These aircraft maintenance platforms have additional key features that offer users increased utilisation and hence better productivity. Individual sliding fingers contour the surface they work against leading to multiple uses on different sections of an aircraft. When this is coupled with a height variable platform capable of adjusting to many levels the scope rises even further for possible work at height applications.

Safety around aircraft is essential and Planet Platforms aircraft staging systems reflect this. Under-platform lighting keep work areas beneath the platforms illuminated so work can be carried out simultaneously from ground level and above. The provision of electrical and compressed air points removes the need to run cabling around the work area thus removing potential trip hazards.

It is not just utility points that we have looked at to make these aviation access platforms safer. All detachable items are tethered on lanyards to the system, which helps eliminate FOD for the staging system itself. Additionally, they are earth bonded which prevents static electricity build-up that can interfere with radio and navigational equipment and prevents dangerous static discharges in aircraft fuel tanks and hoses.
