ATF Inspection Pits
Here at Codi International we offer ATF Inspection Pits and Pit Lanes made to order and we can supply, install and maintain your ATF Lane. Due to the nature and specialist requirements of individual workshops we feel it’s always best to speak to our customers direct, so please call us for more information about the packages we could offer you.
All pits are manufactured to conform to DVSA regulations for the testing of coaches, HGV’s, vans etc. We can design your pit to be compliant even if your building layout dictates your exit tunnels have to be manufactured in a different orientation to the norm. ATF inspection pits are manufactured with S275/S355 steel and are braced with 6mm thick braces at no more than 1m intervals. Side wall are pressed from 5mm thick steel and floors from 6mm at base durbar plate. The underfloor channels and angles are pre-drilled to allow leveling and bolting down to a pre-cast base to a +-3mm tolerance on site.
All floor and side walls are fully seam welded with integrated twin jacking rails. Subway tunnels are covered with 30mm tick steel plates to allow the weight of vehicles to pass over the tunnel. The staircase tunnel has a K1 building regulations staircase for entry and the secondary tunnel houses an escape ladder exit. A central sump collects any spillage with graduated floor towards the sump from both ends of the pit. Twin side rails for elevated working height inside the pits are fitted as standard including the sliding aluminium platform. The full length services recess will house all lights, air and 110v sockets maintaining a free working area and plentiful light to the pit and underside of vehicles.
All pits are externally coated with two coats of zinc phosphate and internally with two coats zinc phosphate primer followed by high gloss white enamel. Flooring is finished in black. area and plentiful light to the pit and underside of vehicles. A hydraulic side box can be integrated into a side wall to house the hydraulic pump associated with the play detectors. Large integrated storage side boxes up to 2m wide can also be fitted during manufacture to house oil drums etc. All of our pits come with pre-installation braces fitted to the top jacking rails to maintain accuracy of the rails during the installation and cover boards to keep them internally clean.
