S.A.F.E. Structure Designs announced Wednesday the delivery of custom maintenance stands for the Riverside County Sheriff Department (RSO). The safety-first ergonomic stands allow technicians safe access to perform maintenance on the engines, transmission, and main rotor system of their H145 aircraft.  

The custom stands are lightweight and easy to move around the hangar, according to S.A.F.E. The company offers several options for H145 and EC145 maintenance support equipment, providing custom stands and modifications to fit the individual needs of their customers.

“We are blessed to have been given the opportunity to supply the Riverside County Sheriff Department with EC145 maintenance support equipment,” said Johnny Buscema, S.A.F.E. Structure Designs’ CEO. “It is a pleasure to work with them to determine the support equipment that fits both their needs and their budget. Riverside County Sheriff has been a longtime valued customer of SAFE and we love working with them. We have provided similar support equipment for a wide range of helicopters and airplanes in both the civilian and military sector and offer many standard and customizable solutions.”

There are three stands in the RSO’s RH145 maintenance support set. The adjustable universal main rotor and transmission stand can be used for maintenance or flight line preflight inspection. It includes tool trays and anti-fatigue mats.

The battery lift stand has an actuating shelf that is designed for easy removal and installation of batteries. When the shelf is in its stowed away position, the battery lift stand can be used for tail rotor maintenance. The engine step stool is designed to allow easy access at the perfect height for engine maintenance. 

Due to their adjustability, all three stands can be used on various other aircraft as well which provides greater versatility. A video of the stands can be seen on their Youtube page at https://youtu.be/UwDEgpMDq94 or by going to their official website www.SAFEstructureDesigns.com.
