AGH Polyurethane On Cast Iron Heavy Duty Braked Castors
Our AGH series of castors is a series of heavy duty castor that consist of a red polyurethane tread on a cast iron core all housed in a fabricated steel bracket. They're available in three different styles of castor that include swivel, fixed, and braked. In each of those styles, there are also four different wheel diameters that include 100mm, 125mm, 150mm, and 200mm.
The beauty of using polyurethane in castors is that it can support particularly heavy loads very well and it's also a rather hard-wearing material and tends to last longer than castors with rubber tyres on them. When you add a polyurethane tread onto a cast iron core, however, the result is a very durable, long-lasting, and hard-wearing castor that handles very well! This range of castors covers all bases when it comes to a good heavy-duty castor!
This particular style of castor is the heavy-duty braked castor. You'd really find braked castors in many applications as they're the perfect way to keep things stationery, You'd find many of them in applications such as machinery that you may need to occasionally move. You obviously wouldn't want a machine moving around your factory during use though so the brakes come in particularly handy! They've also been used on benches, warehouse trolleys, retail displays (Mainly due to their industrial look) but they've also been used in many bespoke applications which is honestly something we love. If you're using our heavy-duty braked castors for a unique and bespoke application, please let us know about it! We'd love to feature it in a blog post!
