    When purchasing castors (also known as caster wheels), there are several important factors to consider. Here are some key points for you to make a good choice:

    Load capacity

    Determine the maximum weight that the castor will need to support.

    The load capacity should be over your specific requirements for safe and efficient operation.


    Wheel Material

    The choice of wheel material depends on the type of flooring or surface the castor will roll on. Common wheel materials include rubber, polyurethane, nylon and metal. Different material has different features.


    Wheel Diameter

    Consider the size of the wheel based on your specific application.

    Larger wheels provide smoother rolling over uneven surfaces. Smaller wheels may be more suitable for confined spaces.


    Wheel Type

    Castors come in various types, such as swivel, rigid, or lockable swivel.

    Swivel castors allow for 360-degree rotation, while rigid castors only move in a straight line. Lockable swivel castors are more flexible between swivel and fixed positions.


    Mounting Options

    Evaluate the mounting options available for the castor.

    Different types include plate mount, stem mount, and bolt hole mount.

    Ensure that the mounting method matches your specific application and equipment.


    Environment and Conditions

    Consider the operating environment and conditions where using the castors.

    Factors such as temperature extremes, moisture, chemicals, and rough surfaces may require specific wheel materials or coatings.


    Quality and Brand

    Select castors from reputable manufacturers or suppliers.

    Good quality castors will provide better durability, smooth operation, and reliability over time.
