If you use trucks, trolleys and cages in an industrial warehousing environment, they do work hard for you. At some point, you could start to get issues with nylon wheels and plastic castor wheels. As they become worn out they start to bump and rattle and even veer off in unexpected directions.
An unruly truck with faulty castors can present a safety hazard so the issue must be taken care of at the earliest possible opportunity. Luckily, the problem is usually caused by the wheel or the wheel bearings; meaning that a simple wheel replacement puts things back on track without needing to replace the whole castor.

On this page, we are covering your choices for the plastic castor wheels and closely related variations. Of course, options are available elsewhere on our site for metal castor wheels and we have placed these within their own section.
So let's take a closer look at what is available here and highlight some important points that might influence your choice of castor wheel.
Nylon castor wheels
When you need a castor wheel that has fantastic load-bearing properties and can stand a lot of use without wearing out, nylon is a top choice. A strong and stiff engineered plastic, nylon is a lighter material that retains many of the characteristics that make metal castors so versatile.
Our standard version is a white nylon castor wheel that comes in 6 different sizes. With wheel diameters between 75mm for small nylon wheels and 200mm for the largest, plus tread widths between 25 and 50mm, these wheels can support between 170kg and 600kg load limit.
Consult with the table on the product page where all of the specifications are listed to help you select an exact replacement for your old castor wheel. Castor wheels that feature either ball bearings or roller bearings are available.
Castor wheels with nylon tyre and black glass-filled nylon centre
These take you up to the heavy-duty nylon wheels category designed to take much heavier loads of up to 1200kg. With nylon tyres and a nylon centre that has been reinforced with glass, you can expect them to cope easily with sustained industrial use and heavy load-carrying.
There are three options for wheel diameter and width. These nylon wheels run on ball bearings that are better at coping with heavy loads than roller bearings. Please be aware that the hub length is 60mm and the bore 12mm on all variations so you will need to check that this matches your existing wheels.
White polypropylene wheel
Polypropylene is a type of thermoplastic polymer resin. If your equipment is regularly exposed to damp conditions these polypropylene wheels will not corrode and will resist damage as a result of normal use. This range is designed for lighter use with a maximum safe load of between 70kg and 125kg. They come in 4 different sizes ranging between 75mm and 125mm in wheel diameter and between 25mm and 35mm in width.
Choosing the right replacement castor wheel is not straightforward but we have written a blog post to give pointers and more detailed information about how to choose a safe castor to help you get it right
