Belted Lanes

From a neighbourhood grocer to a national chain, we have your belted solution

Pan-Oston has been manufacturing belted lane checkouts since the late 1970’s, responding and adapting to industry-wide change with innovation. We serve regional and national customers offering a broad selection of standard and proprietary designs. The best product for the task is driven by available store space, cashier operational mode, ergonomic criteria, and desired options.

The belted portion of the checkout is offered in 4-foot through 8-foot lengths, in 1-foot increments. Custom lengths can be produced to meet customers’ requirements. All lanes are assembled with an approved electrical package, photo-electric eye control and scanner kits. Additional features can be added to a belted lane to optimize operational efficiency.

Rear cabinets are designed to accommodate the style of operational mode. A variety of sizes, in length and width, are developed to complement the store’s space. Features are added to support the bagging function as well as the individual performing that function.

Available cashier modes include scan and cashier bag, scan and cashier pass with bagger assist, scan and cashier pass with customer bag. Different checkouts are available within these modes including single and multi-belt versions as well as height adjustable systems to address ergonomic issues.

Pan-Oston manufactures belted lane checkouts using a variety of materials. Fixtures can be finished in semi-gloss, textured and multi coloured powder paint or plastic laminates to complement individual store décor.


 

A wood and plastic laminate checkout, was a new model for Pan-Oston and we had to design it from scratch due to its construction materials.  The customer provided a sample lane and we had to match the specification and details exactly.  The rear deck is height adjustable which makes the scan and bag function, on the rear deck, more comfortable for the cashiers.

Was designed in the early 1980’s for a Regional Retailer and it was used sparingly.  For a number years it had very little interest until a major US Retailer implemented the lane design throughout its’ chain and interest from other Retailers has risen.  The checkout combines the centuries old carousel concept coupled with the addition of bag racks to offer the cashier several bagging vessels with a spin of the carousel.

Was developed after a customer explained that more of their re-merchandising projects left them needing a right hand lanes.  The need for right hand lanes added cost to the project and several left hand lanes in inventory.  This lane converts easily to a right hand by removing and resetting a few panels which offered a greatly reduced re-merchandising cost and lower inventory values in their fixed assets.

Was designed to meet the design criteria of a customer who wanted a new look for a new city store banner.  We considered manufacturing options such laminates, surface skins before we settled on stainless structure to meet the customer request.  Since it was being installed in an urban location it had to be small and still offer all of the operational features by the cashier.
