KEY BENEFITS OF NYLON CASTORS
Nylon castors provide a reliable and efficient solution for smooth mobility while offering durability, cost-effectiveness, and versatility in different environments.
White nylon caster wheels are made with a solid nylon material and are the most common nylon wheel. Black nylon caster wheels are reinforced with glass fibre to increase capacity and reduce friction when rolling. Nylon castors offer several benefits, including:
High Load Capacity:
Nylon is a robust material that can withstand heavy loads and frequent use without losing its structural integrity. This makes nylon castors highly durable and long-lasting. Our nylon castor load capacities range from 10kgs right up to 20 tonnes.
Nylon castors are known for their excellent wear resistance. They can handle abrasive surfaces, rough terrains, and high-impact environments without easily wearing out.
Low Noise and Vibration:
Nylon castors exhibit a natural dampening effect, reducing noise and vibration during movement. This feature is particularly beneficial in settings where noise reduction is important, such as hospitals, offices, or residential areas..
Nylon is resistant to rust and corrosion, making nylon castors suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications. They can withstand exposure to moisture, chemicals, and other environmental factors without degrading or rusting. The hygienic nature of nylon makes it the ideal material for food processing plants and cold stores and can used environments exposed to chemicals, cleaning solutions, grease, oil, salt, blood and steam.
Nylon castors are generally more affordable compared to other materials like metal or rubber. They offer a cost-effective solution without compromising on quality or performance.
Nylon castors are non-marking, meaning they do not leave unsightly marks or scuffs on the floors. This is particularly important for surfaces that require protection, such as hardwood floors or delicate tiles.
Nylon castors are available in a wide range of sizes, designs, and load capacities.
Nylon is a lightweight material, which means that nylon castors do not add significant weight to the objects they are attached to. This makes them easy to maneuver and minimizes the overall weight of the equipment or furniture.
Nylon has a high melting point so it can operate at +80°C to +90°C without tread deformation. It can also operate at low temperatures of -30°C and -40°C. Nylon is tasteless, odourless and hygienic making it ideal for food processing plants and cold stores.
