Overview

These units have been designed to be intuitive and easy to use whilst remaining safe and stable at all times. Height adjustment is hydraulic with a mechanical pawl safety interlock system ensuring the upper section cannot be left in a dangerous half step position.

Stairs and platform are both of a fully welded aluminium construction with an inward opening access gate to the front and half height telescopic handrails around the platform to aid in access and usability.

The unit is mounted on high speed running gear with Ackerman steering system for easy positioning and enhanced dynamic stability when cornering. When close to the aircraft the unique rear castor can be deployed if required to give unsurpassed manoeuvrability and easy positioning through controlling the platform by the handrails at the base of the stairs.

Hydraulic stabilising jacks self-compensate on deployment to stabilise the unit and are independently locked to ensure shifting weight on the platform cannot generate movement in either cylinder.

OAccess

Designed for multi- aircraft types these units give access from a platform height of 1.5m to 4.5m. The 1.5 to 2.5m unit is ideal for accessing most required points on narrow bodied aircraft such as A320 and B737. Whilst the larger units provide access to wide body and larger aircraft such as A380 and B777. One man maneuvrability, 2 person capacity means that it can also be used for more labour intensive tasks.
