Often much maligned when a trolley won’t track in a straight line or roll along smoothly, there is a lot more to wheels and castors than meets the eye.
The original choice of wheels and castors for a particular trolley or application can mean the difference between the trolley being a great performer or a dud.
There are many considerations when choosing wheels and castors.
Is it the right tyre material and wheel shape? What is the most suitable wheel diameter?
Should I have them all swivelling or a combination of swivel and rigid?
Also, the final configuration when they are assembled to the trolley base will all have an impact on performance and lifespan.
Choose a castor or wheel that is too big and the trolley or load will be unstable.
Select a wheel with a very hard tyre and noise might become an issue – too soft and you won’t be able to move it easily under load.
Some wheels will mark floors, some will wear rapidly on abrasive surfaces.
