International Airport Services (CIAS) has two units of hi-lift catering
trucks built by us.
These two trucks have a hydraulic scissor lift that can reach a height of 5.6 m above ground. It has an aluminium van body with a 2-inch thick polyurethane wall to insulate the interior of the body. Two insulated Henderson roller shutter doors are used, one at the front and the other at the rear of the van body. A Thermo King refrigeration unit keeps the interior cold at all times. The front platform can be extended hydraulically.
Controls are found in the van body as well as the truck cabin. This unit also incorporates fail safe devices to prevent accidents to both the operators as well as the aircrafts.
