WHAT ARE CASTOR WHEELS?
A castor (or caster) is an undriven wheel designed to enable an object to move and is attached to the bottom of an object via a stem or mounting plate.
Castors are mainly categorised in two types: Swivel and fixed. Swivel castors are ideally suited to the movement of heavy loads in material handing applications, theatre and stage settings, hospital beds, carts, dollies and trollies. These castor can swivel 360 degrees allowing flexible manoeuvrability.
Swivel castors or casters are generally fitted to the rear of the load and fixed castors to the front.
Fixed castors are designed to only move forward and backward, and are generally used when equipment doesn’t have to move as often or as far.
