Each of the three styles American surplus offers serves different and unique functions for various applications. All gates serve the same purpose of allowing passage for personnel, forklifts, etc. in warehouses or factories where space does not permit for something such as a conveyor walkover to circumvent lines of conveyor. Gates provide immediate access through conveyor systems without the need for additional equipment and are built right into your existing conveyor system.
A manual conveyor gate, sometimes referred to as hinged gate conveyor, are available with either rollers or skatewheels depending on your preferences. These conveyor gates are typically affixed with a handle to make opening easy. Simply use the handle to pull up and raise the section of conveyor to allow passage.
Power and spring-loaded conveyor gates are essentially the same thing. Both feature a mechanism to allow for easier lifting with a mechanism allowing for simple spring-assisted maneuvering. This is useful as longer gated sections can become heavy and difficult to lift. The only real difference between power and spring-loaded is that a power conveyor gate features a section of powered conveyor instead of standard gravity.
American Surplus has dozens of used conveyor gates in stock to fit any conveyor system. All of our used equipment is tested and inspected prior to shipment to ensure that only the highest quality used items are sent to our customers.
