WHY DON'T THE TRAY NUTS SLIDE DOWN WHEN NOT ATTACHED? [ back ]

Radiorax employs a unique system that includes a stainless retainer and wave washer to securely hold the nut where it is placed. The nut assembly nevertheless remains movable until the tray screws are fully tightened. This system provides for easy and convenient adjustment of the trays both during initial installation and when future changes are made.


ARE SPECIAL TOOLS REQUIRED TO INSTALL RADIORAX RAILS? [ back ]

Most aviation mechanics already have all the necessary tools, but Radiorax has developed special tools to make the installation easier and more precise.

The RK100 kit modifies trays for use with the Radiorax RP1110-P and RP 1115-P offset rails.

The RK400 installation spacers hold Radiorax rails at the required 6.3” spacing during installation.

The RK500 Tray Cam Installation Kit simplifies installation of Radiorax Tray Cams.

Radiorax also includes a special 3” hex ball driver with Radiorax Closeout Panels and
Installation Spacers to aid in the use of these Radiorax products.

Finally, due to its shallow angle and especially good fit, we recommend the number two Phillips
screwdriver with sixteen inch shank from Snap-On for installing the tray screws.


WHY ARE RADIORAX RAILS SO STRONG? [ back ]

Radiorax rails are formed from 6061-T6 aircraft aluminum and anodized against corrosion (except for 1040 rails which are Chem Filmed for painting). Their substantial shape and configuration make them all but
indestructible under even the most extreme aviation applications. (See "Torture Test" under Media)


IS THERE A RADIORAX SOLUTION FOR DUAL AND TRIPLE STACK AVIONICS? [ back ]

Yes. Radiorax makes a two sided center rail that is 0.700" wide and accommodates the side by side stacks found in many aircraft. This brings all of the features and benefits of our single stack system to dual stack avionics. Also available are a .385 offset center rail and a .250 offset center rail for dual stack installations with extremely tight dimensions. A special tool re-dimples the tray.

WHAT ELSE DOES RADIORAX MAKE? [ back ]

Radiorax also makes Dzus Adapters for simple integration of dzus equipment into a tray mount stack, Closeout Panels for covering empty stack space, and a variety of specialty tools to facilitate the installation process.


WHAT IS A RADIORAX DZUS® ADAPTER? [ back ]

Dzus avionics do not employ trays and are narrower than tray mount avionics. Dzus-mounted avionics are commonly used in helicopters, corporate, and commercial aircraft. This equipment is also found in smaller aircraft, as avionics of this type offer features required by search and rescue and other special operations. The Radiorax Dzus Adapter adjusts the width of dzus avionics to match the width of tray
mounts and allows dzus avionics to be mounted in Radiorax rails together with tray mounts.


YES, BUT CAN DZUS AND TRAY MOUNTS LINE UP TO LOOK RIGHT? [ back ]

The Radiorax Dzus Adapter has two different depth adjustments. The first compensates for different
thickness instrument panels. The second lines up the dzus and tray mounts. The result is a professional looking installation that is achievable in an efficient, straight forward manner.


DOES RADIORAX HAVE STC APPROVAL? [ back ]

Radiorax has been STC approved for installation in more than five hundred aircraft, including most Cessna, Beech and Piper models.

WHERE CAN RADIORAX BE PURCHASED? [ back ]

Radiorax can be purchased from avionics shops world wide, from Aircraft Spruce, Sun Aviation, and from EDMO Distributors.

Additional distributors may be added in the future.


IS RADIORAX A MEMBER OF AEA? [ back ]

Radiorax is proud to be a member of the Aircraft Electronics Association and is enjoying many new friendships and business relationships through this association. Radiorax extends special terms to other AEA members.
