Video: Movetech UK Vehicle Access Turntables

Vehicle turntables provide effective access solutions

From improving car parking provision in city centre office blocks, to enabling truck access to sites that would not otherwise be accessible.

Units can be built for internal or external use and for integration into a suspended slab or ground slab, as required. Most are based on standard, tried and tested design models, and in all cases they offer low noise, ease of use and a reliable, long life with minimal service and maintenance costs.

In each case, dedicated Movetech UK engineers work closely with architects, surveyors and project engineers from design up to commissioning of the turntable, as well as providing a responsive post‐commissioning support service. The Company also offers overall design assistance to help meet current Construction (Design and Management) (CDM) regulations.

Standard or Bespoke Design

Movetech UK works with standard and bespoke designs to build structural turntables to rotate any vehicle, from the smallest of cars in an underground car park, to an HGV in a city centre retail delivery area, not forgetting military aircraft and vehicles.

Where a very low profile pit is required, the turntable can be floated on a film of air using Movetech UK’s Hovair air bearing technology. This system may be preferred where the turntable is to be installed in a suspended slab.

Vehicle Turntable options:
  • Internal or external use
  • Weather, corrosion and environmental protection
  • Integration into a ground slab or suspended slab
  • Electric, pneumatic or hydraulic drives
  • Position control
  • Fixed or variable speed, soft start and/or stop
  • Remote control
  • Security features
  • Safety features
  • Low profile requirements

Benefits of installing a Vehicle Turntable

Assists manoeuvring in restricted areas – vehicle turntables can assist with vehicle manoeuvring in restricted areas. This also makes the working area a much safer place by reducing vehicle movement.

Frees up space for more profitable use – installing a vehicle turntable can help free up valuable storage space for more profitable use. A smaller yard area is required when a turntable is installed.

Helps with planning requirements – vehicle turntables can aid in helping to meet local planning requirements – when vehicles are required to only enter/exit a facility in forward gear.

Supports logistics & environmental issues – vehicle turntables can improve logistics by reducing delivery turn around times, also improving environmental pollution, vehicle emissions and tyre scrub.

Reliable and cost-effective servicing plans

For many of our customers reliability is key and critical to their business performance. So regular and efficient maintenance is necessary. Obviously we do provide full O&M manuals and some people will wish to maintain their own equipment.

For those that do not have those facilities we have our own maintenance facilities to visit their site and provide that service routine for them. Our trained engineers are fully qualified to offer the full service requirements and we produce appropriate service records for all work undertaken.
