Why focus on the corbelled pit rather than the right pit? Maintenance of heavy vehicles in Europe and Canada

The right repair pit is probably the mmost common in mechanical workshops for heavy duty vehicule like trucks, buses, or rails cars. However, there is another solution to intervene effectively under these imposing machines: the prefab steel maintenance pit with corbelling. This type of pit offers only advantages and should be preferred to the classic version according to Dalis Pit Covers your expert in prefabricated repair pit in North America, Canada or European country.

The principle of the prefabricated repair pit with corbelling

Fosse de maintenance préfabriquée avec encorbellement en Europe et au Canada

The maintenance pit with corbelling is inspired by an architectural principle to carry a load overhanging a wall. This maintenance pit is prefabricated so that the upper part is cantilevered relative to the base. The width on the ground matches the distance of the tires of the vehicle which is placed above the pit and the buried part offers a larger space.

Why prefer the steel pit with corbelling rather than the right pit?

Thanks to its projecting construction and the material in which it is designed, the prefabricated steel corbelled maintenance pit offers substantial advantages that will make life easier for your operators.

Increased working comfort for the mechanic at the bottom of the pit

The space available at the bottom of the pit with corbelling being superior, the mechanic finds himself with a greater margin of maneuver to evolve and move. This freedom of movement will enable him to intervene on the machine parked above him more efficiently and more quickly. This type of prefabricated pit presents a real added value in terms of ergonomics and comfort of work for the operator.

The guarantee of a prefabricated waterproof maintenance pit thanks to the steel

Many heavy vehicle maintenance pits are dug out of the ground and then concreted. The disadvantage of this method is the risk of infiltration of water and moisture caused by contact with the ground. Indeed the concrete at its limits at the level of the sealing. The pit with prefabricated cantilever protects you from this kind of inconvenience. Designed in steel, it has a perfect impermeability guaranteeing a dry, secure and healthy work space for the mechanic.
