We were asked by a client if it would be possible to make 2 of there tail docks which allow works access to the tail sections of passenger jets to be made adjustable (Raise and Lower) from there fixed position the docks were built to suit a certain type of aircraft and were not universal. If they could be adjusted all types could be catered for. We came up with solution of fitting new structural steel to the underside of the dock and then making screw jack and fitting them to the steel work. We then drove them up and Down simultaneously using an air motor and a series of gearboxes and drive shafts interlinking all Jacks. The contract entailed complete design of steel work, drive system, jacks, self adjusting access stair, control systems, safety system, limits and fab and fit the entire system.
As of July 2014 all structural steel projects have to be CE compliant and CE marked this includes everything from a steel lentil over a window to a bridge from a handrail to a roof over stadium any component taking a load. It includes overall design, weld design ,joint design, material, welds, persons caring out the welds, nuts and bolts even down to paint basically that what ever is made is able to do the job its designed to do. We can offer full design and fabrication on all structural projects. All our staff are fully trained and tested to meet these requirements and have all the necessary certs and tests to carry out this work.
