Where valves are installed in areas of limited accessibility, confined space or hazardous environments extension spindles (also referred to as shaft extensions or pedestals) are employed to move the operating element at an ergonomic position to ease safe operation. We can fabricate such extensions in a variety of materials to suit site-specific requirements. Complimenting support bracketry with optional bearings and valve/hydrant operating T-keys are available.

Handy hint: Universal joints can be used to allow off-set to navigate obstacles.
