AV Access Rail Jacks

AV Access Rail Jacks

AV Access has the capacity, experience and competent to undertake detailed inspection and refurbishment of carriage lifting jacks. We have undertaken a number of projects taking the older design of jacks used within British Rail for upwards of 40 years and brought them up to meet the current LOLER regulations and the PUWER requirements for safe controls.

As part of these projects we have carried out detailed inspections of jack components in a stripped condition to ascertain the safe condition, replacement parts are manufactured and elements upgraded to meet current legislation where required. The control system is replaced, the old amp meter display is replaced with a synchronised control system to enable multi-car lifts to be safely undertaken.

AV Access has manufactured a large number of stand reaction brackets for lifting vehicles as well as designing, manufacturing and testing specialist reaction brackets to allow the use of existing jacks with new fleets. We have designed and replace the adjustable anvils on vehicle lifting jacks to enable a lower starting lift point to be achieved giving greater flexibility  to the depots involved.
