For many years, HR Smith (Technical Developments) have been manufacturing a range of Static Dischargers for all aircraft platforms from GA aircraft through commercial airliners to fast jet applications.
The company manufactures a version of its range of dischargers by conventional techniques using aluminium castings with composite rods but has pioneered the introduction of its range of all plastic static dischargers. This type of discharger is manufactured from advanced thermo-set plastics and offers a number of advantages over the conventional design. These include light weight, improved noise resistance, lightning strike resistance and low cost of ownership.
