When it comes to the driving characteristics of a castor, the following rule generally applies: The larger the wheel, the better.
However, many applications require a low overall height. In such cases, it is important to achieve an intelligent compromise between wheel size and overall height. A flatter version can be achieved with a well thought-out overall design in which the fixing of the castor is set particularly low. This reduces the overall height without changing the wheel diameter.
A low overall height plays a vital role in various fields of application: These include logistics, the medical and industrial sectors, as well as office furnishings and equipment. Machines, equipment and furniture with castors that have a low overall height allow optimum utilisation and organisation of the space available. A low overall height also ensures that the centre of gravity is lower. This reduces the tilting moment, increases stability and ultimately improves the safety of the application.
