TBDUK provide a range of vehicle mounted scissor lift platforms specifically designed and equipped for the aviation industry and airport use.
Our standard range includes platform with capacities of between 225 and 450 kg and height ranges up to 8.76m, (working height 10.76m). These are mounted on a variety of suitable chassis ranging from 3.5 ton Ford and Mercedes light van chassis up to the 7.5t Mitsubishi Canter suitable for units with the higher capacity an height range.
Typical lightweight 225kg capacity platforms have platform dimensions 1.2m wide x 2.26m long with deck extension to 3.17m long. Larger 450 kg platforms will have an extended length of 3.5m. Smaller vehicles are highly maneuverable and ideal for general ramp maintenance activity. Larger higher platforms on heavier chassis provide increased capability which will allow comfortable access for example to the tail-cone of A380 and above the tail-cone of the A340.
The push out extending cantilever deck provides additional deck space and access to windscreen areas etc. All platforms are fitted with fully compliant handrails systems and include anchorage points for work restraint lanyards.
Options include sectional telescopic half height rails for enhanced access in confined areas where the aircraft provides part of the barrier. Sliding handrails are manufacture in stainless steel for enhanced corrosion protection.
