When it comes to your warehouse’s workflow, productivity, and output goals, gravity conveyor systems can be just as important as gravity itself. These conveyors have proven to be instrumental in a variety of warehouse and distribution centers, including receiving, processing, order fulfillment, staging, production assembly, and loading docks.
Non-powered gravity sections are positioned flat for push-assisted applications or minimally sloped to flow with gravity, offering fluid and seamless movement without having to rely on powered systems. They rely on the weight of the product and force of gravity to keep pallets moving to their destinations.
Constructed of galvanized or ungalvanized steel in different gauges depending on capacity and application, a gravity conveyor can be configured for existing pick or process lines or used as stand-alone and temporary units. Conveyor sections are available in a variety of lengths, widths, and rail heights to meet your specifications. Our heavy-duty rollers are constructed to support a variety of load requirements including uneven or awkward containers. We use permanently lubricated ball bearings to maximize the life and minimize jams.

Gravity Game Changer: Gravity Conveyor Innovations for Smoother Operations and Use
Traditional gravity conveyor rails often have sharp edges that could catch the order selector’s hands, clothing, or cartons. As a result, pickers used caution to avoid these edges. Storage Solutions, Inc. has a roll-over frame rail with a smooth, rounded surface for maximum comfort, safety, and accessibility. Not only have we removed the sharp edges, but we also protected the rollers from impact and debris, with little to no added cost to the system.
