INDUSTRIAL PALLET ROLLERS
TEP Technica Ltd stock thousands of pallet rollers in many different sizes. Pallet rollers are typically used as front load wheels on the forks of pallet trucks.
Hand pallet trucks, stacker trucks and powered pallet trucks including ride on trucks will use a combination of two or four pallet rollers on the front two forks. Pallet rollers are often travelling over uneven surfaces and must be of high quality to sustain the regular impact damage common in these applications.
KEY PROPERTIES OF OUR PALLET ROLLERS
Our pallet rollers are either Vulkollan®, polyurethane or nylon directly bonded to steel or nylon centres with ball bearings, bushes and shields to suit the application requirements.
Our range of pallet rollers are manufactured to a very high standard and can handle load capacities up to 1000kgs each. Pallet rollers are a versatile load wheel and we use these rollers for a multitude of applications including supporting drum units, overhead conveyor systems and specific engineering requirements or prototypes.

WHICH PALLET ROLLER DO I NEED?
Choosing the right pallet roller is a critical decision that directly impacts operational efficiency and safety.
From warehouse logistics to manufacturing processes, understanding the diverse range of pallet roller options and their compatibility with different applications is essential for optimizing material handling systems.
There are a number of factors you should consider during the selection process:
Pallet rollers with a large diameter rotate slower than smaller wheels so the compression cycle is reduced lengthening the life span on the wheel. Wider rollers will offer greater load capacity than a narrower wheel. However both the maximum diameter and width of a roller will be restricted to the size of the mounting bracket.
Make sure to select a pallet roller the appropriate load capacity for your application will help extend the life of your wheels and prevent compression damage. The load rating of a wheel must never be exceeded.
If the environment where the forklift or pallet truck is sensitive to noise you will need to consider whether a softer tread is more suitable. Pallet rollers with a hard tread (e.g. Nylon Pallet Rollers) on a hard floor will create more noise than a softer tread like our PevodynSOFT® pallet rollers, which are designed to minimise noise and vibration..
Different treads are suitable for different environments. If the environment is humid or the pallet rollers will come into contact with aggressive chemicals rollers with metal centres should be avoided. A pallet roller from designed for high chemical resistance and sensitive floor protection should be selected for applications in environments such as these.
Continuous use can generate heat where the wheel rotates and compresses and expands whilst rolling. The constant expansion and contraction when the pallet roller comes into contact with the floor can build heat which will result in cracks in the roller compound and bond with the wheel hub. Compounds with higher shore hardness are suited to continuous use as there is less expansion and contraction reducing heat levels. Select a tread suitable for high speed and high load applications, such as Vulkollan®.
