The Wide Body Ice Chock is designed for bigger aircraft, e.g. Boing 747 or Airbuss A380, and aviation equipment. The product is made of very durable, lightweight polyurethane. The material is resistant to extreme weather conditions, oils, propellants, as well as a high tear and abrasion resistance. Thanks to the material properties, the block will never rot, crack or splint. Tests have shown that Wide Wide Ice Chock takes more wheel force than conventional rubber blocks.
This product is extra equipped with a steel grille to generate a constant grip even in the case of snow and ice. The grille in combination with the slope of the block together with the wheel pressure generates a constant grip. Wide Body Ice Chock has an innovative aluminium handle, which generates a lever and thus an increased user-friendliness. A reflex is placed on the outermost part of the handle in order to further visualize the block if it would be placed behind a wheel. Thanks to the shape of the block in combination with the handle, it is easy to place at the right place. The material is 100% recyclable.
The pulling force have been tested in purpose to promote and improve the working climate for ramp operators. According to ramp operators, GSE may in some cases be used to release chocks in order to that a human applied force is not enough. The results of the test show that Rosens innovative work is bearing fruit and we are very satisfied with the results. Due to Rosen´s unique tilting of the chock in combination with the innovative handles, only a force of 0,5kN is needed. In comparison with some competitors’ chocks where a hug pulling force of 3,1 kN have been needed to remove the chock. Which states that an extensive force needs to be applied vertically or by pulling. Through Rosen’s low pulling force, a better working climate is promoted for the ramp operators.
