Aircraft Maintenance Platforms

Fall Safety Systems For Aircraft Maintenance


FLS aircraft maintenance platforms provide optimal safety conditions for maintaining rotor or fixed wing aircraft across all military and commercial applications. Maintenance platform designs range from small portable step up decksto full phase maintenance platforms.

Quality Systems For Aircraft Fall Arrest

Each maintenance platform is inspected to American Welding Society standards and issued a complete finite element analysis to confirm load ratings for light, medium and heavy duty.

Our platforms are constructed from light weight, high-strength aluminum and self-draining, anti-slip, anti-bounce safety tread. FLS aircraft maintenance platform safety tread is patented and used on both the decks and stair treads. It is the true OSHA compliant tread and is omni-directional and self-correcting.

FLS engineers know the minute details of every maintenance platform design and maintain consistency in design and function throughout the product line. All hardware used is consistent across platform lines and model types for simple part replacement when necessary. Consistency in design also allows aircraft technicians to easily retrain on new equipment.
