Shop Polyurethane Castors

TEP Technica stocks a wide range of polyurethane castors ranging from medium to heavy duty. We supply polyurethane castors with either plain bearings or ball bearings and we also supply polyurethane castors with either an aluminium centre/hub or with a cast iron centre/hub. Our polyurethane castors are manufactured in Western Europe to a very high standard with a nice looking finish. We stock polyurethane castors with load capacities ranging from 150kgs up to 1500kgs and can supply polyurethane castors up to 4000kgs in capacity. You can search our stock of polyurethane castors in our castor shop and find what you are looking for by castor type, castor height, castor wheel diameter, castor bracket type, and price and load capacity. 

PU castors are fabricated using a synthetic rubber providing the elasticity of rubber castors with the strength and durability of metal castors.  PU casters are made by combining chemicals which are then poured into a mould and cast. Polyurethane castors can be manufactured to range of hardness dependent on the intended application. Ranging from soft to very hard, polyurethane castor fabrication is controlled by the compound ingredients and through the production process.

Key benefits of our polyurethane castors

Polyurethane castors can be manufactured to range of hardness dependent on the intended application. Ranging from soft to very hard, polyurethane wheel fabrication is controlled by the compound ingredients and through the production process.  They key benefits of polyurethane castors are:

Noise Reduction

Polyurethane castors are utilized in industrial applications to reduce noise levels. Compared to steel or cast iron PU castors are considerably quieter. The polyurethane acts as a shock absorber on uneven terrain which can significantly reduce noise levels to help protect employees’ hearing and create an improved working environment. 

Dynamic Load Bearing Capability

In comparison to rubber castors polyurethane castors have a higher load bearing capacity and good compressive deformation behaviour with all the benefits of a rubber tread e.g noise reduction, shock absorption, and floor protection.  

Floor Protection

PU casters are generally non-marking and function efficiently on hard surfaces like concrete, ceramic tiles and even hardwood. The large surface area and shock absorption of a polyurethane castor reduces the direct stress to a floor. In manufacturing, laboratories and industrial industries where flooring can be expensive a polyurethane castor is an appropriate choice to minimise floor damage.

High grip and traction

Polyurethane castors are some of the most ergonomic on the market as they provide less resistance than other treads. Despite having a low starting and rolling resistance PU castors have a rough surface creating friction between the surface and the castor.  This allows for improved grip and traction compared to harder wheels. It also reduces the amount of load on the wheel to achieve the desired driving force.

Resistance to Corrosion

PU has a good resistance to a multitude of chemical media such as oils, greases, and cleaning agents that are present in commercial and industrial environments. Let our technical team help advise you on the right type of polyurethane castor for your application be it a humid or wet environments, laboratory or chemical plant.

Long Lasting - Lower Life Cycle Costs

By choosing the right polyurethane caster for the application you can help ensure the polyurethanes will not break down or corrode prolonging the castor’s life. PU has  good abrasion and cut resistance, and tensile strength, with outstanding wear and tear resistance making it a long lasting and a cost effective solution.

We pride ourselves on only supplying our customers with high quality polyurethane castors. Our range of polyurethane castors typically outperform competitor brands of polyurethane castors and offer our customers lower replacement costs, increased productivity and lower life cycle costs than cheaper polyurethane castors which require more frequent replacement. Our polyurethane castors come with cast iron or aluminium wheels with polyurethane tread directly bonded. The polyurethane castors in our medium to heavy duty range are impact, tear and wear resistance, non-marking and resistant to many common oils and greases. We hold a variety of different polyurethane castors in stock in the UK for next day delivery. If you place an online order for polyurethane castors before 4.30pm which are in stock then you will receive your polyurethane castors on the next working day. Our polyurethane castors are suitable for most heavy duty applications operating under high load and uneven surfaces. Our range includes: Polyurethane castors, polyurethane swivel castors, stem castors, heavy duty castors, fixed polyurethane castors and polyurethane braked castors.
