Compact and levelling caster series
Small casters for a stable hold
Compact casters combine a particularly impressive load capacity with a low mounting height. Some of these casters can support loads of up to 1543 lbs, with a total height of just 4 ⁷⁄₁₆ inch . Compact twin casters can handle even more: up to 3858 lbs with a total height of just 4 ¹⁵⁄₁₆ inch . They are perfectly suited for reducing the risk of tall and heavy furniture tipping over due to a high center of gravity. That’s why they are frequently used for server racks or control cabinets. Compact casters are the first choice when significant load capacities are required despite space being at a premium, such as under a hospital bed.
Blickle’s levelling casters are the perfect solution for mobile equipment, transport units and machinery which are frequently moved and then locked in place. They are frequently used for mechanical engineering applications, such as packaging machines, lathes and laboratory equipment. The same caster can be used to both get them in motion and lock them in place elsewhere. There usually is not enough space to use levelling feet alongside the casters. That’s why both functions were combined in the levelling caster. In contrast to standard locking systems, the wheel is raised when the truck lock is extended, removing the load. This protects the wheel and prevents flattening. The truck lock also keeps units secure and stable, even when used on heavy machinery.
