We are having an end of line stock sale!
Huge savings on all items included in the end of line sale. A mixture of both plastic and stainless-steel machine levelling feet.
In order to purchase the correct Castor there are some critical dimensions we require to ensure we supply the correct wheel.
The information above will give our technical sales people the basis to take your enquiry forward if you wish to continue the selection process unaided please read below.
Health & Safety:
The correct castor must be selected for the require application, cutting corner or trying to save money with cheaper or lighting loading carrying products is extremely dangerous and could cause manual handling injuries. Safety must come first!
Castor Selection Criteria
Load Capacity are calculated in two methods depend on the anticipated type of load. First establish if the loads are Liquid or Solid then apply the following:
(All of our advertised load ratings are based on the assumption that the floor surface is level and compact with no obstructions)
Liquid Loads: If the load consist of liquids our calculation considers that the load can move and could be over just two castors at one time:
Weight of Application including Trolley
Load capacity of castor = ———————————————————-
Solid Loads: Working to the principle that the application might not be parallel with the ground if the ground surface is uneven then only three castors will be supporting the load.
Weight of Application including Trolley
Load capacity of castor = ———————————————————-
The basic principle to work to is that the Larger the wheel diameter the less resistance it requires to move and therefore a consideration at the design stage for any application using castors, if regular
movement is required.
Before Selecting a wheel it is important to determine if the wheel material is compatible with the chemical environmental conditions, the temperature and humidity, all of which effect the wheels operation.
Wheels are available in a large variety of materials all of which are suitable for different environments and working condition. Basic Principles applied: The Harder a Wheel Tread the Easier the wheel will move and the less resistance to start motion. The Strongest wheel are Steel Wheels which will carry the highest loads and with-standard the worst condition however they will damage floors and be noisy.
7.Blue Elastic Rubber Castor Wheels this is a non marking elastic rubber which improves the load rating of the wheel.
12.Pneumatic Tyred Castor Wheels a great solution if your application needs to work over rough terrain.
Normally part of the moulded wheel or a nylon bush may have been inserted so the wheel will run directly on a shaft or axle.
Needle Roller Bearings
A cage holds steel roller together (needles) this will be found in the bore of wheel measure as the final required bore. Needle roller bearings will reduce friction between the axle or shaft and the wheel.
Precision Steel Balls encapsulated in a steel cage will reduce the friction between the wheel and axle of shaft – best suited for very high loads
Castor Housings Types
Castors come in three main types:
Top Plate Swivel Castors:
Four Hole Fixing Points on a Mounting Plate this Style of Castor will Swivel 360 degrees.
Top Plate Swivel Braked Castors:
Four Hole Fixing Points on a Mounting Plate this Style of Castor will Swivel 360 degrees complete with a locking system to brake the Wheel and the Swivel Motion
Top Plate Fixed Castors:
Four Hole Fixing Points on a Mounting Plate this Style of Castor is Rigid and will only travel in one direction.
Top Plate Swivel Directional Lock Castors:
Four Hole Fixing Points on a Mounting Plate this Style of Castor will Swivel 360 degrees complete with a Directional locking system which enables the directional of travel to be locked into one position (this does not lock the wheel or swivel)
Top Plate Swivel Directional Lock Braked Castors:
Four Hole Fixing Points on a Mounting Plate this Style of Castor will Swivel 360 degrees complete with a Directional locking system which enables the directional of travel to be locked into one position complete with a locking system to brake the Wheel and the Swivel Action
Bolt Hole Castors:
Single Fixing Point Bolt Hole Castors will Swivel 360 degrees.
Bolt Hole Braked Castors:
Single Fixing Point Bolt Hole Braked Castors will Swivel 360 degrees and Brake the Wheel and Swivel Action.
The distance from the centre of the castor head fitting to the outside of the wheel is known as swivel radius and is very important to ensure your castor does not foul on your application when rotating 360 degrees.
Castors are designed to travel at 4kph , if your application is going faster then please talk to our technical sales team
Coldene Blockbusting Success
Since Coldene was established in 2005 we have been supplying our products for major Hollywood blockbuster movies, produced in studios around the UK and Europe. Recently our castors have been featured in Star wars, the new Fast & Furious Hobbs & Shaw and the The Curse James Bond 25. Unfortunately, our products rarely make a main screen appearance but behind the sense they keep the production rolling.
Coldene manufacturing output increases
Manufacturing in the UK has taken off better than any of our plans could of forecasted clients are very keen to engage with our new division, and we are now making bespoke wheels and castors for some major OEM companies around Europe as a result we are pushing our fledgling manufacturing department to the limit. Therefore we would like to introduce Gemma to our engineering team. Gemma will be focusing on production planning to improve the flow of work.

Here at Coldene we have recently introduced a new low-level castor range. Made for applications where overall height is restricted but quality is still needed.
Low Level castor selection from Coldene Castors
We have serval castor types which make up this range.
Starting with our corner furniture castor- A perfect solution to mobilise any furniture. Simply attached to any right angle edge.
Next our foot plate castors. This range is ideally for any application which requires infrequent movement, a load foot at the read offers a firm static base by raising the wheel off the ground. Suitable for applications where it doesn’t need to be moved regularly. For example a display stand with a removable plinth.
Footmaster castors are unique as they are a fully functional low level extra heavy duty castor combined with an anti-vibration load foot ideally for heavy equipment which mainly remains static but will require the ability to be moved.
The super low level castor has the ability to carry very high load capacities with very low overall height, benefiting from quiet running technology this product will suit many confined space applications.
Our last range is the monster castor range. This range is one of the most popular due to the excessive load capacities and low overall heights which are achieved. Perfect for display stands and other applications where there is a heavy load but also a confined space.

Do you work in a clothing shop and are you fed up of lifting your clothing rails and moving them around all day in your shop? We all know they are not the lightest things in the world now don’t we.
There is a very simple solution to solve your problem which, when installed will take no effort at all to move your clothing rails! Just use castors. Now what is a castor you may be thinking? Let me tell you what they are and how you can use them for your clothing rails.
What is a castor?
A castor is a wheeled device typically mounted to a larger object that enables relatively easy rolling movement of the object. Casters are essentially special housings that include a wheel, facilitating the installation of wheels on objects.
How are they used with Clothing rails?
Commonly found at the foot of clothing rails are bolt hole and bolt hole braked castors, these casters are used because most clothing rails have a long pole at the bottom of them, as they need to fit into a single hole hence why the bolt hole castors are used because they have a single hole for which the garment rail pole can fit into.
Never get tired again!
Now simply push your clothing rails around your shop with ease and little effort. No more getting tired lifting them around the place.
If you want to find out more about our bolt hole and bolt hole braked castors and how they can help you, please get in touch with our experts on 01296 431135 to find the best solution for you.
