Gravity Skate Wheel Conveyors

An alternative to gravity rollers is skate wheels. Skate wheels are suitable for lighter loads, and are available in zinc plated steel or PVC. They generally move faster than standard rollers, and are used for flat bottom items. They can also handle items that are wider than the width of the conveyor

Gravity storage roller racking

Gravity roller racking provides an ideal solution for assembly cells and also order fulfillment lines. It is up to 80% more productive compared to conventional static racking.

The use of Carton flow racking also allows staff to be more productive by reducing manual handling. As a UK manufacturer Spaceguard is able to build first in first out, or push back racking, to suit your specific products.

Lean Gravity Conveyor Workstations

Gravity roller conveyors are ideal for the inclusion into assembly or order fulfilment work stations. Including the use of roller conveyors results in the reduction of manual handling, and subsequently the improvement of personnel working ergonomics.

The workstation can also include packing aids, scales, lighting, and IT equipment, and as a result yields additional productivity improvements.

These units are designed to suit your specific requirements. Ideal in this case to improve productivity and ergonomics whilst also reducing operator manual handling, giving ongoing payback on your investment.

Pedestrian access lift up gates

The conveyor lift up gate. Allows for access through fixed conveyor lines. These are generally for warehouse pathways or emergency access routes.

Spaceguard lift up gates are manufactured using a pivot bush. Giving additional strength to the gate. The weight of the gate section is supported by industrial gas springs. This as a result makes the gate light to operate. When positioning the gate - note should be taken to the product on the conveyor. To ensure it doesn't fall off.

Incidentally it may be possible to use the gate section as a stop. This section of roller track should also only be used in horizontal applications with either gravity or driven roller.

Transfer Cars

The Roller Conveyor Transfer Car runs on floor mounted tracks to travel between the gravity lines. Built to suit application, for example, board handling.

What is a Gravity Conveyor?

A gravity conveyor is an un-powered roller conveyor which uses either manual force or, when used on a decline, the momentum of gravity to move products along the conveyor.

By design the rollers are simple to remove and replace, allowing for fast and cost effective maintenance. As a rule, when the gravity conveyor is used on an incline the product must have sufficient weight to allow the conveyor rollers to turn. If particularly heavy loads are used then the conveyor may require additional braking.

Below you will find more details of the gravity conveyors and accessories we manufacture, please see our full conveyor product range for other types of conveyors.
