation, from the wing’s leading edge to the trailing edge, beginning at the wingtip and working back toward the fuselage. The same is done to the horizontal stabilizers. The tail is de-iced front to back, starting at the top and down to the base. DHSL are leading UK aircraft de-icing experts.
