Columbia Helicopters Takes Deliver Of Safety First Fall Protection Platform
Fall Protection Platforms differ from Maintenance Stands in the fact that acts more like a safety net when a mechanic physically work on the aircraft as opposed to working on a maintenance stand.
All Metal MS, January 18, 2016 - All Metal MS, a global leader in the design and manufacturing of solution-driven custom “safety first” Maintenance Stands, Fall Protection Platforms, Hangar Equipment and Specialty Tooling announced that it delivered a customized line of Fall Protection Platforms to Columbia Helicopters Portland, Oregon facility.
All Metal developed the concept of designing an adjustable Fall Protection Platform, for both the BV107/CH-46 and BV234/CH-47, which supports the aircraft with a platform crafted for specific functionality of Fall Protection.
The mechanics and crews utilizing the platforms have touted the adjustability of the platforms to fit any configuration/angle of the aircraft as its most job friendly feature. These Fall Protection Platforms were designed for use when performing both routine maintenance and complete overhauls.
In March, All Metal began working alongside Columbia Helicopter’s team of experts to design a Fall Protection Platform that was cost effective and yet more functional than other industry fall protection devices.
Fall Protection Platforms differ from Maintenance Stands in the fact that a Fall Protection Platform acts more like a safety net when a mechanic is required to physically work on the aircraft as opposed to working on a maintenance stand.
Oscar Acevedo, Hangar Operations Manager, Columbia Helicopters, Inc. states, “ I continuously get thanked by our technicians, which is rare. With these new platforms the mechanics and leads are actually trying to justify why they need the platforms more on their project/aircraft.”
Johnny Buscema, All Metal President and CEO, comments: “Designing platforms that are easily mobile, provide versatility for various aircraft, can contour around aircraft accessories while overcoming the obstacles of hangar space was a goal we are quite proud to have accomplished. Our Fall Protection Platforms are competitively priced making them more cost effective and safer than other industry fall protection product line. We here at All Metal take pride in assuring that our Fall Protection Platforms provide the highest level of safety, efficiency, quality, and functionality for our clients. All Metal has become a pioneer in designing the Fall Protection Platforms and we are honored to have worked alongside Columbia Helicopters in this effort. Their knowledge of the aircraft and their integrity in doing business is unprecedented.”
