Safe and effective access [CANSEC2016D1]

25 May 2016

An Oxbow, Saskatchewan-based custom metal fabricator and supplier to the construction, mining, government and petrochemical industries, Saskarc Industries Inc (Booth 1925) is now poised to provide solutions for the maintenance of Canada’s defence force infrastructure.

Saskarc is the offcial Canadian supplier of SafeSmart Access products, which are specially designed for enabling safe and effective access to aircraft, vehicles and depot infrastructures, such as around hangars, ship maintenance docks and armoured vehicle mechanical workshops.

In the Canadian military market, there is an emphasis on aviation, with solutions such as maintenance platforms previously developed for other defence forces around the globe, such as those made for the C-130 Hercules and the P3 Orion.

With minimal modifications, these designs are compatible with existing Canadian Air Force aircraft related to these models, such as the CP-140 Aurora, CC-150 Polaris, and the CC-130 Hercules and the CC-130J Hercules.

SafeSmart’s maintenance platforms have proven to be extremely transportable. Despite being some of the most robust systems for strength in their space, SafeSmart’s maintenance platforms – for assets ranging from small, land-based personnel carriers to large freight-carrying aircraft – are lightweight, and in a lot of cases, foldable. Even when the platforms are assembled on site by military staff, the occupational health and safety standards are still complied with.
