Go in for Versatile Heavy Duty Castors

Regardless of how exemplary an invention is, it will be futile when not used for the application it has been designed for. The same fact holds true for castors. If the castors, intended for home-based applications will not serve the purpose of industrial applications and the same is true otherwise as well. However, there are certain factors that should not go unnoticed while sizing up the castors:

 Weight of Load

It is rather obvious to assume that larger wheels can carry heavier loads in a better way than smaller ones. However, it is worth noting that some small-sized castors can also be used for heavy duty applications. Therefore, it is important that you do not make a decision simply on the basis of size and make thorough perusal of other decisive factors as well, like the material which has gone into the construction of castors.

Floor Conditions

Since castors are made to roll down the surface, the floor condition of the application area must be kept into consideration. Make it a point to choose wheels constructed of polyurethane, especially if the castors are meant to be used in a room outfitted with a tiled or carpeted floor. Speaking of unmaintained workplaces, you may go in for heavy-duty castors, designed to roll over cracks and potholes.

Weather Conditions

Weather conditions bear hugely on the efficiency and reliability of the castors. Moreover, Excess heat or cold may leave castors or trolley wheels loaded with rust. As a result, it is important to ensure that the castors can withstand extreme temperatures, without lagging behind in performance.
