Nylon & Plastic Castor Wheels

Trucks, trolleys, and cages in an industrial warehousing environment work hard. At some point, you could start to get issues with nylon and plastic castor wheels. As they become worn, they start to bump and rattle – or perhaps even veer off in unexpected directions.

An unruly truck with faulty castors can present a safety hazard. The problem is usually caused by the wheel or its bearings – meaning that a simple replacement puts things back on track without needing to replace the whole assembly.

In our comprehensive selection of nylon, plastic and polypropylene castor wheels you’ll find a cost-effective way of solving this issue. With a wide range of sizes and specifications, chances are that we have like-for-like products in stock and are available for rapid despatch.

What are the types of nylon and plastic castor wheels?

On this page you’ll find plastic castors and closely related variations. So let's take a closer look at what is available and highlight some important points that might influence your choice.

  • Nylon castor wheels
A strong and stiff engineered plastic, nylon is a lighter material that retains many of the characteristics that make metal options so versatile.
Our standard version is a white nylon wheel that comes in six different sizes. With diameters between 75mm for small options and 200mm for the largest, plus tread widths between 25 and 50mm, these can support load limits between 170kg and 600kg.
Consult with the table on the product page where all of the specifications are listed to select an exact replacement for your old wheels. We also have options that feature either ball bearings or roller bearings.
  • Castor wheels with a 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 this option, you can expect them to cope easily with sustained industrial use and heavy load-carrying.
There are three options for diameter and width. These 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 requirements.
  • White polypropylene wheel

Polypropylene is a type of thermoplastic polymer resin. If your equipment is regularly exposed to damp conditions, these polypropylene wheels are useful as they 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 four different sizes ranging between 75mm and 125mm in diameter and between 25mm and 35mm in width.
