Static load capacity of TENTE casters and wheels

Read more


The static load capacity applies when transport equipment is not moved or is rarely moved. It represents the load that the castors and wheels can withstand under uniform distribution of the load. The static load rating is of particular relevance here: This load rating refers to a load whose weight and direction remains constant. At maximum load, the contact pressure at the centre of the contact area between raceway and rolling element is 4,000 megapascals (MPa). At higher values, rotation is impeded.

The static load capacity data can be found in the product details of the individual casters and wheels. Please note the load capacity value is calculated for standard operating conditions, for example: with smooth floors, traveling in a straight line at walking speed, with an even load distribution and at an ambient temperature between 15 °C and 28 °C. If the transport equipment fitted with TENTE casters and wheels is used in other conditions, for example on uneven floors, at extreme temperatures or with movement in constantly changing directions – then this value will change.

Static or dynamic

For transport equipment where casters and wheels are in continuous or frequent motion, the sulu:link href="f3ce3a7b-1a8e-495e-a085-85ede63701cd" provider="page" target="_self" title="Dynamic load capacity of castors">dynamic load capacity is relevant. This value is lower than the static load capacity. It is also important that a safety factor is taken into account when determining the required load capacity.
