Integrated Lube Services announced it has reached a deal with Keller Equipment Supply to distribute its EnviroLube vehicle service trench system to the Western Canada market. The EnviroLube is built of fiberglass and steel and has several advantages over traditional vehicle lifts or concrete service pits, the companies claim.
The EnviroLube is built in 12-ft. long modules that can be configured in different designs for trucking, transit and automotive service. A steel rail along the top edge of the unit allows for rolling jacks and drain carts and an attachment point for a safety cover.
Floor surfaces are made of fiberglass grating for a non-slip surface and to allow spilled oil and other fluids to drain to an integral sump.
The interior is bright white with an easy-to-clean gel-coat finish combined with built-in lighting to make chassis inspections fast and efficient.
Integrated Lube Services founder Jerry Steele said the system prevents oil-saturated work surfaces, groundwater intrusion and soil contamination, while eliminating the need for vehicle lifting. It can be installed in new facilities or retrofit into existing ones. The sections are set in place on a concrete pad about six feet below the service area floor. The EnviroLube is anchored to the slab and then encased in concrete. It comes with a built-in stair system with non-slip treads.
Subgrade chases are used to route oil, air, electrical and ventilation lines. Installation takes about one week.
