Airline Company Says Goodbye to Building In-House Scaffolding
An airline company’s main responsibility and concern is the safety of its passengers. An industry such as this requires frequent maintenance checks, as well as, repairs. This specific company has been building all scaffolding in-house and has spent countless hours making adjustments to the scaffolding when the height of the planes being worked on changed. That said, the company needed a more permanent platform to replace the scaffolding that was currently being used and that was taking employee’s time to build, setup and adjust for each aircraft.
The company was familiar with SafeRack’s ErectaStep product in the Boeing facilities and was impressed with how the mobile adjustable solution increased quality, safety, and operator productivity. ErectaStep met with the company and put together a part custom and part modular solution to fit their needs. The ErectaStep team pitched a solution of platforms that adjust in height pneumatically allowing the operators to access different sized planes. These easy to maneuver platforms provided employees a safe way to access aircrafts and adjust the height within no time at all. The airline company decided to test 4 stands at one of their locations in Kansas City. The platforms were delivered and SafeRack is currently working on the front and back cargo doors of the planes. SafeRack proposed a solution that they wanted, saved countless hours, and most importantly that worked!
