Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) Mounts Contact Us

Parker LORD's APU Mounting Systems helps ensure passenger comfort by greatly reducing the noise and vibration transferred into the cabin. Parker LORD's APU attachment systems are designed to meet the critical requirements of safety and system retention while delivering high performance vibration and noise attenuation.

Our solutions can be applied to both small (typically less than 250 pounds) and large (>250) APU systems in either bed- or suspension-mounted configurations. These technologies are also applicable to the new turbo generator systems under development for the more electric and Hybrid Electric Aircraft.
