New Benchmark In Lift Pit Maintenance And Management

New Benchmark In Lift Pit Maintenance And Management
15 May 2020 | Updated 27 October 2020
 

In a bid to transform the operational safety and maintenance of lift pits, market-leaders, Crownstone, launch a ground-breaking system to control water flow and oil separation.

Pitsafe™ is a new lift pit waterproofing system, which employs an innovative combination of chemical and membrane solutions, all carefully engineered to create a BS8102-compliant environment for the housing of sensitive electrical and mechanical lift equipment, whilst completely eliminating the risk of pumping oil into drains.

It  has been uniquely designed to eliminate the risk of water coming into contact with the mechanical workings of lift systems, meaning that Public Liability insurance requirements, British Standards and environmental legislation can all be met.  The system’s deployment of self-contained and accessible units for the direct management of both permeated water and hydraulic oils, ensures that the demands for maintenance are proactively facilitated.
