Conveyor and pick module support structures
Wynright provides custom conveyor support structures to carry sorter and transportation conveyors over docks, machinery, aisles and other obstacles. Structures are designed for local seismic conditions and compliance with building code requirements. Columns are placed to avoid building obstructions, maintain traffic aisles and minimize intrusion into the usable space below the structure. We can also add catwalks for maintenance access.
Conveyor crossovers provide access to floor areas obstructed by conveyors. They can be provided with IBC-compliant staircases for egress routes, or steeper OSHA-compliant stairs, ship’s ladders or rung ladders for maintenance-only access. Crossovers are custom designed to cross single or multiple conveyor lines as needed, and are high enough to clear conveyors and product. Intermediate stairs or ladders can provide user access to aisles between multiple conveyor lines, if needed. Choose from bar grating or diamond plate decking, or composite wood flooring over corrugated steel deck.
Catwalks are relatively narrow elevated walkways used to access elevated conveyor lines for clearing product jams or maintaining conveyors. They can also be used for access to elevated industrial machinery or other devices not accessible from the building floor. Catwalks can be designed and built as standalone structures adjacent to conveyor or machinery, or integrated into new or existing support structures.
Platforms free up space by supporting processing equipment, air conditioning units and generators. Wynright’s are designed to meet local codes and available with stamped drawing and calculations, if needed. Our bolt-together design ships knocked down for ease of installation and relocatability at a later time.
