Premium heavy-duty castors have robust frames and are usually fixed to the leg of the portable object with a sturdy steel plate. They are normally attached to devices that need to be moved manually or by mechanical power. This helps reduce manual labour and helps move around heavy duty equipment from one place to another with ease.
Just like the standard casters, heavy duty castors are also made in the swivel variety or the rigid sort. While swivel castors enable equipment to be pushed in any direction, rigid castors are restricted to only moving backwards and forwards. A lot of things need to be considered when buying castors. For instance, what equipment will they be used for, what sort of environment will they be used in, in terms of temperature and type of floor and how much mobility to they require.
We also offer directional locking attachments in our premium heavy-duty range. These are used when trolleys etc must be able to move long distances in a straight line. They can be disengaged to use the castor as a 360-degree swivel.
