At What Weight Capacity Do You Need Industrial Heavy Duty Casters? - Caster Concepts

Not sure when your application requires a more heavy duty caster solution?  It can be challenging to determine what weight you need to switch from standard heavy duty casters to industrial steel casters.  At Caster Concepts, we are committed to helping our customers find the right product for their unique needs no matter the work you do!

Why is choosing the right caster so important?  Because it’s the only way you can ensure efficient handling of whatever it is you are moving.  Increased productivity, a safer work environment, and optimal performance benefit from matching the right caster to your application.

Start With These Basic Questions                                                                                                                  

To begin the process of choosing suitable casters, start by asking yourself a few simple questions.

  • What is your maximum load weight?
  • Is your application a manual or power-driven application?
  • What are your floor conditions?
  • Do you work in extreme climates?
  • Will you be handling varying load capacities?
  • Does your application require custom casters?

Determining Load Weight                                                                                                                                                  

One of the most basic first steps you need to take when determining whether industrial steel or other casters are necessary is determining your load weight.  Our engineering team specializes in finding the exact casters necessary for your unique challenge, either with a custom design or using one of thousands of existing models. We provide a free online caster configurator tool to help you define which caster is right for your application, or you can contact us with any questions.
