The platform weighs approximately 100-pounds per foot of length.
To avoid injury to personnel or damage to surrounding equipment,
use extreme caution when lifting and handling. Never walk near or
crawl beneath the assembled raised platform. Be careful not to
damage the side rail notches when turning-the platform over. Short
pieces of plywood should be used to prevent the edges of the rail
from contacting a concrete floor or other hard surface.
Do not hammer screws or bolts through holes of roller pads or side
rails due to probable damage to internal fixed components ex., nut
bars and encapsulated nuts.
c. The steps required for the assembly of the major components of the type V airdrop platform are
Construct a flat structure of sufficient mass and strength to support the weight of the
platform at a safe, convenient work height. Ensure that the surface design allows for the
clearance of the tie down rings. Ensure the structure is long enough and wide enough to
accommodate the size of the platform being constructed. This allows each panel surface
to lay flat and helps to keep the assembled platform flat.
The type V airdrop platform must be assembled upside down.
Roller pad bolts are installed through the roller pad and side rails
into the bottom of the main and rear panels. Riveted-nut plate bars
are located inside the panels.
