Addition to castor range features moulded wheels

The Elesa range of castors has been extended with the introduction of the RE.F8 technopolymer monolithic range, which covers heights from 100mm to 194mm.

The products feature unitary moulded wheels, which chosen for their suitability to general purpose industrial applications such as trolleys and equipment material transfer up to 750kg per wheel. The castors work best on smooth surfaces with good wear resistance such as tiled floors or similar finishes.

The series offers low rolling resistance with easy turning courtesy of the dual Elesa standard ball race cage. The manufacturer tells us that usability is further enhanced by the option of a total brake mechanism on the turning version which locks both the wheel and the chassis bracket from turning when required.

Elesa claims that the castor is excellent for light duty, low cost, low maintenance applications where its fully moulded wheel with integral plain bearing on a spacer tube provide simplicity within a rugged zinc plated or stainless steel chassis.
