Features of the PitProtect Pit Cover

  • Safe System: In challenging and busy environments, workers can forget that are working around an open void (open pits). The PitProtect provides both fall prevention and working platforms.
  • Easy to Carry & Install: PitProtect is made of aluminium. This means that it is light and can be transported and installed by a single person, saving you time and money.
  • Fully Adjustable: PitProtect Pit Cover (inspection pit safety) is a lightweight concertina system that can be fully adjustable in both length and width, so it can cover a void that is uneven in width.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is it a legal requirement for me to cover my inspection pit?

    The Work at Height Regulations 2005 apply wherever there is a risk of a fall liable to cause personal injury, which means they are relevant to work around maintenance pits and put extra responsibilities on employers overseeing this work.

  • What size pit cover do I need?

    We have three sizes of the PitProtect, the 1100, 1300 & 1500. They differ only in width as they all extend to 2m in length. PitProtect 1100 has a width of 0.9m – 1.1m, PitProtect 1300 has a width of 1.1m – 1.3m and PitProtect 1500 has a width of 1.3m – 1.5m.

    Once you’ve determined which width is better for your pit, you simply need to divide the length of your pit by 2 (meters). If you land on a half number, round up to ensure your whole pit will be covered.

  • What is the maximum working load of the PitProtect?

    The maximum working load of both the small and large pit covers is 150kg. Once it is installed, you can remove it easily with no tools. The Pit Protect is a working platform and fall protection system only, so you can drive on it.
