Cattle Pens
Instoneair developed a very lightweight, high strength collapsible aluminium/composite 747/777/MD11 cattle pen. The pen design enables more cattle to be carried on a long sector than other conventional types of penning system. The pens are very thin and light, allowing more floor area to be utilised than on other systems.

A full 747 set of pens is about 10,000lbs lighter than conventional wooden or aluminium types, thereby making available a significantly higher payload.

The use of the Instoneair cattle pen permits approx. 6 extra head of cattle at 1,500 lbs each to be carried on a 747 charter. On a large contract or series of charters this is a very important advantage; a full 747 charter normally carries 135 head of cattle of the type imported by Japan.
