January 27, 2020 | By JETechnology Staff

Across aerospace sectors, from commercial to business to military, there is a necessity for stepladders, whether for maintenance or boarding. Whether you’re providing aircraft stepladders for your mechanics and technicians or pilots and passengers, it’s essential to invest in durable ladders that offer safety and convenience to every user. At JETechnology Solutions, we deliver a series of stepladders for aircraft maintenance and boarding.

As a part of our turnkey approach to aviation stepladders, we work with your team from concept to completion. Our quality assurance staff coordinates with you to learn about your requirements, such as your budget and deadline, before our design and engineering team begins the process of creating your custom design. We maximize the safety and use of our aircraft boarding stairs and maintenance step ladders by also conducting several pre- and post-manufacturing tests, which our quality assurance team supervises.

When you partner with JETechnology Solutions, you receive an exceptional level of expertise, more than 75 years of combined experience and full product traceability.

Uses for Aircraft Ladders

Aircraft ladders provide a stable platform for technicians to work from and a safe passageway for passengers and pilots to board. With designs that can accommodate adjustable height and portability, you get the most use from your investment in any industry. Get easy access to the wings or tail of your aircraft with a stepladder made to fit its unique shape. We manufacture ladders to meet your desired functionality, workspace parameters and aircraft size, ensuring a quality match every time.

Workers need enough space to get close to the area without walking on the plane itself or suffering accidental falls. Well-made aircraft ladders uphold excellent design and stability to prevent injury. Requesting a proposal from JETechnology Solutions will ensure you receive a product applicable to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s standards. Adequate fall protection is necessary for every maintenance task.

Types of Aircraft Ladders

Each aviation ladder we create fulfills a unique purpose and is specialized for the customer’s industry and business need. We offer countless stepladder designs for various aircraft types, and within these designs, we add components useful and relevant to your requests.

The kinds of aircraft ladders we manufacture include:

Aircraft Maintenance Ladders

Our maintenance ladders give you a range of benefits in addition to safety and size, such as built-in toolboxes, tool interfacing and integrated lighting. A light source in dimly lit areas can be the deciding factor when it comes to safety. Our platforms come with deck lighting, eliminating the need for hanging lights. Built-in toolboxes allow you to access equipment safely and efficiently.

By choosing an aviation ladder design with tool interfacing, you can use both pneumatic and electrical power while working on your aircraft. Remove tripping hazards like extension cords and have all your tools in one accessible area.

Height Adjustable Ladders

Adjustable platforms can function as an add-on for a stationary component or as an individual mobile platform. Their adaptability makes them useful for various operations, including jobs that require long hours in stationary positions or tasks with frequent movement. Whether you need to reach an aircraft wing or change the oil, you can use one of our custom-made adjustable ladders for safety and peace of mind.

The adjustable ladders at JETechnology, as well as our other stands and platforms, come with safety bumpers to prevent damage to the craft as you work.

Mobile Stepladders

Mobile stepladders, also called rolling or portable, allow your crew to complete tasks efficiently without the need for readjustments. Use the wheels to roll your stand wherever you need it, or adjust the height to reach a new aircraft component. Our portable stands work for all aircraft types, providing a quality working platform in any industry.

We provide your mechanics and technicians with quick, convenient access to your aircraft with our portable stepladders, which require minimum personnel to move. We maximize the safety of your team, too, including handrails and anti-skid surfaces on all our aircraft maintenance step ladders. We also ensure the quality of our step ladders by sourcing high-quality materials from suppliers vetted by our quality insurance team, which adheres to ISO 9001 standards for quality.

Throughout the process of designing, manufacturing and delivering your step ladders, our quality assurance department is on-hand, verifying the work of our team.

Aircraft Boarding Steps

For private or business aircraft, as well as some military aircraft, it’s essential to provide aircraft boarding stairs to pilots and passengers. As many aircraft vary in design, we customize our aircraft step ladders to your plane’s model and brand, ensuring a perfect fit. Our design and engineering team will also incorporate any requirements you have, delivering a series of stairs that match your standards and vision.

Whether we’re producing aviation ladders or maintenance platforms, we utilize the Solidworks program — our team is also comprised of Certified Solidworks Associates (CSWA).

Fall Protection and OSHA Compliance

As a business focused on quality and safety, we ensure our aviation ladders comply with not only the standards of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Across our history, we’ve also become an expert and leader in fall protection, which is why our step ladders feature durable, heavy-duty handrails that protect passengers, crew members and hangar staff.

All our aircraft boarding stairs, including maintenance steps ladders, feature an anti-skid surface to provide a secure platform and prevent trips, falls and injuries.
