Cast Iron & Metal Castor Wheels

When you develop problems with your castors it's not always necessary to change the

whole castor assembly. In many cases, our selection of metal castors will prove an easy and inexpensive fix when your trolley, truck or cage takes on a life of its own and heads off in the wrong direction. If your existing wheels are metal castor wheels and you need a like-for-like replacement, you are sure to find something suitable here.

We have heard from several customers who have come to us after being let down by cheap castors that haven't stood the test of time. With Bluetrolley, you can rest assured that you are dealing with a reputable company with a long track history in the business. As well as off the shelf spares like castor wheels, we manufacture our own range of stock moving and handling equipment.

Our trolleys, trucks and cages are renowned for build-quality and for giving years of trouble-free service. Everything we produce and sell has its origins in the UK. Increasing our profits at your expense by sourcing cheap mass-produced products from Asia is not something that aligns with our focus on supplying quality products backed by excellent customer service.

 

Metal Castor Wheels – Your Options

Iron castor wheels 

Iron has been one of the main choices in castor wheel manufacture for decades. Iron has a high load-bearing capacity and copes well with extremes of heat and cold. Resistant to any sort of damage, the main reason that iron castors eventually produce running problems is down to worn bearings. Rather than the complicated job of bearing replacement, by far the cheapest and easiest option is to go for a replacement wheel.

Cast iron castors are normally used for goods and material handling equipment designed for heavy-duty use. We offer replacement cast iron wheels in 5 different sizes with weight load capacities going from 450kg right up to 1500kg. Each replacement iron castor wheel is supplied with either a 20mm or 25mm ball bearing and wheel diameter choices between 100mm and 250mm. The product pages all feature a useful table that details all of the available options

Metal is fantastic for equipment used outside but you should bear in mind that if you use them inside, to avoid damaging floors you might need to go for cast iron castors fitted with polyurethane or rubber tyres to soften the impact.

Steel Castor Wheels

When used for typical industrial applications, steel is a material suitable for medium load-bearing as well as provide long-lasting performance. Steel is used for the centre of the castor wheel and because it is coated and resistant to corrosion it is suitable for outside use.

Take as an example the steel castor wheels featured here. They are fitted with a black solid rubber tyre and a steel centre. With a solid rubber tyre, they are kinder to your flooring and there is no danger of suffering a puncture

They come in sizes between 80mm and 200mm with a capability of supporting up to 205kg maximum load. You get a choice of wheel diameters and widths meaning that you are certain to be able to find something to fit your equipment. The product page has a table that will help you to choose the right specifications.

Aluminium Castor Wheels

Aluminium castors are a fantastic lightweight alternative if you are looking for metal castor wheels. Light and strong, you are looking at a load-bearing capacity of up to around 450kg depending on which model you choose. Once again, these use tyres to soften the impact on your floors and you have a choice of solid rubber and polypropylene.

We have a few variations of aluminium castor wheel in stock in a variety of diameters and widths; so have a good browse around to make sure your choice is the ideal replacement for your existing wheels.

Alternative Materials

If you feel that plastic or nylon castor wheels might make a better and more suitable replacement for your equipment, there is nothing wrong with switching to them. You need to carefully measure your existing wheels or lookout for a size stamped on them. Making sure that they are a good size match for your existing castor wheels means that you avoid creating a safety hazard.
