Applications for our castors
Good quality castor wheels are relied upon to take heavy loads while providing smooth, effortless movements by users of all sizes and strengths. The more the castor can handle, the less required of the person manipulating the equipment. Our castors can be found on storage shelving, supermarket trolleys, scaffolds, event road cases, automotive workshops (under car creepers, shelving, heavy duty toolkits), office chairs, cabinets, and more. Many of our customers have significant loads they need to transport, so our heavy duty castor solutions are ideal. This could include transportation of heavy vehicles, or materials handling of substances at scale.
We provide all types of castor, including 360 swivel options to allow for complete movement in any direction, or spring-loaded options to manage frequent load and offload shocks. Proper load manipulation demands castors with materials that can withstand heavy loads, but have fixtures that remain stable and connected. Our castors are used in environments where the temperature fluctuates, there are floor liquids present and heavy impact risk. That’s why we choose only castors that are up for the job of rigorous daily usage.
Industries that use our castor wheels
Our castor wheels can be found in virtually every industry across New Zealand, whether that be food processing, chemical handling, supermarket chains, retail, factory management, large venues, aviation, building and construction, technology, retail - you name it, we’ve probably got customers in that industry!
Tips for buying castors online
When buying castor wheels online, it’s important to consider a few things:
- What is the load I need to move and can the combined rated weight of the castors comfortably accommodate this?
- Will I need to move the load forwards and backwards only, or will I need to be able to rotate the load easily, and have 360 degree motion available?
- What environment is the load going to be used in most typically? And therefore what’s the best castor material to use (e.g. rubber, nylon, iron, urethane etc)
- Make sure you’ve done an assessment of the load and application before ordering - need help? Our team is here to guide you through this. Otherwise, if you know the type of castor you need, order today!
- Is there a CAD available?
- Are there any design requirements for commercial branding purposes? E.g. red coloured castor wheels.
- Is the supplier able to provide customised builds and installation help if needed?
- Is the business able to provide local, expert support if you need?
Luckily, Wheelco can address all of these things and more. We know that buying online when there’s a high stakes load to manage needs to be done carefully. We’re designed to take orders directly off the website, but manage product enquiries via phone, email or if at scale in person too.
Customised castors solutions available
While we have a massive range of castors on our online shop, we are able to access almost any type of castor you could possibly want. Our team also partners with customers to build equipment with castors specifically for a certain job. This includes the construction of some load equipment itself, not just the castor installation.
If you need a castor wheel of a certain fixture size, wheel thickness, wheel width, colour, material or any other variable, then Wheelco is your go-to partner. Our relationships with world-renowned castor manufacturers gives us the ability to source and spec out the castor solution your business requires. Want to learn more?
