Aircraft tire storage racks
Martins Industries manufactures aircraft tire storage racks for tires going to small service trucks to the biggest aircraft tire.
We just launch the MATR, the Aircraft Tire Storage Rack was initially a custom model for large aircraft companies all around the world. The result of this custom made racks is the MATR. It has been designed to store all size of aircraft tires in optimal conditions.
Every aircraft tire manufacturer recommends to store your aircraft tires vertically and to proceed to a regular rotation in order to minimize the distortion of the tire. It’s exactly with this idea in mind that the MATR has been developed. The aircraft tire rack is made with a base on which sits 2 galvanized rollers that can be adjusted in 3 different positions to fit all tire diameters. On each side are mobile posts also equipped with galvanized rollers in order to maintain the tire vertically and facilitate the rotation of the tires on the rack. The 5 positions available for the post on each side of the rack enable the rack to fit perfectly to the width of the tires stored in the MATR.
Once the tires are in the rack, the only thing you have to do to optimize the lifetime of your aircraft tires is to rotate them once a month.
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.
