Specialists in Conveyor and Transmission Belting, Hose, Instrumentation, Sealing and Valves

Rollers and Idlers


Frames and steel rollers are made to SANS 1313 specifications and are very well priced. We call on resellers to put us to the test with our steel roller pricing. We’ll beat any quoted price, subject to stock availability.

HDPE NY roller (Nylon shaft end cap) is the most economical roller available and is built for purpose in selected applications. The tube is wholly HDPE and if unable to rotate the roller poses no threat of damage to the conveyor belt.

Roller guards fitted on the outer wing roller bracket turn any roller into an anti-size roller.

Belt Fasteners

Super Screw

This versatile belt fastening system allows for a join far stronger than traditional mechanical fasteners, while doubling as a permanent belt repair system. The additional strength gained from having a mechanical join imbedded in rubber conveyor material makes this fastener the perfect substitute for splicing conveyor belts (hot or cold). Especially when environmental conditions aren’t ideal for splicing hot or cold or when time saving is essential. We stock an abrasive resistant option in class 630 and class 800.

PVC and PU Belting

Special fabrications available on PVC/PU/TPU conveyor belts for the Food, Agriculture, Horticulture industries.

All features High-Frequency welded for exceptional built quality.
