CasterShoX® Casters and wheels are a simple solution to REDUCING THE NOISE in a manufacturing operation, a problem most every operation faces. CasterShoX® utilizes patented technology that combines the very best attributes of spring technology and polymer dampening technology that is unsurpassed in dampening the noise of a manufacturing environment.
And because CasterShoX® wheels are available in standard sizes and fit in the same available space as the previous caster. Retrofitting carts are easy. Simply change out the previous caster and bolt on the new CasterShox® version. It’s available in two standard sizes, 6×2 and 8×2, and fits into a 51 Series caster rig.
CasterShoX® casters have the ability to reduce workplace noise to levels that are safer for all employees. In addition, CasterShoX® works great for transporting fragile components or products where repeated shocks may damage the components. CasterShoX® also provides an added value for ergonomic situations.
Increases allowable exposure for workers
Hearing Loss is the 2nd most common illness suffered in the workplace, the US Department of Labor has regulations about noise exposure through OSHA. OSHA’s regulations state that 90 decibels dBa is the highest noise level an employee can be exposed to for 8 hours (a standard workday). Every increase of 5 dBa, reduces allowable exposure time in half.
To meet these needs, CasterShoX® was designed especially to reduce noise and vibration on carts. The patented CasterShoX® absorption system located in the center of a CasterShoX® wheel absorbs shock minimizing and even eliminating vibration that causes noise on carts. CasterShoX® functions like shock absorbers on a vehicle, minimizing impact on the cart and its contents.
