F-16 Trolley Fall Arrest Systems

F-16 Trolley Fall Arrest Systems

Hill Air Force Base, Utah

The F-16 Trolley Fall Arrest Systems project consisted of the design and installation of fall protection systems and equipment for mechanics and technicians working on the aircraft at Hill AFB in eight different facility locations. The project was extremely fast-paced. We completed the design and engineering in 45 days from the award of the contract, and the fabrication and installation in 60 days after design approval.

E-Corp installed more than 10,000 square feet of support structure for the fall protection, along with more than 300 fall protection personnel devices, all in close proximity to the aircraft. E-Corp worked in between and around these aircraft without incident. We completed the entire project in high-security, 24-hour restricted facilities on schedule and without incident.

Because the facilities are used to maintain more than 500 aircraft a year, E-Corp had to use detailed scheduling to resolve numerous scheduling conflicts.  We worked nights and weekends, as needed, to avoid disruption to the facility occupants. Additionally, we had to remove or relocate several utilities to accommodate the fall protection structure. Through careful planning and coordination, E-Corp avoided interrupting aircraft maintenance and completed this project on time and without any incidents.
