Use sleeper shoring under the frame or axles of vehicles that weigh over 20,000
pounds and are equipped with soft, low pressure, balloon-type, off road tires. Use
sleeper shoring to prevent the vehicle from bouncing up and down and possibly pulling
the tie-down rings out of the aircraft floor.
Use rolling shoring to protect the aircraft parking ramp, and the cargo floor and loading
ramps of cargo airplanes from damage when transporting a vehicle across it. Most equip doesn't need it for weight, but all "gripping" devices need it, must be 2/4 in thick.
Use parking shoring to protect the aircraft floor from damage during flight. Any vehicle
requiring rolling shoring also requires parking shoring.
Use approach shoring to decrease the
approach angle of aircraft loading ramps.
