Walk-on pit covers are a special category of heavy-duty roll-up covers, designed to cover machine ways or pits. Steelflex covers are ideal for applications where exposed ways or pits create a safety-hazard for workers or workers may need a walk-on surface to access machinery.
The shade consists of aluminum or steel ribs bonded to stainless steel, and customized with the appropriate options and take-up hardware. Steelflex covers can be rolled up using an air-motor or into a scroll, and can be made to cover openings up to 8 meters wide. These covers can also be supplied in a custom enclosure that can be mounted at the end of the bed way or pit or on a gantry for a large machine. One of the main advantages is the flexibility to both sides, which enables the cover to be guided through a machine column onto other levels by using e.g. idlers. Another economic benefit is that segments can be individually replaced in case of any damage.
