Better do the right thing!
Beltcover, Gough Plastics' unique conveyor belt cover system, not only keeps your material in and the weather out, it saves you time and money. With occupational health and safety regulations in effect in various locations around Australia, it is essential for industries to cover their loads. So we invite you to come undercover for a better look at Beltcover.
Beltcover is the first product of its kind to be built solely for the purpose of covering conveyor belts. The moulded sections are made from polyethylene that is tough, durable and extremely long lasting. It has qualities that are far superior to corrugated iron and other alternatives that have been tried over the years. Beltcover is cost-effective, especially in the long run. Once installed, downtime for servicing is minimized due to its easy access features.
There are two styles of Beltcover to choose from, depending on your needs:
- An all-weather ‘roof’
- An on-belt containment
Side Covers for wind protection and Spill Trays for preventing dangerous roll-back spill are available in varying sizes on request.
Better for you
Beltcover is the perfect cover for any application where stringent environmental regulations for noise, corrosion and dust control are in effect.
- The on-belt version promotes a cleaner, healthier environment by containing dust and fibres and reducing air pollution.
- The all-weather roof protects your product from the elements and protects the belt from UV degradation.
- Exposure to potentially harmful dust and fibres in the air is greatly reduced.
- Reduces noise pollution.
Beltcover’s modular design offers ultimate flexibility when it comes to fitting and maintenance. The modular sections have an effective length of 2m or 1.77m, with a model to suit the required belt or stringer width. Upgrades to the range include 500mm bracket spacings to make fabrication and installation much easier. The light-weight sections are easily maneuverable for convenient installation. Individual sections can also be cut to shorter lengths.
The covers can be easily retrofitted to your existing conveyor but the best option is to design them in from the start. For special applications, Beltcover can be custom-made to whatever specifications you require. Plastic Fabrication is also available.
- Beltcovers for belts in the 600-750mm range are only 25kg with our largest Beltcover for a belt size of 1800mm-2000mm weighing only 70kg, so they are easily opened by one or two people.
- A moulded, hinged system allows for easy installation and removal for maintenance. No more cranes or strains.
- Access to the belt is an easy, one-person, ‘flip-top’ operation from the side.
