Jacking castors can be used to vary the height of a platform or piece of equipment between 75 and 200 mm depending on the models shown below. The jacking castor can also be used to raise a platform off its feet so that it can be moved easily around your work space. Prices and Specifications available below.
Low level castors are a special type of castor offering the weight loading of a normal larger diameter castor but in a smaller wheel. This is achieved using different materials and the use of twin wheels in the same bracket. Primarily used where the height of the trolley or product on top cannot be too high or where added stability is required.
Nylon wheels are one of the most popular selling wheels due to their strength and economical costs. Stronger than polypropylene, they are chemical and liquid resistant and offer a weight loading up to 12,000 kg. A comprehensive brochure is available at the base of this page, and nylon wheels are stocked in large quantities.
Industrial pallet rollers with and without bearings covering the 70 to 85 mm Diameter and 500 to 950 kg capacity. Various materials such as Nylon and Polyurethane are available and these are often used for the maintenance of pallet trucks. If your pallet truck clatters change the rollers to polyurethane!

Wheel Diameter from 200 mm up to 400 mm Plain, roller and ball bearing options. Load ranges from 75 kg up to 200 kg per wheel.
A range of soft elastic rubber wheels with grey or black rubber tyres. Available in a selection of sizes, load capacities and 55 shore hardness. With capacities up to 500 kg, these wheels can be used in a wide range of applications and all the wheels shown can be mounted in a wide range of brackets and supplied as a complete castor.
Stainless steel castors are generally used on trolleys, machinery and equipment used in food processing, catering and medical sectors or indeed whenever there is a requirement for a high level of hygiene to be maintained. Because the casters are made of stainless steel this makes them ideal for use when stringent wash-down procedures are employed.
Truck locks are an easy way to retrofit brakes to an existing trolley or mobile platform, or as an alternative to braked castors. The truck locks have a foot operated pad that lowers a pad normally with a rubber surface down to the floor, raising the wheels slightly above the ground and providing a friction brake.
Black-painted cast-iron 90° v-groove wheels for use on inverted angle-iron tracks or flange wheels with 3° tread ascent. With wheel diameter range of 75 to 200mm and load capacity range of 200 to 1500kg. Specialist wheels designed to run on tracks or guides with the V-grooved wheels ideal as sophisticated pulleys for a wide range of applications. These wheels can also be manufactured to order.
