Rubber Castor Wheels

Castor wheels are something you rarely think about until you have issues with them. It will please you to know that our wide-ranging selection of British manufactured and high-quality rubber castor wheels and rubber swivel castor wheels make ideal replacements that will get you moving in the right direction.

So when your trolley moves sideways but you want it to go forwards, it's normally down to the bearings. Our wheels come complete with new bearings, making them a quick and inexpensive fix that will get you back up and running without needing to replace the complete castor assembly.

Delivered direct to your door, it takes just a couple of minutes to unscrew those old malfunctioning rubber castor wheels and install a brand new set. Particularly useful if your replacement rubber castors are for essential medical equipment or your ability to move stock around your warehouse has ground to a halt because of a faulty wheel.

Whether you need solid rubber tyre wheels, soft rubber castors or anything else, you will find what you are looking for here.

Rubber Castor Wheels – Considerations

With so many versions and different specifications for castor rubber wheels, being spoiled for choice may also mean that choosing the right product can get confusing. Of course, we are here to help and our experts are just a phone call away.

But first, let's see if we can save you some time by looking at the main points to consider.

Consistency

Our solid rubber tyre wheels come as the name suggests, fitted with solid inflexible rubber for a long life without risk of puncturing. But when you need something solid but slightly more yielding,  the elastic rubber tyre will give you a softer ride. We even stock solid rubber-tyred wheels in funky blue if you choose to add some interesting style touches.

Centres

For the centre of these castor wheels, you get four primary options:

  • Aluminium: A light and durable alloy that contains an oxide coating that consistently renews itself, helping to keep the metal relatively safe from corrosion. Suitable for damp conditions and outdoors.
  • Steel: Making a heavier, stronger wheel with a higher load-carrying capacity
  • Polypropylene: Choose a polypropylene wheel centre if you want something that cannot corrode in wet conditions and is highly resistant to denting or buckling. Polypropylene is a type of thermoplastic polymer resin. This range of wheels gives you a choice of colours including black, grey and red.
  • Cast Iron: Our cast iron wheel centres are built for long life and incredible strength. They give you a load-carrying capacity of anywhere up to 1500kg.

Wheel Diameters and Width

Carefully measuring your existing wheels will tell you the right diameter and width for your replacement. The individual product pages feature helpful tables that list the wheel sizes available for each product. Check your old wheels carefully because they often have these sizes stamped into them to make it easier to find the correct replacement.

Bore

The bore diameter is the internal size of the hole in the centre of the wheel. Getting this measurement right ensures that the new wheel will fit the existing axle assembly properly.

The Importance of choosing the correct castor wheel

First and foremost, you need to make sure that the rubber tyre wheels you buy are fit for the intended purpose. Adhering to safety protocols and accepted standards is not just a legal requirement, it's a moral one too.

There is nothing wrong with replacing castors made from a different material, like plastic or metal with rubber castors providing they fit properly. By carefully measuring the size of the existing castors, including the bore of the thread they will screw into, you can make sure that the replacements are a perfect fit. Fitting the wrong size wheels is often physically possible, but you might be unknowingly creating a hazard.

You should also understand and consider the total weight capacity that the wheels are expected to support. This is called the working load limit (WWL) or safe working load (SWL). Our selection of rubber-tyred wheels ranges from 60kg right up to 800kg working load limit.

 

Advantages of rubber wheel castors

Rubber is a shock-absorbent material that allows for smooth and quiet use. It`s durable too which means it is suitable for internal and external use. And with solid rubber-tyred wheels, you will never experience the inconvenience of a puncture.

When you need strength, ease of use and a material that runs easily across rough or uneven floors without jolting or making too much noise, rubber is a superb choice.
