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

Not sure when your application requires a more heavy duty caster solution?  It can be difficult to determine at what weight you need to switch from standard heavy duty casters to industrial steel casters.  At Caster Concepts, we are committed to helping each of 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 finding the appropriate caster is the only way you can ensure efficient handling of whatever it is you are moving.  Increased productivity, a safer work environment and optimal performance are all benefits of matching the right caster to your individual application.

Start With These Basic Questions                                                                                                                                         

To begin the process of choosing the right 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 to determine your load weight.  Our engineering team specializes in finding the exact casters needed for your unique challenge by working with you to custom-design or to choose from 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 simply contact us with any questions.
