The Perma Pit has two sides, a back and a front curb angle that act as a concrete form. This permanent pit form allows for a neat and clean appearance. Everything is there to form the pit to the right size which eliminates costly mistakes. The Perma Pit bolts together using six bolts which makes it quick and easy to set up, saving time and money. No time is wasted returning to the site to strip wood forms. The Perma Pit system is inexpensive as compared to the materials and labor required to form a conventional pit for a dock leveler.
Perma Tech offers Hot Dip Galvanizing on our Perma Pits, Curb Angles, and other steel components.
Hot Dip Galvanizing is different from all other coating processes because it produces a metallurgical bond between the zinc and the steel which it protects.
Between the zinc and the steel are two identifiable layers of a created alloy consisting of zinc and iron in varying proportions.
While the technique of application had evolved, the principles of galvanizing remain essentially unchanged.
The result is an all but impenetrable integrated surface which prevents corrosion more effectively than any other process available.
Performance varies according to the type of structure and its atmospheric environment, but many applications will have a conservative life cycle in excess of forty years.
Comparable painted surfaces will require periodic maintenance and repainting during the same timeline.
