ALUMINUM SCAFFOLDING TAIL STAND #EMB120
This article is going to show the Aluminum Scaffolding Tail Stand #EMB120. The Aluminum Scaffolding Tail Stand # EMB120 accesses an area of the aircraft called the empennage. The Aluminum Scaffolding Tail Stand #EMB120 helps the crew access all parts of the empennage to do what is call an “A” check. There are four levels of aircraft checks and they are A, B, C and D checks. The TAIL STAND FOR THE #EMB120 covers the vertical and horizontal stabilizers and the APU (auxiliary power unit). This check is like you taking your car in for its 10,000 mile check.
REQUIREMENTS FOR ACCESS STAND:
The Aluminum Scaffolding Tail Stand #EMB120 needed to be light weight, portable and durable. The customer wanted to access the whole empennage without having to move the access stand or a platform lift. A platform lift like a scissors or boom lift would need to be move to all the different locations and if they are not set up with a wand that stick out 3 or so inches around the platform that shuts the platform lifts down if they get to close; then is when things could get expensive. They access platform was required to be moved by the mechanics and not a tug.
This was a perfect application for portable aluminum scaffolding. We used as much standard equipment as possible and then made the custom parts and here it is.
ACCESS STANDS NEED WORK TO:
This stand has been in service for over 20 years. I should know, I sold it and assembled it when I worked for UpRight Scaffold in Selma, Ca. After all that time the casters wore out and the customer had other access requirements so UpRight Scaffold North America was called in to meet their requirement needs.
The Aluminum Scaffolding Tail Stand #EMB120 Is tough, durable and light weight For easy and careful positioning around the aircraft. Please follow up on next blog and from all of us here at UpRight Scaffold North America, “if you ever need to get up get UpRight with UpRight Scaffold North America.”
