P.E.I. manufactures these moving walkway/pit covers for horizontal, mobile surfaces to meet accident prevention and safety regulations. These units cover the upper part of the machine pit whose base is below the walking surface and allow the crossing of the pit by anyone, thus avoiding possible accidents or damage to people or equipment which could occur with the pit uncovered.
The variable speed drive system, which allows for mechanical speed control, makes the drive system independent from the general machine control system. Size and speed are established by the customer and studied by our technical staff in order to obtain optimal operation.

The company
