Rigid Caster

The TENTE rigid caster keeps everything right on track

The fixed caster is used whenever long distances need to be covered in one direction. It provides the necessary directional stability for maneuvering trolleys along straight corridors, for instance.

When vehicles need to be easy to maneuver, they are often equipped with four swivel casters. This is not, however, desirable for all applications, because stability suffers as a result of the maneuverability causing the trolleys to often veer off course. In contrast to swivel casters that can turn in all directions, the fixed caster is significantly better at traveling in straight lines, as it is fixed in relation to the vehicle. Because a vehicle equipped only with fixed casters is not steerable, however, fixed casters are often used in combination with swivel castors. The result is both good directional stability and cornering ability.

The TENTE fixed castor is available in countless variations: as a designer castor for institutional applications, as a castor for industrial transport equipment, as a heavy-duty castor that can carry hundreds of kilos, and numerous other versions. Materials, diameter, bearing type and load capacity of the fixed castor differ depending on the application. On request, it can be manufactured from frost-resistant stainless steel or heat and cold-resistant materials for use in ovens or refrigerated warehouses. Their solid construction makes the fixed castor an important aid to everyday work.

A sprung fixed castor can be used to absorb bumps or impacts when transporting vibration-sensitive goods. If required, it absorbs annoying transport noise, thus facilitating quiet loading and unloading at night.

Whether they're being used outdoors, in hot, damp, dusty conditions or on uneven ground – at TENTE you'll find the fixed roller you need for transporting your goods. We look forward to receiving your inquiry!
