About Caster Wheels
Caster Wheels are wheels that are attached to a frame and can be used to move heavy objects. They are typically made from hard rubber, plastic, or metal and come in various sizes and styles depending on the application. Caster Wheels can be used for a variety of purposes including industrial applications, furniture moving, medical equipment transport, retail displays, and more.
Types of Caster Wheels
There are several types of Caster Wheels available including rigid casters, swivel casters, brake casters, and heavy duty casters. Rigid casters have fixed wheels that only allow movement in one direction while swivel casters have wheels that rotate 360 degrees allowing them to turn in any direction. Brake casters use brakes to keep the caster wheel stationary while heavy duty caster wheels provide extra strength and durability for heavier loads.
Materials Used for Caster Wheels
Caster Wheels are usually made from hard rubber or plastic with some models being constructed from metal as well. Depending on the application different materials may be needed such as stainless steel for food service carts or phenolic resin for medical equipment transport carts. The material chosen will depend on the environment it will be used in as well as the load capacity needed.
Industries That Use Caster Wheels
Caster Wheels can be found in many industries including healthcare facilities, foodservice establishments, warehouses, manufacturing plants, retail stores and more. Professionals such as nurses use caster wheels to easily move medical equipment around while warehouse workers rely on them to quickly move large items around their facility. Retailers also use caster wheels to create dynamic store displays that can easily be rearranged.
