kerb angle pre-fabricated steel workshop Pits

The Galvanized Kerb Angle steel works to accommodate the Hartex Jacking system. The steel frame is designed to take the loads imposed by heavy vehicle jacking systems and prevents fatigue and cracking of the concrete pit walls.

This option is ideal for clients with close links to the building industry and are confident in building a concrete pit but would still like the option of incorporating a heavy vehicle jacking system into their new service pit.

The Kerb angle super structure is designed to withstand the stresses placed by modern heavy vehicle jacking systems without which a traditional concrete pit edge will crack and fatigue over time.

The Kerb Angle is a registered Hartex Engineering Design and is fabricated in our purpose built manufacturing facility in Sydney. The steel work is then transported to the site where it is assembled, levelledand concreted in.

Hartex drop in pit systems can also be designed with side access tunnels. Many truck service pits and bus service pits are too short for the types of vehicles being serviced on them. It is mandatory under the OH&S act to have a clear path of entry and exit for a mechanic working in a pit in the event they are injured or a rescue is to be mounted due to other emergencies like smoke or fire events.

If the service pit is shorter than the fleet being serviced, it is possible to meet the obligations under the act by incorporating a side access tunnel into the service pit to allow mechanics access into the service pit at any time, even if a truck or bus covers the entire pit opening. This is quite common on many NSW Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) inspection pits.
