Suspended Ceiling workshop Pits for trucks & buses

When maximising the number of trucks and buses that need to be serviced at your facility is important, then nothing beats the efficiency and throughput of a Hartex Suspended Ceiling pit™. 

Pioneered by Hartex almost 30 years ago, this style of pit provides an expansive uninterrupted work area under a solid steel deck 2.3m high. The generous working height of the deck means the area under the suspended ceiling pit can be used to accommodate bulk oil tanks, consumables like oil filters and incorporate lubrication and heavy vehicle jacking systems.

The 100T roll over capacity of a Hartex two level servicing suspended ceiling pit means that a fully loaded road train combination can be elevated on jacks, serviced, and then sent on its way in a matter of minutes. This is the preferred pit system of most busy transport and bus fleet organisations and truck dealerships.

The Hartex pit jackspictured are catered to suit the specific needs of your fleet and is another innovation by Hartex to make the service pit environment safer and more productive to use.  Check out our complete range of Jacking Systems & Beams to suit your specific work or fleet.
