- Fallshaw castors combine form
and function. You won't have to choose between style and performance - you
can have both.
We think hard about the design so that you won't have to.
Light to medium duty castors
General to heavy duty castors
Very Heavy Duty (VHD) castors
Choose the wheel based on the type of floor surface
Rough ground & outdoors
- Bouncy, elastic tyre help get over bumps. That’s why
wheel barrows and other applications that involve rough ground use pneumatic
or rubber tyres.
Soft & Smooth floors
- Hard wheels have high load bearing capacity and reduce
push effort on carpet and soft surfaces but are very noisy on tiles and
other hard surfaces and can also leave indentations on wooden floors.
Variable floor surfaces
- Road cases are a classic example of tyres that need to
adapt to a wide range of floor surfaces. When bands are on the move, their
equipment needs to travel over bitumen, carpet, lino, wood and over curbs
and stairs. These wheels go everywhere!
Fallshaw supplies 3 types of pneumatic wheels:
- Fallshaw tyres are made from a mix of natural and
synthetic rubber in 4 ply (or 6 ply for the 400x8HWY) for excellent
durability, abrasion resistance,elasticity and strength. Lower quality
alternatives on the market have a shiny appearance and a distinctive oil
smell, indicating a high proportion of reground tyres (crumbed rubber). This
leads to poor strength (particularly around the bead wire which can cause
tyres to pop off the rim under load) and short product life.
Semi-pneumatic puncture-proof wheels
- Polyurethane foam-filled tyres are the premium
‘pneumatic’ (or semi-pneumatic) wheel option: the wheels are puncture proof
and provide the greatest performance and reliability. Semi-pneumatics are
fitted to two piece wobble-free steel centres. Manufactured from 1.8mm
Traditional steel centred (tube type)
- Supplied with tubes for high performance and improved
weight carrying capacity. These wheels can be retrofitted with tubes if
original tyres are punctured. Steel centred wheels provide higher load
capacity and reliable long life performance. Sizes up to and including the
500x6 are manufactured from 1.8mm steel, and the 650x8 is of 2mm thick
Traditional plastic centred (tube type)
- Plastic centred pneumatics are supplied with butyl rubber
seamless (butt-joined) tubes as standard. These premium tubes provide
greater reliability and longer life than cheaper alternatives. Tubes can be
replaced if originals are punctured. Plastic centred wheels are the low cost
alternative, with excellent performance in wet and corrosive environments.
