  • Aircraft Docking-Systems

    ALTEC docking-systems are corrosion free and durable all aluminium structures, and are developed in the own engineering department. ALTEC produces complete docking-systems as well as individual components as nose-dock, tail-dock or wing-dock.

    Whether used as stand-alone stands or linked together to form longer, complete access and fall protection systems, ALTEC-docks offer unmatched utilization and value.

    In order to dock multi aircraft-types, a combination of elevation system and sliding panels are used. With a high-tech laser-equipment ALTEC measures every aircraft exactly according to its contour so that maximum of precession is guaranteed.

    All docks have a rubber or foamed-plastic protection on platform edges and handrails. Therefore, our docks are arguably the highest quality, best designed fall protection stands available today.

  • Helicopter Docking Systems

    About more than 20 years ALTEC is the most important suppliers of the German federal armed forces. Now, we are able to offer a large variety of modules for access to just about every spot of all types of helicopters, such as Tigre, NH 90, CH 53 etc.

    Upon request, docks are equipped with related services such as electrical, pneumatic and lighting devices. We can even deliver hover-cushion-based docking-systems which allows an extremely easy way to move the docks about rough surface.

    A complete dock usually consists of main rotor stair and platform, engine platform stair, rear rotor platform, maintenance stairs, cabin access stairs and tailboom steps.

  • Mobile Access Equipment

    By providing a variety of standardized variable- and fixed-height maintenance stairs/ramps, ALTEC gives the choice among several products, robust and light all aluminium structures, with narrow- or wide-working platform, hydraulic or mechanical system for easy indoor or outdoor manoeuvring and accurate positioning.

    In general, ALTEC variable-height maintenance stairs are equipped with hydraulic pumps saving time and manpower as they are easy to build up and provides a save and comfortable access to the aircraft. Mobile with castors, decomposable or fixed.

    Upon request, stairs and ramps are equipped with a mover for electrical and remote controlled positioning as well as sliding handrails, vertically and horizontally movable.

  • Ramps and Gangways

    Custom-made ramps for loading heavy objects like helicopters into an airplane. The advantage of these kind of tracks is the foldability by a hinge in the middle so that they can be transported in the airplane or helicopter. Welded holds provides a comfortable handling.
