Soft Rubber Caster Wheels
Soft Rubber Caster Wheels are a good choice for those applications where the average load is light with occasional loads using the full capacity of the wheel. Soft Rubber Caster Wheels are manufactured of quality materials with a resilient rubber tread bonded to the hard rubber core. These rubber wheels are an economical choice for moving equipment.
Soft Rubber Caster Wheels offer floor protection but can leave black marks on floors.Wheelchair Caster Wheels wear on rough surfaces and can become brittle if left outdoors, exposed to the elements. Economical in smaller sizes, soft rubber Caster wheels become more expensive in larger sizes, especially when premium rubber material is used.
Hard Rubber Caster Wheels
Rubber Caster Wheels are used where low cost, easy rolling wheels are required. Hard Rubber Caster Wheels offer good floor protection, are quieter than steel wheels, and are strong and chip resistant. Hard Rubber Wheels have a center line located in the middle of the tread. This center line, even when removed as close as possible, can cause damage to soft inexpensive floors. Hard Rubber Caster Wheels can become brittle over time, and more so when exposed to outdoor elements. Hard Rubber Caster Wheels can crack when dropped from limited heights or subjected to impact or shock.
