Heavy duty locking casters have a wide range of uses, especially in industrial environments. They are ideal for moving furniture and equipment, as well as for working on height adjustable work tables. These casters are crafted to roll smoothly over any surface.
What type of casters are best for concrete?
A number of heavy duty casters come with wheel brakes and swivel lock. This enables you to move your cart to the desired position without stopping. Many of them are available with a maximum weight capacity of 40,000 lbs. You can also find casters with a variety of wheel types. Choose one for your specific needs.
Some of the top-of-the-line brands you’ll find are Air Tire Pneumatic 2 Swivel Caster, Dashi Caster and Everbilt 4 in. All of these casters are constructed from welded steel and feature a smooth rolling motion.
For added safety, you can use a foot-operated swivel lock. This type of swivel lock is designed to improve ergonomics. It can be operated in one, three or eight positions. In general, it’s recommended that this swivel lock isn’t used in towed applications.
Another option is a vertical-mounted swivel lock. This is mounted under the yoke base of the caster and provides a more secure locking feature. The swivel caster raceway is held together by a 1/2″ diameter rivet.
Some of the other features of these casters are the durable construction, solid cover, double ball raceways and a smooth swivel action. Their overall durability allows them to be a great choice for warehouse and shop floor carts, as well as for dollies and platform trucks.
