Forbo profiles and sidewalls are a must for many applications. Particularly when bulk goods are conveyed, they ensure the machinery works reliably and efficiently. Their design is geared to the high hygiene requirements. As a result, Forbo products guarantee hygienic and low-loss production processes.
Profiles such as flights, longitudinal profiles and sidewalls ensure that Siegling Fullsan belts can be used for specific conveying and processing applications. Fitting them with flights and sidewalls, improves the grip of conveyor belts. Fullsan belts with these types of profiles are excellent at conveying bulk materials and small items at inclined or steep angles.
We offer a range of profiles in various shapes and sizes that are tailored to the conveying task concerned. Seven of our global fabrication centers have the appropriate equipment, including HF (High Frequency) welding tools for Positive Drive/Center Drive and relevant accessories for profile processing.
Compared to other technologies such as hot air, hot wedge or pulse welding, HF welding offers a much stronger weld. This weld is not only outstandingly robust, but also airtight and watertight. Therefore, HF welding is the best choice for applications that place stringent demands on service life and tight welds.
To meet specific requirements, extruded polyurethane flights can be applied to the top face of Fullsan belts. There are various versions geared to the application concerned. The following profiles are available: SF-T, SF-SB (Short Bent), SF-B (Bent), SF-SS (Small Scoop) and SF-S (Scoop). SF stands for small foot.
The flights were designed to take hygiene into account. The rounded edges facilitate cleaning and comply with various organizations’ hygiene recommendations. The flights come in heights of 25 mm (1 inch) to 150 mm (6 inches), in increments of 1 inch.
Longitudinal profiles are used either to guide a centered belt or to hold down the belt in concave curved areas on swan-neck or Z-shaped conveyors. Longitudinal urethane profiles (K-profiles) are available for Fullsan belts in various sizes (K6, K10, K13, K15 and K17).

Product Range Flights and Sidewalls
To stop bulk materials from falling over the sides during conveying, side wall profiles and flights are often used.
A special feature of this product is the synchronous welding of the sidewalls and flights, which results in almost no gaps between them. To ensure a stable connection, the sidewalls on the underside are synchronized with the teeth (in the case of PD and CD).
They come in the following versions, depending on the height of the belt:
