Ladder-Track™ belting is a positively sprocket driven belt which is used in straight running applications. Its light weight and basic configuration makes it a very economic and cost effective style of belting for many different environments.

Where transportation of smaller products is required these belts can be supplied with a mesh overlay.

Advantages:

  • Flat uniform surface for gentle product handling
  • High tensile rods which resist permanent distortion and reduce down-time
  • Positive drive to ensure there are no tracking issues
  • Smooth edges for easy movement around radial bends
  • U-bar filler rods available for increased product support
  • Easy belt assembly and disassembly due to its simple open construction.
