Roach Manual Conveyor Gates are conveyor sections that can retract or pivot vertically to gain passage for personnel, equipment, carts, forklift trucks, & walkways on a production line. Manual gate assemblies are one of the most common conveyor accessories. They can reduce the overall footprint of a production line by removing detours for access. They are safe, ergonomic, and eliminate the need for employees to walk-over and duck-under the conveyor system.
Manual Gates consist of two conveyor sections, one fixed and one jointed. The second (jointed) section is made into a non-buffering section to keep it empty for as long a time as possible, thereby allowing people to pass through even if the line has a heavy flow.
Manual Conveyor Gates are simple and cost-effective. Gates include hardware and conveyor section. Roach Conveyor’s Manual Gates include guarding and locking mechanisms to keep the gate open or closed.
