Composite Benefits

 Composites offer several advantages; they are much more environmentally responsible, more effective and resourceful than traditional non-renewable material. Composites are non-magnetic, non-sparking, corrosion resistant, slip resistant, lightweight for reduced freight & install costs, impact resistant, fire-retardant and non-conductive for either heat or electricity. Our FRP Composite is designed to be extremely strong and durable, much stronger than steel. Composite material weighs less than 1/2 of its steel counterpart. Product will not rust like steel or easily dent and deform like aluminum, and requires nominal maintenance compared to other options. Composites are well suited to any and all environments, either inside or out, and are resistant to extreme cold and heat. Our Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP) Composite Material is constructed using USA-made, top quality pultruded material with a UV-resistant veil to lessen fading of color. Designed for easy fabrication and installation, all of our composite products meet OSHA and ANSI requirements.

We believe in our products and we’re confident that the investment of a well designed, high quality helicopter maintenance stand is easily offset by higher productivity, better quality workmanship, and superior fall protection. Our stands provide an extra margin of stability and safety so maintenance technicians may engage their work with less interruption.

We offer options on all of our helicopter stands, including tread type, castor options, pneumatic plumbing, tool trays, lights, or electrical receptacles.
