Fallshaw's specialised castors
Redesigned for special applications, our specialised castor range performs where ordinary castors fail. Whether you're working with Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV) and need self-aligning castors, or looking for castors that can resist rust or corrosion from showers or wet areas, or perhaps castors to perform in extreme hot or cold conditions (such as baking ovens or freezer rooms), you'll be sure to find a suitable castor for your specific application.
Stainless steel castors
Our stainless steel castors are the premium castors for corrosive environments. Manufactured from high-quality grade 304 stainless steel, they are 100% corrosion free, and come in a wide range of styles and load capacities.
Specially designed for corrosive environments (particularly, castors for shower chair applications). Zinc plated and then powder-coated for better corrosion resistance from substances such as alkaline soaps and other cleaning agents, these castors have stainless steel bottom races and twin ball races with stainless steel balls, covered by a diaphragm shroud to stop water entering from above). The wheels are available with a plain PBT (corrosion free) bush or a stainless steel precision bearing with thread guards to prevent the build-up of hair and lint.
High/low temperature-resistant castors
While our standard wheels and castors have a working temperature range of 5°C to 60°C, we also make specialised high temperature castors designed to withstand temperatures of baking ovens (ideal for use on bakery racks), and low temperature castors that can survive in freezing rooms. These specialised castors can cope with temperatures between -30°C to 400°C.
Self-aligning castors for Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV) carts ensure that the castors align with the AGV’s direction of travel when it is lifted off the ground. This ensures that the castor avoids coming into contact with walls, pedestrians or the AGV itself.
Supermarket trolley and travelator castors
Our range of castors designed for supermarket trolleys and travelators are built for reliability and safety.
