Designed to move moderate loads via manual propulsion, new ET Series casters feature an optional fixed-position brake for four-inch diameter swivel models. The brake mounts to the top plate so that it is always in the same easy-to-access position regardless of which way the swivel wheel is facing.
The fixed-position brake is ideally suited for grocery roll pallets that lock inside of trucks; however, ET Series casters are also designed for point-of-sale displays, warehouse racks, medical and hospital carts, and mobile appliances, A/V equipment and other mobile products used in commercial, institutional, and industrial facilities.
New ET Series swivel models feature a double-ball raceway for smooth directional movement with the capability to withstand shock loading. Fixed and swivel models are available in wheel sizes of 4″ (100mm) and 5″ (125mm) diameter with load capacities ranging from 264 to 550 lbs. (120 to 250kg.) Wheel types include polyurethane-on-nylon with roller bearings, and black nylon or blue rubber with precision ball bearings.
Fixed models have an oblong top plate. Swivel models are available with either a special top plate for the fixed-position brake (4″/100mm dia. models only) or a standard top plate. Accessories include wheel locks for standard swivel models and threadguards to prevent debris from binding the wheel.
