The conveyor solution for water parks & white water facilities
New construction or retrofit, tube, raft or ride-on conveyor belt: Sunkid supplies the optimal conveyor solution for any need
As a specialist for transport solutions in the outdoor area, to date, Sunkid is able to cite more than 3,500 installations of its outdoor conveyor belt around the world. With the well-known chain technology, and two types of conveyor belts with endless belt technologies, Sunkid has the optimal transport solution for water parks among its products as well.
Conveyor belt for tubes:
This conveyor belt is used where tubes need to be returned from the landing pool to the start of the slide tower.
For particularly steep gradients of up to approx. 50%, Sunkid has a unique solution in its innovative Blue-Eye surface. The Blue-Eye conveyor belt with its specially shaped, soft lamellas of a special rubber mix, ensure perfect carrying properties for the tubes right from the pool; while the water remains in the pool. Of course, Sunkid also uses the chain technology that is already in use on more than 33 km, in more than 800 facilities, around the world; where it is necessary.
Example: Conveyor belt with Blue-Eye conveyor belt in the water park HotGo (CHN)…
Conveyor belt for persons with or without tubes or sliding mats:
In this form of transport, the users are standing on the person conveyor belt and holding the sliding mat in their hand. The ruff-top belt used for this type of conveyor belt has a rough surface for a secure stance even with wet, naked feet. Due to the know-how from more than 3,000 conveyor belt installations for person transport, Sunkid is deemed a pioneer in the safety technology and has laid the foundations for the relevant standards such as EN 15700. This standard is necessary to meet the demands in water parks and leisure-time facilitates.
Conveyor belt for persons and rafts:
This conveyor belt makes it possible to "collect" people in kayaks, rafts or similar right in the water, and to return to them to the start. This system is mostly used in artificial white water facilities; but also in water park attractions such as Lazy Rivers or Family Slides. Based on the belt model, a documented tear-resilience of up to 800 N/mm will be achieved in order to meet even the highest safety demands. Once again, Sunkid profits off its pioneering position in safety facilities for person transport, documentation and evidence, as well as co-ordination with authorities around the world.
Vertical conveyor belt for return of tubes:
In order to overcome large gradients of up to 90°, Sunkid offers the space-saving solution of a vertical conveyor belt. This chain conveyor belt with carriers is supplied by a belt conveyor in the lower area, so that the tubes can be transported precisely, cycled by the carriers. As for all conveyor belts in water parks, demand-controlled transport takes place here as well. If the tube is not removed at the slide tower, transport is interrupted and will only be started again when the space in the removal area is sufficient.
