Wide Body Nose Dock

 Our Wide Body Nose Docks allow your mechanics and engineers the ability to focus on maintenance instead of how to get safe and optimal access to the aircraft. A commercial aircraft generates no income while in the hangar. It is our job to create the safest and most efficient maintenance stands and aircraft docking systems possible so that the mechanics and technicians can return the aircraft to service as rapidly as possible. *This pricing is for the B767 & B787 without Side Access Extension. Please see pricing grid below for more information.

 This Wide Body Nose Dock version has been tested and is operational on a number of different wide-body aircraft models including:

  • Boeing 747, 767, 777, 787 L-1011 Tristar, L-1011
  • Airbus 300, 310, 330, 340, 350, 380, XWB
  • LLYUSHIN 11-86, 11-96, MD11, DC10, and more!

767 & 787 Wide Body Nose and Side Maintenance Access Stands


767 & 787 Wide Body Nose and Side Maintenance Access Stands

The platform work area encapsulates a 24' x 14' area around the nose (with 12’ additional for the passenger access door option). Our design will safely support a minimum operating (or working) load of 1200 lbs, distributed. The platforms are a welded construction using custom formed aluminum planking sections with a unique non-slip walking surface and a high strength aluminum box beam support structure. In addition presented is an option for direct passenger door access extending a further 12 feet aft on the passenger entry door side of the aircraft. The decking is a designed-for-purpose maintenance stand decking material called Dimple Deck. The raised dimples provide superb traction under foot, even when covered in liquids or lubricants, and also provide for drainage through integrated drain holes in the deck, all while not causing minor injury from typical traction tread.

Sliders allow for contouring to the profile of aircraft due to variations of stand placement. Fabrication Authorities International incorporates adjustable sliding deck sections with non-marking protective rubber "D" bumper provided along slider edges next to the aircraft to prevent accidental damage due to incidental contact. Bumper material is also placed on the upper stand frame area facing the plane.

Articulating Stairs
Articulating stairways constructed to meet OSHA Standards for safety and fall protection allow for ease of travel amongst technicians, ultimately self-adjusting for height differentials while maintaining level steps with negligible differences in appropriate ranges for climbing angles.

Fall Prevention
Guardrails in compliance with OSHA requirements are included around all open edges of the working platform. The top of the guardrails on the top platform are 42 inches above the top deck with a proper mid-rail, and can sustain 200 lb. lateral loading forces for safety. Four-inch high toe-boards are also provided. A self-closing hinged gate closes off the work platform upon entering from the stairs. We also offer safety orange powder coating and metal mesh screening on all three sides, half height.

Passenger Door Access
The Nose Access Stand option allows for Passenger Door access and interaction. This option includes a second articulating stairway and profiling sliders to compensate for the differential in fuselage profile at various heights and between aircraft.

Platform Height Adjustability
Ganged jacks allow for raising and lowering the platform while enhancing the user experience by allowing the operator to adjust the platform height infinitely without the need for a fork lift. The top platform can be adjusted between 159" and 183" above the floor using the superior stability system which utilizes aerospace grade technology. The jack is designed to provide low cost, ridged, mechanically synchronized jacking free of unwanted movement. Our proprietary “puck” system ensures the telescoping tubes are always centered with zero deviation. All parts and components are precision laser cut and CNC machined to tight tolerances. The jacks utilize a single point drive system which can be operated at low rpm using a standard drill motor and hex fitting. Single point drive system components include differential gear drives (qty. 3 or 4 pending option selection), multiple couplings, pillow blocks, drive shaft tubing and mounting brackets.

The stand can be moved/transported in two ways. The stand is mounted on four heavy duty 12” swivel casters with polyurethane wheels. Swivel locks (90 degree increments), full face wheel brakes, and toe guard options are included. The casters allow easy positioning by personnel around the aircraft. A hinged tow bar is also provided for moving with machine.

767 & 787 Nose Access Stands Decking

Aluminum is inherently corrosive resistant, and does not typically require protective finish. Therefore, the majority of the stand will not be finished. However all of the guardrails and toe-boards are finished in a safety orange powder-coating or other color options available upon request. MP Industries, Inc utilizes a proprietary "Dimple Decking".


767 & 787 Nose Access Stands Electrical Options


Optional Utilities
