Stair Trucks

Passenger boarding stair trucks are very important for an aircraft to allow a safe and smooth entry for passengers into and out of the aircraft. Boarding stairs are otherwise known as boarding ramps, aircraft steps or air stairs. They are mobile and can be rolled into place when the aircraft is on the ground. The stairs are temporarily connected to the aircraft doors to help the passengers board the aircraft and also disembark from it. Air stairs form a mobile conduit between the aircraft doors and the ground.

Aircraft boarding stairs are manufactured using high quality materials and are weatherproof and skid-resistant. They provided safe boarding to the aircraft.

Small aircrafts have their own inbuilt roll-up stairs which are dropped down to the ground level as the plane grinds to a halt. But in bigger aircrafts, the doors are between 5 to 20 feet high from the ground and the steps are too large to be folded and carried on board. Boarding stairs are a convenient, flexible and mobile solution to allow safe and easy boarding and disembarking.

Small stair units are moved into position by towing or pushing them using a boarding stairs tow truck. Large boarding units have their own engines, so they are self-powered and can be moved into position without the help of another tow truck. Air stairs typically come in different heights to suit different aircraft models. They also have optional features such as supplementary lighting, canopy, air conditioning and carpeted steps.
