S.A.F.E. Structure Designs has announced the delivery of custom fall protection maintenance platforms to the Army National Guard in Springfield, Missouri. The SAFETY FIRST ergonomic platforms allow technicians SAFE access to all areas of their Sikorsky UH-60 aircraft fleet. The set of platforms are equipped with the latest features including a seamless fit to the aircraft with zero gaps, enhanced safety handrails, and precise working deck heights to increase comfort and efficiency.
These versatile platforms are lightweight and easy to move around by one technician. Without impedances to critical areas on the aircraft, these platforms allow for maintenance access to all required areas when performing depot level overhauls or routine maintenance on the aircraft. The UH-60 stands provide a large work platform for added safety and are used for servicing the engines, transmission, rotor head, tail boom, tail rotor, windshield and flight controls. In fact, SAFE offers the only know UH-60 windshield stand on the market. Moreover, the windshield stand converts into a flight control specific platform that allows the technician to stand above the green house windows while facing AFT to work on the flight controls. Lastly, these platforms are painted with a special reflective powder coat for corrosion resistance.
SAFE will have info on these platforms at HAI Heli-Expo 2022 in Dallas, Texas.
“We are excited to supply our custom fall protection maintenance platforms to the Army National Guard in support of their UH-60 program,” said Johnny Buscema, S.A.F.E. CEO. We have spent many years on research, development and prototyping in order to finalize what we believe to be the most ergonomic set of UH-60 stands on the market. We have had the support of hundreds of maintenance technicians around the United States at Army, Navy, Airforce, Marines, Special Ops, and USCG providing us with critical feedback on our designs. Basically, we have spent years working out all the bugs. This support equipment is designed to provide personnel with safe and efficient access for all maintenance on the UH-60. We also offer this set of platforms for the HH-60, MH-60, Blackhawk, Seahawk, and S-70 Firehawk.”
