JSI received an award to provide The USAF at Offutt AFB a turnkey solution, including the design, manufacture, installation, training, and support of RC-135 aircraft maintenance stands. These stands had the unique requirement of being operated in a Hazardous Location of Class I, Division I environment.
The smallest stand measured 5’L x 7’’H x 5’W. While the largest stand measured 9’L X 10’W X 8’ H. Both stands were constructed from 6061-T6 aluminum. The aircraft 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. This project was completed on-time and within budget.
