Products

Powered Roller Bed

Designed to move aircraft pallets though a cargo system, Powered Roller Beds are the transport links between handling equipment. Driven by a SEW geared motor unit, manual handling is reduced to almost zero. Non-slip walkover plates are fitted to allow personnel to safely walk over the top. Standard options are available as well as bespoke equipment.

4 Way Powered Roller Bed

Similar to a Powered Roller Bed, a 4 Way Powered Roller Bed provides all the benefits of a Powered Roller Bed with the addition of transferring cargo at 90 degrees. Driven wheels pop-up between the rollers to drive cargo to or from 4 Way Powered Roller Bed.

Dolly Dock

Designed to transfer aircraft cargo from airside dollies into a cargo handling system and vice versa. Dollies suffer from wear and tear, this often reduces the height. Dolly Docks provide hydraulic height adjustment to enable smooth transfer of dollies. Options are available for Operator Walkways, Control Station location, Operator Canopy and Vehicle Protection.

Truck Dock Lift

Closing the gap between road and air cargo transport, Truck Dock Lifts rise and lower, transporting aircraft pallets from road vehicles to cargo system height and vice versa. Hydraulic cylinders provide the lifting power and a geared motor unit rotates the rollers. Lifts can be tailored to suit any need.

Mobile Scissor Lift

Mobile Scissor Lifts offer an alternative mode of transport for air cargo. Requiring only basic operator training, the Mobile Scissor Lift is a capable workhorse. Battery powered and fully manoeuvrable, a single operator can lift, move and transfer loads up to 6,800 kg. Mobile, battery-powered equipment requires very little installation. The charger needs to be plugged in and the battery charged, that’s all. Once the daily safety checks have been completed, it’s ready to go.

Castor Deck

Castor Deck allows for the manual movement of aircraft pallets or ULDs through a cargo system. Utilising castors inverted in the deck, pallets can be moved and rotated in tight spaces with minimal effort. The top deck is non-slip and can be perforated for outdoor use. Available in standard or bespoke dimensions.

Slave Pallets

Increase the flexibility of your operation by utilising Slave Pallets. Slave Pallets allow air cargo to be transported by fork lift truck. Lift-up pallet stops can be raised to prevent cargo falling during movement. Available powder coated in your RAL colour and also galvanised.

Protection Barriers, Partition Fencing and Pedestals

Health and Safety comes first with Air Tech Innovations. Air Tech Innovations provide the best quality pedestrian barriers, partition fencing and pedestals for your warehouse or working cargo shed. Barriers, fencing and pedestals are specially designed for use in warehouses and cargo sheds. Made of galvanised steel, the products are the most durable around. Air Tech Innovations manufacture and install a variety of standard and bespoke protection products.

ULD and Pallet Storage

ULD’s and Aircraft Pallets are owned by the airlines, keeping them in good order and easily accessible is essential to reduce costs incurred by damage and to save time. Air Tech Innovations storage solutions are designed to handle the demanding workload of the air cargo industry. An effective and sturdy storage system ensures operations run smoothly and quickly.

Planned Preventative Maintenance

Planned Preventative Maintenance is an investment to ensure the longevity of equipment and to maximise availability. The availability of equipment is in direct proportion to the quantity and quality of the maintenance provided. Air Tech Innovations will create an asset list for your site and create a tailored maintenance plan to suit your operation.

Reactive Maintenance

Responding 24/7, 365 days per year. Air Tech Innovations respond quickly to breakdowns and work to minimise downtime and bring equipment back into service.

Automation Improvements

Automation of existing materials handling equipment to speed up your operation and limit manual handling. Addition of powered drives to gravity equipment. Addition of sensors to existing conveyor.

Spare Parts
