VIDEO: Premier Pits expands Pit Safety range
Premier Pits has added a new cover to their range of Pit Safety range.
The prefabricated steel pit manufacturer has added the Premier Hinged Cover to its range. The air-operated fall restraint consists of individual banks of 2.5m steel-mesh panels. Each panel is operated by pneumatic cylinders connected to a central control box for an easy one-person operation. The stairs of the pit are covered by individual sections which are manually lifted and have the additional benefit of acting as a hand rail for ingress and egress.
Premier Pits offers a wide variety of options to cater for health and safety around the pit, however retrofitting covers, such as retractable covers, can require extensive groundworks to form storage areas for the cover, or, if this is not possible, the pit length must be reduced, meaning a loss of working space. The Premier Hinged Cover enables clients to protect their staff with minimal disruption while keeping the maximum working space. There is no requirement for a storage cassette, meaning that a pit of any length can be covered with minimal working space lost.
