Rubber castor keeps the noise down

Castor specialist Elesa has designed its RE.E3 product with a vulcanised rubber tyre that ensures a soft ride over most industrial flooring types.

This makes the product useful for light loads up to 250 kg per wheel such as manually manoeuvred trolleys, barrows or equipment in storage, service or production or waste handling environments.

The castor features a tough zinc plated steel bracket in either static or rotating configuration. The latter also being available with total lock braking – rotation of bracket and wheel simultaneously locked – by means of a quick release foot pedal. Wheel sizes of 80mm to 200mm dia are matched with unit heights of 107mm to 240mm.

Design wise the unit features double ball races for ease of turning and manoeuvring matched with a precision plain bearing running in the steel wheel centre. Compact configuration has optimised dimensions to ensure minimal space utilisation for greater stability and reduced protrusion from the basic equipment footprint.
