Protect your conveyor belts from impact damage.

ASGCO®’s Impact Cradle Beds are (patent pending) designed to provide protection to your conveyor belt from impact damage from large rocks, tramp metal, roof bolts or bucket teeth can put a stop to operations. Our modular style impact beds provide impact protection for the conveyor belt, as well as a tool to help control spillage in the conveyor-loading zone. The Impact Cradle Bed support the conveyor belt across the entire width using our unique semi-U-shaped design that eliminates any unsupported areas between the rollers or bars on traditional impact idlers or traditional impact beds where typical damage can occur in the idler junction points. The Impact Bed Cradles consist of a heavy duty frame with removable (Slide-in or Slide-out) sides and center sections for ease of installation and maintenance.
