Castors & Wheels

 (9 product groups)

How does a castor wheel work?

Castor wheels function by letting an object or vehicle to move in any direction by revolving around a primary pivot point. A bracket, which may be fixed or swivel, is used to support the wheel. Greater manoeuvrability and ease of direction change are made possible by the wheel's capacity to rotate 360 degrees thanks to the swivel bracket.

The actual wheel often comprises an inner core made of metal or another sturdy material to offer support and stability, and an outer tread made of rubber, plastic, or another substance to provide traction. A castors key purpose is to facilitate the easy movement of the item it's affixed to.

The castor wheels rotate around the swivel point when an object is moved, enabling it to travel in any direction.
