Quick Guide How To Measure A Wheel

In order to purchase the correct wheel there are some critical dimensions we require to ensure we supply the correct wheel.

  1. Use an accurate measuring devise.
  2. Wheel Diameter – this is the distance across the wheel from edge to edge
  3. Tread Width – This is the surface area of the wheel which touches the ground
  4. Hub Length – This is the length through the centre of the wheel – where the shaft would run
  5. Bore Size- This is the diameter of the hole in the centre of the wheel – double check this by measuring the outside diameter of the shaft or axle the wheel is intended to fit.
  6. Type of Bore – your wheel may have a number of centre bores:
    1. Plain Bore – Wheels with no bearing
    2. Needle Roller Bearing – A cage containing needle rollers
    3. Ball Bearing- Precision bearing
  7. Tyre Material – what is the tyre made from.
  8. Core Material – What is the centre of the wheel made from.
  9. Weight Loading – you may not 100% know the loading required however if you explain your application we can advise the product ranges we can offer.

 

Still not sure call our technical sales people who will be more than happy to assist.

Coldene Castors Garment rails Castors

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.

News Letter June 2019

Our manufacturing capability is really opening doors for us with some very exciting projects currently in progress.

One such project is the provision of our  Automotive Sprung Loaded Castors which are 100% made in the UK by us.

Our client has an existing application where the castors were failing due to increased load demand. Our UK design engineers redesigned, improved and strengthened the castors while managing to save 15 kg off the unit weight (which was another client requirement).

We are proud that every aspect of this project has been completed by Coldene. This achievement is especially important because it now means  we have the ability to compete with our European rivals.

ISO Container Castors T24

Our heavy duty 24-tonne container castors have undergone a design review after client feedback reported that the old design was heavy and therefore difficult to manoeuvre into position and attach to the ISO container. We have therefore added a jockey wheel and arm to aid the movement and positioning of the castor.. Heavy lugging is now a thing of the past.
