Fabricated Inspection Pits

We can design, manufacture and supply a fabricated inspection pit for your MOT or ATF testing facility. 

 

Although we do supply standard pre-fabricated steel inspection pits to suit Class 4 or Class 4/7 MOT installations, in some instances the limitations; or indeed lack thereof, does offer scope for a bespoke pit to be designed and manufactured. This can offer numerous benefits to garages such as improving the workflow through the premises or to allow specific markets to be captured.

DVSA approved MOT & ATL testing pits are all defined as a minimum dimensions. For Class 4 testing stations a minimum working length of 3.9m is required - for Class 7 installations a 6m working length is required. We tend to set both pits at the same width of 900mm which we find from experience is an appropriate width to use for a majority of vehicles - the working depth tends to be 1.6m as this is the minimum depth pit that can be used when testing Classes 4 & 7 on a combined class bay.

Standard MOT pits always include Air Pipework with multiple PCL connections and lighting which is pre-wired to minimise post installation work. However we can also add storage areas for items of equipment - such as play detector controllers.

We use a 7mm material thickness as standard, and this high wall strength material is further reinforced with many external ribs which are pre-welded to the structure. These additional ribs are crutial in preventing the pit twisting when the concrete is poured around it. 

Provided that the pit is installed to our instructions, we offer a 10 year guarantee on our fabrications.
