Spring Loaded Casters

If you have the need to protect valuable cargo, reduce cargo vibrations or protect your floors better, a spring loaded caster might be a great option for you. Spring loaded casters are intended to protect delicate cargo by reducing shock exposure and decrease vibrations affecting the cargo. Shock absorbing casters help decrease noise levels while rolling and decrease the wear and tear on the floors. Since shock absorbing casters are designed with the weight load being the focus, spring loaded casters are usually found on carts in shock sensitive applications, on aircraft jacks, monitoring equipment or various other styles of material handling equipment where shock absorption is a top priority. Designed for a wide range of different load capacities, spring loaded casters do a wonderful job at keeping an evenly displaced weight load across all four casters at all times on uneven surfaces. This weight distribution can decrease the weight capacity required for each caster individually to meet the total load cap required since again, the total weight load will be evenly distributed across all four casters at all times. Spring loaded casters come in both swivel and rigid models and are fully customizable with a full range of brake options and wheel materials. Common categories or spring loaded caster series are listed below:

  • Spring loaded gate casters
  • Spring loaded ladder casters
  • Medium duty spring loaded kingpin casters
  • Medium heavy duty spring loaded kingpin casters
  • Extra heavy duty spring laded kingpin casters

A shock absorbing caster could be the exact solution you have been seeking for your challenging material handling application.
