Dual wheel casters are beneficial for applications where height is an issue, as they offer the highest possible capacity at the lowest overall height. Their higher weight capacity per caster allows for increased productivity while enhancing stability. Dual wheels also distribute weight more evenly, reducing the load-per-square-inch and reducing pressure on the flooring or ground surface.
Constructed of our popular hot forged C-1045 steel swivel sections, these dual wheel casters feature legs welded to a unique skirt design for greater strength and longevity.
These casters come in various designs and materials, allowing them to meet specific application requirements. They are available in swivel and rigid configurations, providing versatility for different applications. Additionally, dual wheel casters are manufactured in various materials, including rubber, polyurethane, and metal, each offering different benefits such as shock absorption, floor protection, and durability.
One of the critical advantages of dual-wheel casters is their ability to handle heavier loads with more excellent stability compared to single-wheel alternatives. The dual-wheel configuration offers a larger surface area in contact with the ground, reducing the pressure on each wheel and minimizing the risk of damage to flooring surfaces. This feature is essential in industrial settings, where the impact of heavy equipment on floors can be a concern.
Whether in manufacturing facilities, warehouses, hospitals, or commercial spaces, wheel casters have many uses. These casters work on medical equipment, industrial machinery, utility carts, and countless other pieces of equipment that require both stability and mobility.
Dual wheel casters are an essential component for equipment and machinery that demands strength and maneuverability. Their ability to distribute weight, reduce floor damage, and enhance mobility makes them a valuable asset across numerous industries, ensuring that operations run smoothly and efficiently while maintaining the safety of both workers and equipment.
Excellent for tow lines, industrial platform trucks, rugged industrial functions and other severe abuse applications. Also common in applications that may use a ramp or inclined surface.
Aerol has a wide variety of caster options. Many of these not only improve function – but also provide safety and add longevity to the product. When considering safety options, the most common consideration would be caster swivel locks, floor locks, and aluminum or steel pedal foot brakes.
Other options include clean room certified casters that do not emit gasses, are non-marking, and sealed so grease will not leak out, In addition, non-magnetic and spark proof casters are ideal for companies that make black powder, explosives, or fireworks.
