Unique Site Requirements and FAA-validated Computer Model Provide a Customized Solution An EMASMAX® bed is typically the full width of the runway and the arrestor bed is set-back from the end of the runway. 

The front of an EMASMAX bed includes a lead-in ramp to transition the aircraft into the material:

  • Beyond the runway width, the sides of an EMASMAX bed are stepped to provide emergency vehicle access and passenger egress. • On short runway safety areas an EMASMAX bed typically extends the length of the space available.
  • On long runway safety areas the arrestor bed set-back is increased and the system is sized for 70-knot performance.
