Following a brief closure, we are pleased to say that we now feel we are able to return to our sites.  The company have instigated a phased return for staff and will gradually return to normal operations. 

We have introduced strict measures regarding social distancing and hand hygiene to all staff and suppliers delivering to our sites.  Clear policies and training have been issued to the teams to ensure the safety of our staff, suppliers and customers. 

Where possible staff will also be able to work from home, or on a rota basis on site.  Communication and service will be uninterrupted, as all key staff are available by email and phone.

Many different applications

The application range of Safeglide® chutes is vast, ranging from a simple solution to convey goods down from a mezzanine floor to ground floor level, to multiple chutes being integrated into large-scale, multi-tier sortation systems.

Items large and small

Safeglide® spiral chutes have been designed to handle almost anything, including plastic tote boxes, cardboard cartons, airport baggage, polythene bags, newspaper bundles and sacks or a mix of products on the same chute, all at a controlled speed of descent.

A range of options designed to integrate with any system

With eight different Safeglide® profiles, ranging from 300mm to 1500mm radius, which can be configured to interface with almost any roller, belt or slatted conveyor type sortation system, there is almost always a solution to fit.
