F/A-18 Aircraft Maintenance Stands OVERVIEW
The F/A-18 Aircraft Maintenance Stands are one of the most unique fall protection platform systems ever designed for the F/A-18 aircraft.
By offering unparalleled combinations of maneuverability, fall protections, and storage, the F/A-18 Aircraft Maintenance Stands allow for maintenance crews to accomplish a wide variety of tasks.
DESIGNED SPECIFICALLY FOR THE F/A-18 SUPER HORNET
Our engineers worked specifically with maintenance personnel of the US Navy in variety of locations to develop and design a customized set of fall protection stands for the F/A-18. Every aspect of the platforms including the modular nature of the stand and its ability to interact with other stands in the set allow users to gain work efficiency by bringing the electricity, compressed air, and storage space to the platform.
We’ve verified not only through Finite Element Analysis but also proof load testing that each design is properly rated.
MANEUVERABILITY AND STORAGE
Each modular platform has ample room for storage of various pneumatic and power tools and even aircraft parts.
This customized Phase Maintenance Stand designed specifically for the F/A-18 aircraft with 5052 and 6061 aluminum construction is easily maneuvered by 1-2 personnel because of its lightweight and polyurethane coated casters. The tough iron core of the casters and its unique design allows it to be fully transported by truck and easily set up in minutes by 2 personnel.
- Stands provides safe access to the intake and wing leading edge of the F/A-18 Super Hornet
- Modular fall protection stand system
- Electrical and pneumatic circuits included
- Telescoping lifting jacks provide unmatched stability and durability
- All walking surfaces have anti-skid properties
- Lockable sliders to follow the contour of the aircraft are included
- Lifting/Stabilizer jacks provide height adjustment for each platform
FALL PROTECTION AND OSHA COMPLIANCE
The guardrails are removable and interchangeable and still provide fall protection and OSHA compliant safety. All of the walking surfaces are equipped with antislip surfaces to help minimize any slips or falls. The individually operated extension sliders equipped with rubber padding allow for the user to custom fit each stand to the aircraft. Each extension slider is lockable without any tooling and can be put into position in seconds. The F/A-18 Aircraft Maintenance Stands represent one of the most sturdiest designs on the market. It’s made to withstand the beating that maintenance personnel dish out!
We stand behind our products with a 1 year warranty. Each fall protection stand also comes equipped with an Operator’s and Maintenance Manual that describes how to properly operate and care for your stand.
