The platform weighs approximately 89-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.
c. The steps required for the assembly of the major components of the dual row 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 that the structure is a minimum 18-feet long and
72 to 75-inches wide. This size allows each panel surface to lay flat and helps to keep the
assembled platform flat.
The dual row airdrop platform must be assembled upside down.
Roller pad bolts are installed through the roller pad and side rails
into the bottom of the panels. Riveted-nut plate bars are located
inside the panels.
