Conveyor impact curtains are one of the smaller components in conveyor system, yet they play a significant role when it comes to conveyor maintenance. Though the curtains are not conveying materials, they take major impact and abrasion while protecting chutes, walls and sometimes responsible for centered material drop onto the next conveyor system. Hence it is of utmost importance to use a product that is developed to give the curtains expected life with the required resistance. If poorly selected, the conveyor system would require frequent maintenance shut downs than desired which would result in stopping the conveyors for a period of time which could have been utilized for production.
