About Our Fabricated Extra Heavy Duty Castors Top Plate

Our 6000 Series & 8000 Series of Extra Heavy Duty Fabricated castors are for extreme applications. These castors are thick plate steel, welded and chromatised for added corrosion protection. With castor load ratings from 320kg each up to 4 tonnes each, these fabricated castors are the backbone for gantry's, travelling gantry wheels, cargo and docks, refineries, marine applications, containers and furnaces. The most popular fabricated castor being the polyurethane version. This castor has a cast iron core with a bonded and extremely durable polyurethane wheel. A more competitively priced option would be the nylon fabricated castor.

The extremely heavy duty polyurethane wheel and the fabricated castor housing combination produces a castor that can take weights of up to four tonnes each. Put four of these castors on an a frame or gantry and they can manoeuvre weights of up 12 tonnes in total. Fabricated castors can be supplied either in a swivel fabricated housing, fixed or with a brake or the option of a directional lock. The 8000 Series is available as a swivel or fixed version. The foot operated braked castor simultaneously brakes both the wheel and the fabricated swivel head. A real heavy weight champion of the Ross Castor Range!
