At D.E.I. Welding we provide in-shop and on-site fabrication and repair
services using mild and alloy steels, stainless steels, and aluminum.
Here are some examples of our work.
These are pictures
of an aircraft stair and handrail system designed to make entry easier
for the 87 year-old jet owner. These steps are fabricated from aluminum,
are very rigid and extremely light weight, about 15 pounds, including
the stainless steel handrail. They were designed to fit in the nose
baggage bay of a Cessna Citation. The handrail folds for storage by
removing 2 pins, and is quickly and easily deployed when the stair is
put in place. The stairs and handrail mounts are all internally braced
and self supporting.
