Regal Cement maintains full control over their fleet’s maintenance and servicing on-site due to the versatility of the EWP. Enabling full access to all vehicles in their fleet, the EWP eliminates the need to take vehicles off-site; thereby reducing transport costs and more importantly, reducing fleet downtime.
The EWP further improves these facilities as it provides easy and comfortable access to the undercarriage of their diverse fleet thereby encouraging quality technicians on-site.
Due to the pit being located in a multipurpose warehouse, 2 mobile bridges were designed specifically to suit heavy traffic
Pit ventilation integrated into the platform floor. Personnel access panel in the floor allows access to the base of the pit.
The new pit was narrowed at one end to accommodate the axels of the forklift
…its the best way I’ve come across to work on fork lifts…then we can do the frontend loader just as easily.
