Portable Working Platforms

By JETechnology Staff

Portable Working Platforms

Portable work platforms are workhorses of the commercial and military aviation industries. They serve as reliable work stands during all manner of aircraft design, assembly and maintenance operations. As any ground support professional can tell you, adjustable work platforms are essential to meeting the sudden and changeable needs of any fleet.

Rolling work platforms that are easy to set up, dependable during use and capable of being quickly maneuvered to the next job — or placed into storage — function as game changers for grounds crews that are under strict expectations to work safely and productively.

What Is a Portable Work Platform?

Unlike stationary work platforms, portable — also known as adjustable — work platforms typically enable greater access to a wider variety of assemblies, heights and workspaces. However, don’t let their versatility fool you. Safety and performance won't ever need to be sacrificed when a portable work platform is in use.

Just like their permanent counterparts, portable work platforms are professionally engineered and fully tested to meet all applicable occupational health and safety regulations. In addition, lightweight materials, customized designs and enhanced safety features are often key ingredients in the successful development and manufacture of rolling work platforms.

Uses of a Portable Work Platform

Engineering, maintenance and ground service crews frequently need access to aircraft exteriors, engines and other machinery spaces. Portable work platforms allow them to safely complete their tasks in a manner that complies with all air safety and workplace regulations. What’s more: Due to the combined pressures of work consistency and budgetary concerns, these highly adjustable platforms support repeatable efficiency that’s the hallmark of safe aviation practices worldwide.

Some of the most common applications of portable work platforms include support for the following procedures and practices:

  • Assembly and construction
  • Maintenance
  • Fall protection
  • Service supply stands
  • Mobile platforms
  • Docking and gangway systems
  • Adjustable engineering platforms
