Types of Castor Wheels

Castor Wheels can be Swivel, Fixed or Braked castors depending upon your requirements. Swivel allow the wheels to track in any direction, Fixed only allow the object to move in a linear way and braked which with a pedal, secure the object you are moving. 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 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 maneuverability required for the load capacity. These are light duty castors, medium duty castors and heavy duty castors. Light duty support weights of up to 75 kg, Medium duty support weights of between 76 kg and 140 kg and Heavy duty supports 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.

How do I clean castor wheels?

To maintain both the function and the long term use, it is important to keep these wheels clean. Depending on your type of wheel and where they are used, will depend upon the type of cleaning. For example a sterile environment such as a hospital will warrant different cleaning methods to those used in an industrial environment.

How do I measure castor wheels?

The measurement of a castor is really important and will be the difference between it working and not working. Measure the height and width of both the Top Plate and Bolt Hole Pattern, measuring from the center of one hole to the other. Measure the wheel size over the center when the wheel is lying flat.For the swivel to rotate 360 degrees, measure from the kingpin to the edge of the wheel. Use a straight face to make contact with your measuring devise. Where these meet is the swivel radius measurement. To enable the smooth running of the castor wheels especially when replacing one wheel. Simply measure from the top plate to the bottom of the wheel.
