Workshop Service Pit Lighting Standards
The hazardous environment standards AS/NZ 67009 define all truck and bus service pits as class 1 zone 2 as a minimum, which means special explosion proof light fittings are required to comply under the code.
The heavy duty light fittings supplied by Hartex have a die-cast aluminum chassis with toughened poly carbonate lens durable for the environment. All light fittings come with class 1 zone 2 certificates that we provide to the electrician on site in order to prepare the dossier to submit to the electrical authority.
Special brackets to direct light to the underside of the vehicle for Optimum illumination.
The chassis is made from cast aluminium, the promatic diffuser is moulded in fracture resistant polycarbonate.
Secure IP65 Seal
The lense is securely screwed into the chassis using stainless steel socket head cap screws to ensure a secure IP65 seal.
Workshop Pit Ventilation Standards
In order to maintain a safe working area and to comply with AS/NZ 60079 the pit must be ventilated to achieve a minimum of 6 air changes per hour. This means all electrical devices in the pit have to be interlocked to the pit fume extraction system.
With Hartex Service pits you get a complete pre-wired control box complying with AS3000 to supply power to pit lights, sump pumps, heavy vehicle jacking systems, suspension testers, and any other electrical accessories you may require in your customised pit.
Too often we see drawings and designs for pit ventilation systems with just 3 or 4 air extraction points in a 15m long pit. This is woefully inadequate and does not comply with the standard because this only provides for localised air extraction and there will still remain pockets in the pit with dangerous levels of flammable, explosive or harmful gasses.
You can trust Hartex engineering as the only Australian manufacturer of pre fabricated truck and bus service pits to design a ventilation system that suits your specific pit length or type.
Custom Ventilation Design
Hartex custom designs the ventilation systems to suit the workshop and pit lengths to ensure it meets the standard.
