The TPS2636 telescopic adjustable height passenger stair is suitable for front and rear sills of all B737 variants and Airbus A318/319/320/321 aircraft. The passenger stairs have a fixed lower stairway mounted on a welded steel chassis-frame. The step treads and top platform walking area are surfaced with grip faced aluminium tread plate to assist passengers in all weathers.
Construction is robust but also lightweight in design, saving time and effort when manually manoeuvring the steps, to or away from the aircraft. Sliding side-rails with hand operated spring bolts at both sides of the top platform facilitate the opening of the aircraft doors with the steps interfaced to the door.
A rubber buffeted pivoting section is fitted at the leading edge of the top platform to interface with fuselage contours. The standard unit has tubular/sheet steel side-panels with handrails fitted to both sides of the stairway. Full solid sheet steel panels with D-Rubber buffers to the leading edge are fitted to each of the sliding rails at each side of the platform.
The TPS2636 provides the flexibility to service narrow body fleet operations with a common passenger stair.
Chassis-frame, steering turntable, tow-bar and top platform are painted black, all other sections are painted in a single corporate colour top-coat.
High visibility markings are applied to front/rear chassis corners and sides of tow-bar.
