TYPES OF STAGE WHEELS
Mounted plate castors offering a high degree of strength and stability due to load weight distribution. Plate castors are often used on stage dollies for moving props or scenery. Our range of castors includes at triple swivel caster which has a heavy duty top plate fixing swivel head, mounted on top of the triangular base plate.
One of our best sellers because of the exceptional quality, at a price worth paying. This tri-stage swivel castor assembly (turtle) is manufactured in Germany using high quality materials for a long-life span and low starting and rolling resistance. Ideally suited for transporting heavy loads in a tight space for example on scenery construction or in theatre productions. The polyurethane tread offers high dynamic load capacity, high elasticity with strong mechanical wear resistance and compression set. The tread is non-marking and resistant to many chemicals and oils with a low level of water absorption. Replacement castors available from stock.
The Levelling castor wheel is used for objects that need to be stationary when in use, but also require occasional movement – for example a background scene during a performance, or a stage set. The leveling pad is raised when the object needs to be moved and lowered once the object has reached the desired position.
Where surfaces are uneven and challenging rubber or pneumatic castors are suited to this type of environment. Rubber castors also provide a greater deal of cushioning and noise reduction which is particularly important at a live stage performance.
We also offer bespoke wheels and castors for special projects whether for large quantities or a one off piece. Our stage swivel casters with non-marking treads provide easy and controlled maneuverability of heavy stage equipment even in confined spaces. Our stage swivels are engineered to provide perfect tracking and rollability and low noise running. Stage swivel castors are used for example on mobile stage scenery and mobile spectator stands.
