Pit Shell:

The Model 6200 pit shell is a one piece molded GRP unit composed of 30% high quality glass fiber and 70% polyester resin. The shell wall is nominally three-eighths (0.375) inches (9.5mm) thick. The inside dimensions of the shell are 25.5 inches (650 mm) square by 40 inches (1015 mm) wide. The shell interior is coated with a resin-rich gel coat having a white pigment to provide a bright clean environment and appearance.

Pit Cover:

The Model 6200 pit cover is a two piece, non-skid, non-sparking assembly consisting of one stationary outer ring and an inner access cover. The inner cover can be opened a full 180 degrees with a 25lb (11.4 Kg) single hand lift on a non-weight bearing hinge. When open an 18 inch (460 mm) diameter opening is exposed. Each cover is manufactured from a high strength aluminum-zinc alloy. Covers conform to Federal Specification QQ-A-601F alloy 712.0 (formerly 40E).

Load Testing and Quality Assurance:

Each cover is guaranteed to withstand a dual 200,000 lb (90720 Kg) load applied over 200 square inches (1290 cm²) tire footprint areas placed anywhere on the cover (1000 psi (70.3 Kg/cm²) rating). This represents a 4:1 safety factor.
