What you should expect when using an Instant UpRight
Maintenance & Docking System
Safety for operators – Our docks are designed to provide the safest working environment for MRO personnel carrying our Aircraft Maintenance works of all types from painting and other aircraft maintenance and repair work. Our products meet European Standards and legislation to include EN1004 & OSHA compliant.
Safety for the aircraft / Reduce Damage to Aircraft – systems are designed to reduce the risk of damage to the skin of the aircraft in comparison to the more cumbersome substitute access equipment in the marketplace. They are lightweight, have protective materials and are manually positioned along the plane.
Weighs 50% less than steel/Moved Easily – due to the lightweight aluminium construction it is easy to handle, weighing 50% less than a steel stand and can be moved very easily by 2 or 3 technicians resulting in less assemble and dismantling time.
Improved productivity/Labour Burn Rate – our stands provide the opportunity to more than double the applied labour hours per day. Personnel can access the aircraft at various levels very quickly and safety, get close to the plane and carry out multiple tasks in parallel. Custom solutions can save up to 25% labour time during major overhaul.
More than 1/2 the amount of parts – our systems use more than 50% less parts than a steel system reducing material handling.
Reduced TAT (turn around time) – 25% or more operation efficiency gains vs. power access equipment. No risk of unscheduled shut down/ delays due to machines breaking down.
STRENGTH, SPEED, VERSATILITY & MOBILITY
Custom Solutions – we not only offer a wide range of high-quality standard off the shelf access equipment we can also adapt and modify stands to meet your exact access needs. Aircraft Maintenance Stands can be tailored to accommodate multiple aircraft of a similar size.
Mobility & Speed – Lightweight high strength construction, manually deployable, adjustable height steps, mobile or fixed aircraft docking systems. Fast to assembly, easy to move and easy to store. Designed to position closely and accurately to simple or complex contours of the aircraft allowing maintenance work to be carried out with ease, safely, ergonomically and efficiently.
Solutions for all checks – access equipment for painting and line maintenance tailored to meet the requirements for light duty A-B checks all the way through to heavy maintenance C and D checks.
Highly Flexible Design – our maintenance stands can be stand alone or can be integrated as part of a complete modular system. They can be quickly deployed and configured to access different areas of the aircraft reducing stand inventory giving the client higher utilization and making the most out of their investment. Can be moved easily between hangers.
Single Point to Wraparound for all budgets – Our most common docking configurations include; fuselage, wing, tail, nose, engine, PAX and cargo door access – single point access or complete wrap around system
Improved working conditions – better access (to the exact location you need to be at) Improved lighting – 55-80 foot-candles is typical. Reduced foot travel (point of use stations for tools, air, lights).
Instant UpRight stands are highly durable – aluminium is corrosion proof/does not rust and require minimal maintenance saving both time and money.
GREAT VALUE FOR YOUR MONEY
