  • Curve guards help guide packages under accumulation circumstances when packages of varying sizes and shapes begin to build up causing a potential risk of packages being pushed off the conveyor around the curve. It protects packages from falling by creating a solid surface for them to follow. It has a flexible design to allow them to open and close with the flex of the conveyor.
  • Swing stick extension bridges the gap between the flexible conveyors at ground level up to the bed of the trailer for unloading without a dock.
  • T-junction provides a section of conveyor with multi-directional skate wheels that helps the operator to manually sort packages by changing the direction of package flow while keeping the flexibility of the conveyors. It is designed to connect with flexible gravity and power conveyors using couplers. It can also be used with three or four conveyors. Using three conveyors requires the T-junction to have a backstop to assist the operator with choosing the direction of package flow. Without the backstop, four conveyors can be attached allowing package to flow in any direction the operator chooses.
