Safe Conveyor Introduces Easy Access Slide Gate™ Conveyor
An innovative conveyor system that features a gate mechanism that works like a sliding draw to open and close without gas springs is being introduced. This new design called Slide Gate™ is a unique approach to creating pathways for easy access.

Conveyors in the factory act like the streets in a busy city, efficiently flowing material and products from place-to-place. Gates are the crosswalks that keep us from being trapped by the conveyor lines. Safe Conveyors new Slide Gate™ is a simpler and safer way to provide quick and easy access around the factory floor. To walk through the line, you only need to lift the handle, slide the gate, walk through and then slide the gate closed. Sensors automatically stop and restart the conveyor when you are through.
This new Slide Gate™ is part of Safe Conveyor’s modular power belt system. The conveyor is powered by a 25W variable speed drive and has opening ranges up to 32” (The same size as most doors.) Overall unit lengths for the conveyor with gate start at 84” long by 28” high and are available in sides from 9” – 24” wide. They are shipped fully assembled and can by quickly installed on stands with “T” slot hardware.
