TLD ABS-580 EXECUTIVE passengers stairways provide the ultimate in comfort and safety for the complete range of narrow, medium and wide body aircraft. ABS-580 series accommodate door sill heights from 86″(2,20m) up to 228″(5,80m) providing the ultimate in aircraft adaptability. TLD Executive stairways offer the widest stair width 59″ (1500mm), and most generous platform width 87″ (2800mm) in the industry. The capacity rating of handling up to 74 people greatly expiates the loading process.

The telescopic stairway design provides a constant and safe stair pitch throughout the entire height range. The additional width of the stairs and platform provides the safest and most comfortable operation possible. Stairways are built to be rustproof featuring extruded-aluminum non-slip steps, aluminum sidewalls and anodized handrails. Complete unit and stairway feature bright LED lighting.

All driving and aircraft approach operations are carried out from the driver’s station.
The stair can swivels according to the frame. Its tilting angle can be adjusted with the tilting cylinders, which enable precise positioning of the platform in respect to the aircraft doorsill.

4 vertical cylinders with ball-joint base plates ensure ground stabilization.
The spacious top platform is equipped at the front with a self-adjusting sliding and swiveling platform, which enables automatic and safe docking with the aircraft.
All surfaces that are in contact with the aircraft are protected with rubber strips or bumpers.

The stair guardrails are made of reinforced foam- aluminum sandwich panels. Those panels support anodized aluminum tube handrails and the lighting units.
The ABS-580 features a notch-bar on each side of flight structure for electromechanical security latching.

The latches will automatically retract while lowering the telescopic flight.
