Pre-fabricated Drop in Inspection Pit for RMS

SRH Transport run a fleet of tanker trucks and wanted an inspection pit facility to ensure their trucks were safe and reliable. SRH came to us to design and build an RMS (RTA) compliant pit for their new depot and still make it functional for their day to day service requirements. RMS truck inspection pits are usually 1600mm deep, which is too deep for a traditional service pit where depths are usually 1400mm.

Hartex Engineering developed a sliding work platform that enabled mechanics to get back to a 1400mm working depth when the pit was to be used as a service pit. When not in use the platform retracts under the sets of stairs out of the way. The pit is equipped with VTEQ roller brake tester and suspension tester and the Hartex heavy vehicle jacking system.

Hartex’ s experienced engineers and site supervisors came up with a detailed project plan that broke the whole construction plan step by step so that every process was optimised to save time on site.
