JSI received a competitive award from USAF at Davis-Mothan AFB to provide a turnkey solution, including the design, manufacture, installation, training, and support of F-16 Maintenance Stands.
The stands measured 14’L x 7’H x 4’W and were constructed from lightweight aluminum. These stands followed the contours of the F-16 aircraft and were capable of traveling vertically up to 7’. The stands were OSHA and AFOSH compliant and include fall-protection features, such as anti-skid flooring, stair treads, guardrails, and expanded metal with kick-plates. In addition, electrical inputs, circuit protectors, and flush mounted emergency shutoff outlets were mounted in the deck sections. Air system connection points were also integrated into the stands for use of pneumatic tools.
