8' lateral roller guide
- Electric conductivity (ESD)
- Polyethylene lateral guide for flow rack's containers
- Compatible with other 1 1/16 in (28mm) pipe and joint systems
R40-GUIDE is a lateral 96 inches long black polyethylene ESD guide for containers. This part is used for keeping containers to move straight on the rails of a long flow rack.
If you have an uneven floor and adding adjustable feet are not enough to level your structures completely, the R40-GUIDE is the perfect solution to make sure your containers move in the direction you intended.
Make sure to remove 4 inches off the R40-GUIDE less than the roller track length when designing a flow rack. This will ensure to have enough space for the R40 mounts you would have decided to use. For example, if you decide to use the R40-RT96 at its full length (96 inches), your guide should be at a maximum length of 92 inches.
The Flexpipe roller track and its accessories will work on any 28mm pipe and joint systems. Some systems don't have the same conveyor size, so be sure to check the spec sheet to see if your old conveyor parts are compatible.
Learn more on different accessories configuration on the How to build modular flow racks page. Every part of the Flexpipe conveyor system is ESD, allowing you to build antistatic structures for the transportation of electronics and electrical components.

- Ensure you have the following parts:
- 1x R40-GUIDE
- 1x R40-RT96
- 1x Saw
- Cut the R40-GUIDE to the desired length. Don't forget to take off the measurement of the mounts - approximately 2 inches per mount.
- Insert the conveyor rail into the guide by sliding the R40-RT96 inside the R40-GUIDE.
