Health & Safety

Premier Pits work closely with clients to develop new and improved
health and safety features for use with vehicle pits. These range
from simple temporary barriers to sophisticated, motorised, retractable
covers. The company see health and safety as an important aspect of the modern workshop, and are therefore spending increasing amounts of money on research
and development in this area.

Personnel Safety Covers
Aluminium panels one metre long, easy to fit and move. Could be used as a bridge.

Motorised Personnel Safety Covers
Driven by electric motors and manufactured from aluminium plates, interlocking together to form a fully adjustable, retractable belt.

The covers can be fitted to existing and new pits supplied by Premier Pits to
provide the following benefits.

  • Enhanced safety for workshop personnel
  • A quick and easy way to cover pits when not in use
  • Readily adjustable to suit the length of the vehicle being worked upon
  • A significant contributor towards enhanced efficiency and workshop tidiness
  • More likely to be used than present alternatives because of their ease of use.

Budget Safety Cover

For many years the motorised personnel safety cover has been making a significant contribution towards improving safety in vehicle workshops.  To help companies with their safety commitments during these more difficult economic time, Premier Pits have introduced the Budget Safety Cover.  Based on the same concept, this new cover offers similar benefits at a budget price.  See below features.

  • May be fitted onto new and all existing pits
  • Manual pull over operation
  • Mounted onto track and fitted onto the jacking rail
  • Yellow for maximum awareness
  • Fire retardant

Dalis Safety Cover

The new Dalis cover is supplied through our French agents, Reus Equipment.  This is an air operated, mattress style cover.  Support arms are controlled by a panel on the wall and once fully stretched across the pit, the mattress then rolls out onto the arms to fully cover the pit.  This addition now provides customers with the choice of three pit cover options to suit varying budgets and requirements.

Retractable Safety Barrier

12, 14 or 16m lengths available. Easy to use and makes an effective barrier around the pits.

Ball Type Hand Rails

A cost effective way of forming a bay separation.

Floor boards same colour as ball type hand rails.

Chevron yellow and black anti slip floor boards
