Our Pit Cover Safety System is easy to assemble and can be easily installed. Westerbeke Pit Cover Systems are in use across the United States and across the world providing fall protection to automotive, truck, bus and rail service centers.

Westerbeke Pit Cover Safety System has been specifically designed to provide safe fall protection for open automotive service pits. Easy to operate by your lube tech, each pit net opens by sliding the net on a galvanized steel cable installed along the open pit sidewalls. A typical pit safety net takes only minutes to open end-to-end.

Easy to install, each Pit Cover Safety System includes all hardware needed for operation. Welding of steel hardware at the open pit corners is normally required.
