Airstairs which can be carried with the aircraft
No fixed aircraft attachment is required
These days many airlines find themselves operating from alternative airports where there is limited access equipment - or maybe diverted to an alternative airport and cannot disembark the passengers whilst waiting for steps.
Designed using the same angles and tread numbers as the factory fitted stairs, passengers can safely board and disembark the aircraft via these lightweight aluminium airstairs. At no point do these aircraft stairs touch any part of the fuselage or the door sill, as the connection method makes the stairs sit inside the door onto the cabin floor.
As boarding takes place and the aircraft lowers, the stairs automatically find their own level, similar to factory fitted stairs.
Once out of the aircraft hold, they can be set up by the crew or groundstaff in less than two minutes. The video below is a demonstration of the simplicity of the set up of our portable airstairs.
Another important key feature is the stair tread surface. Ra'alloy is known globally for producing everlasting, all-weather, anti-slip floor and these treads include a lightweight version.
Strength is also another key issue and our airstairs have undergone many stuctural tests.
One important key feature is the cost, compared to factory fitted aircraft steps, our air-stairs are a small fraction of the price and airlines will save money and time as the aircraft does not need to be grounded for installation.
