ALCO’s motorized pit covers are excellent at protecting your machine way. They can completely cover a pit and prevent accidents from occurring. You can use them in different facilities. The motorized pit covers are available as both medium and heavy-duty.
Walk On Pit Covers Increase Safety
There is also an option to order walk-on covers which will secure the ground from fall hazards. Such protective measures are vital for anyone who works in the oil and gas as well as auto industries. Pits with a depth of more than one meter can be dangerous and require protection. Preparing in advance is important for the safety of anyone passing by the pit. It is important to add support rib spacing. By taking inputs like weight load and unsupported span, we can calculate the proper tub size and how much spacing to leave.
Are you looking for a cover for your machines? Do you want to create a safe working environment for everyone to enjoy? ALCO’s custom made motorized pit covers will fit any application while consuming a small amount of energy. They are strong, efficient, and easy to use.
Pit Covers For All Industries
Medium Duty Motorized Pit Covers
These covers will offer protection against hot chips and coolant loads. They have low deflection over wide spans which guarantees better results than the typical fabric shade protection. All widths can be used over a spring-loaded roller. The surface uses stainless steel and has aluminum extrusions. They provide additional strength and protection.
The covers are useful for these applications and environments:
- Moderate hot chip or coolant loads
- They can function in high-temperature areas
- They can provide protection for different types of machines
- Some notable examples are milling, metalworking, and drilling machines
Heavy-Duty And Walk On Pit Covers
ALCO’s heavy-duty pit covers will protect machine ways from large loads and accidental drops. With such tools at your disposal, the workers will never fear to fall in unprotected openings. Thanks to the stable walking surface, you can quickly and safely reach your working machines and other equipment during maintenances.
The covers are useful for heavy-duty construction operations and are resistant to high temperatures, coolants, and abrasive materials. The stainless steel surface can withstand negative effects such as impacts, hazardous chemicals, large weights, and more. The walk-on machine pit covers can contain large tanks for long periods of time. Some drive methods could include an air motor with a brake, electric motors, or manual operations with scroll take-ups.
