Console Mounted Applications
The SIH Slide Bracket is applied directly to the console.
Once it is in place, operators can make multi-directional
adjustments to the position of the pedals to achieve a
customised, comfortable and ergonomic fit.
Floor Mounted Applications - Floor Frame
Once the older pedal assembly is removed, the SIH Floor
frame is simply applied to the floor of the cabin. This can
be performed accurately with minimal planning, thanks
to the removable spacer bar, which is removed after
installation to minimise clutter in the cabin.
Floor Mounted Applications - BE Adaptor Mount
A quick and easy retrofit means minimal downtime for
BE pedal users. Because the drill holes are positioned to
match the original BE floor plate exactly, the unit can be
swapped virtually on the fly, and your SIH pedal
assembly up and running immediately - no measuring,
no drilling, no waiting.
