AIRCRAFT MAINTENANCE FOR NEW ZEALAND AVIATION
Smart Height Access Solutions for GSE
With New Zealand's ever-increasing domestic and international air traffic, airlines like Air New Zealand and private aviators are keeping Kiwis and our visitors flying our skies safely and efficiently. Aviation business viability is reliant on high standards in safety, and not only for the passengers.
New Zealands height safety standards protect those who maintain the aviation machinery on the ground. In fact, the regulations and recommendations that WorkSafe New Zealand outline for industries such as construction and manufacturing also apply in hangars throughout New Zealand, where aviation maintenance is carried out for airlines from around the world.
Being smart about height access safety as an MRO can also mean an increase in productivity. This is where SafeSmart Access' aircraft maintenance stands and GSE accessories come in. Designed to suit any aircraft—rotary or fixed wing—our products are fabricated locally with the highest-grade aluminium for strength and easy hand-manoeuvrability. This means that your critical access points are easy to get to with minimal repeated ascent and descent around the aircraft – with edge protection and room for tools.
In civil, defence, search and rescue and any other busy aviation subsector, SafeSmart have loyal clients who rely on us to help solve height access and ground support safety challenges around the hangar and the ramp. From our chock and cone trolley that was originally developed for Qantas to a full-surround maintenance platform for a RAAF C-130 Hercules, we can design any height access solution for any fixed-wing aircraft.
We also understand the unique nature and potential fragility of helicopters or rotary aircraft. From work platforms that straddle helicopter skids so that the platforms gets close to the top-mounted engine, to tail platforms and more, we have developed smart time and injury-saving solutions for Air New Zealand, STARS in Canada, the US Army, New Zealand Defence Force, Qantas and many more. And like our fixed wing range, all our helicopter maintenance stands adhere to NZ's stringent regulations for working at height.
