Types of Castor Wheels

Castor Wheels can be in Swivel, Fixed or Braked configurations depending upon your requirements.

Swivel - Allow the wheels to track in any direction

Fixed - Allow the object to move in a linear direction

Braked – A small integral pedal secures the wheel in place. Understanding the weight you want your castors to support is vital to your choice of castor. Choosing the correct castor type either Top plate, bolt hole or threaded stem depends on how you want to fix your castor to your application and how much weight each castor is expected to carry.

There are 3 different castor wheel ratings depending upon the strength, durability and manoeuvrability required for the load capacity. These are Light duty, supporting weights of up to 75 kg, Medium duty supporting weights of between 76 kg and 140 kg and heavy-duty supporting weights of over 141 kg.

What are Castor Wheels made of?

Castors are available in different sizes and support different load capacities. The wheels are made from different materials such as steel, polypropylene and rubber and can be non-marking.
