Workshop Facility and suspended ceiling pits

This workshop is equipped with Hartex Engineering’s Suspended ceiling truck service pit. Equipped with 2 pit bays 26m long, the large vacant area under the steel deck allows operators to accommodate oil tanks within the pit system, largely removing the need for a separate oil store. This particular pit has fixed work platforms, although height adjustable travelling platforms are usually the norm.

For diagnostic purposes, the pit is equipped with two suspension shakers units and a separate roller brake tester bay. The lubrication pumps are from Hartex’s Graco range, which is one for the most durable lubrication pumps on the market today.

All our pit systems are designed in detail using 3D CAD facilities that allow our clients to visualise what they are getting. This is usually an exciting phase for the mechanics and leading hands because we can change positions of jacks, or hose reels or tanks etc on a computer screen to instantly gauge the results of that change. Only when all stakeholders have signed off on these CAD plans do we commence cutting steel.

All our suspended ceiling truck and bus service pits are manufactured in Sydney pre-assembled before dispatch to ensure all components fit together to ensure a timely installation on site. This is very important for both you the operator, and also for the principle builder on your construction project.
