Aircraft tire storage racks
Martins Industries manufactures aircraft tire storage racks for tires going to small service trucks to the biggest aircraft tire.
The heavy-duty tire folding rack (MTFR-HD) is specially designed to store large aircraft tires. This aircraft tire rack can hold up 8 to 10 aircraft tires (may vary with the size of the tires) standing on their tread. Thought the standard rack can accommodate 44” (outside diameter) aircraft tires, we can easily make custom aircraft tire racks to accommodate 56” aircraft tires or more
For your service vehicles, Martins Industries manufactures the Passenger & Light Truck Folding Rack (MLTFD). This rack is versatile, stackable and foldable and allows tires to be stacked either on tread or laced. The use of the MLTFD simplifies tire handling and access to aircraft tires. This should be considered for any warehouse reorganization, expansion or modernization projects.
Both aircraft tire racks are modular, stackable and foldable. They are stackable 4 high (MTFR-HD) and 5 high (MLTFD) with a forklift and each rack can support 2400lbs in weight. The MTFR-HD is equipped with 2 ramps, one on each side. They can be opened to roll the tires in place, making work easier and reducing risks of work injuries due to heavy lifting. The steel plates will also serve as a security system when the rack is in being moved to prevent aircraft tires from falling.
