A hood catch ensures a hood or any other type of hatch remains closed and doesn't open accidentally. These hood catches are used for a variety of applications, including the hoods of agricultural vehicles, caravan skylights, as well as protective covers for whipping cream machines in bakeries. This hook system features vibration protection to prevent vibrations. The hood catches are made of rubber, stainless steel or blue plastic. The latter variety was specially designed for the food industry, where this blue colour is a requirement. The recreational sector often makes use of white plastic catches, so the products don't stand out too much in caravans, for example. The stainless-steel parts are primarily used in more heavy-duty situations in the agricultural sector. On top of that, the catch needs to be able to handle various weather conditions and dirt. The assortment features catches with different types of hooks at their ends. This way, the catches can be used for a variety of applications.
Transport rollers, also known as conveyor belt rollers, are used in a variety of sectors to transport and sort goods. Transport rollers are generally made of steel and are sometimes equipped with a rubber coat. This rubber coat offers anti-slip properties, keeping the products from moving too fast or erratically. Like wheels, transport rollers are made of various components, including a bearing and mounting points on their sides. Depending on the application, these components vary for each transport roller. One of the possible applications of transport rollers is their use below a rubber conveyor belt for the easy transport of luggage at airports. Transport rollers can even be found under the conveyor belts of cash registers in supermarkets. The postal industry also makes use of transport rollers for sorting mail, though often without a rubber belt.
