Each of our wheels has unique physical properties, these features and benefits are available on each product page. For example: blue rubber wheels are best suited for smooth clean floors for whisper quiet performance. While our urethane wheels will operate on dirty uneven floors.

the larger the wheel diameter, the easier it will roll;

Try to select the largest practical wheel diameter the application will permit. Using this tip, helps insures that you will maximize efficiency and productivity and reduce work related injuries. Numerous factors need to be considered.
 


The Cost Choice

 

Initial cost is an important factor in a purchase decision; however the fact is that choosing the least expensive castors that meet your requirements can save money up front; but may actually cost you more in the long term; including the cost for maintenance, down time, and replacement. Selecting stronger castors with a higher weight capacity, larger wheels, and better bearings insures maximum productivity and longer caster life.

 

The Load Capacity

 

The first questions usually asked focuses to what the total weight to be moved is (includes the weight of the trolley or equipment & the load it will be carrying) and on how many castors. The simple formula is; divide the total load weight by the number of castors or wheels you will use; that will tell you the load capacity you will need for each castor or wheel (presuming you are using 4 castors). In any other situation, please contact us to discuss details.

 

The Type of Floor

 

In order to determine the proper wheel for your application, you need to consider the type and condition of the floors they will be rolling on. Wheels with soft non-marking rubber wheel will provide the best floor protection on hardwood floors, such as in your home or in a school gymnasium. Wheels with Polyurethane treads provide floor protection when soft rubber wheels lack the needed capacity. There are also countless applications where only a hard plastic or metal wheel will do the job. Each of our wheels have numerous applications for which they are best suited. Please consult us on your application for the correct product.

 


The Operating Conditions

Other thing to consider with application is temperature rating, chemical presence and or moisture. All these factor will contribute to the selection requirement.
