ProfilGate k55 - for very narrow wheels/rollers
The closely spaced supporting bars of the plastic grating and the narrow brush strips prevent rollers and wheels up to a width of 20 mm from "falling" into the combs of the grating. This ensures a smooth passage and protects vibration-sensitive cargo. Furthermore, unwanted vibrations are prevented by the multiple support of the roller running surfaces on several supporting bars. The 10 mm deep collecting space under the brush strips offers sufficient space for the collection of the rubbed-off dirt.
While the vehicles pass through the cleaning area without any loss of time, the running surfaces are cleaned at the same time by the patented brush strips. The separated dirt is collected in stainless steel trays under the gratings. After removing the grates, the trays are easy to clean. Since the dirt falls downwards into the stainless steel tub, it cannot be picked up again by the following vehicles.
The load capacity of the ProfilGate k55 is 2.5 t total weight due to the material and construction.
The cleaning fields, which are only 55 mm high, are embedded in the ground at ground level. This creates a passageway that all vehicles must pass through. The plastic gratings with special brush strips are placed in stainless steel tubs that collect the dirt. The diagonally arranged special brushes (patented) clean the treads of the wheels, castors and tyres automatically and mechanically while crossing.

The grids of the ProfilGate k55 are available in the standard sizes 1 x 1 and 1.5 x 1.
We recommend at least three contacts of the tread with the brush field for a tyre cleaning - then dirt deposits are removed by 90%!
The ProfilGate st-models can easily be supplemented with the ProfilGate dryzone in the event of high moisture entrainment. Find out more about the ProfilGate dryzone here.

Typical layout of the ProfilGate st-model
The width of the cleaning area corresponds to the size of the driveway. The area must be wide enough to ensure that vehicles of all sizes fit on the grates.
The length of the cleaning area will determine how thoroughly the tyres are cleaned. For intensive and optimal dirt removal, we recommend that the grating is long enough for the tyres in question to roll over the area approx. 3 to 4 times.
