We design, manufacture and distribute our products to some of the largest airline and ground support companies in Europe.

We also supply dedicated staff to look after installation, commissioning and after sales support.


We supply a range of towable passenger stairs to suit all of the most commonly used passenger aircraft.

All design features are fully customisable, allowing customers to control the final specification of the product. All passenger stair models are designed to be robust and stable during operation, yet lightweight and easily manoeuvrable for ground handling staff. All stairs are designed and manufactured to the highest possible quality standards and are compliant with IATA regulations and relevant CE standards.


Our range of towable baggage trailers are designed, manufactured and built to last with a fully galvanised chassis and turntable front end steering.

All trailer ranges have numerous customisable design features and are built to meet the rigorous demands of busy ground handling operations. As with all equipment they are fully compliant with European CE standards and IATA regulations. Metaltech Engineering are leading Airport Luggage Carts Suppliers.


These portable trolleys are used to guide passengers towards the aircraft stairs and prevent access to the area underneath the aircraft engines.

The retractable webbing comes with locking pins and attachment clips allowing easy and safe operation without the risk of the webbing getting tangled. Available in a range of different colours with optional branding of the body and webbing.


Our aircraft wheel skate is designed to assist ground support staff in moving aircraft wheels in and out of acrgo holds safely and efficiently, minimising the risk of personal injury and ensuring compliance with cargo hold weight restrictions.

The lightweight aluminium body contains a lever which engages the wheels when opened and retracts them into the body when closed. The weatherproof timber coard at the top contains a strap allowing the wheel to be secured to the wheel skate and the larger diameter board at the bottom allows the weight to be spread out and preventing the wheel from moving during transport.


We offer a complete design to manufacture service for check in bag sizers and other airport furniture.

All baggage size units are designed to be easily disassembled for transport or modified as baggage size guidelines change. We also offer all customers a choice of colour coated finishing and branding.
