Our new cleats are stronger with a rounded top edge

Starting today, we've upgraded the design of our cleated belts. The new cleats have thicker walls that are stronger and less likely to bend under the weight of product. They feature a rounded top edge and a base that's not flared but maintains the same weld strength as our previous cleats.

These cleats are available in the Conveyor Configurator immediately.

The new cleats are available in 1/2", 1", 2" and 3" heights (our existing 5mm square cleat is also still available). They will be welded in our factory to either MAA or MAE base belts depending on the type of conveyor. Industrial Series conveyors use MAA material, while Automation Series conveyors use MAE or MVE (MAE with a V-Guide added). Sanitary Series conveyors use the MVE base material.

The ordering codes for the new belts are shown in the table below:

Height MAA Base MAE Base MVE Base
3" CAK WAK WVK
2" CAI WAI WVI
1" CAG WAG WVG
1/2" CAE WAE WVE
5mm CAB WAB WVB

Old cleats may still be ordered on replacement belts by typing the part number into the Conveyor Configurator's "Part Search" option. At this time, the new cleats are not available on Corrugated Sidewall belts or belts for our AS40Z or 125Z Series conveyors.
