The Importance of Rubber
Rubber is a well-known material that is often taken for granted. Although there are natural forms available, most of the rubber that is in use today is synthetic. Rubber is a material that has a mechanical property; it can undergo pressure and changes and still revert to its original condition with little to no permanent or noticeable demarcation. It is a material that has many varied uses that can be put to repeated tests in difficult conditions and still remain ready to use for the next application.
Also Important and Overlooked
Another item that is well known and often over-looked is the caster. In the world of movement, casters invariably keep things rolling, and hardly get a glance of acknowledgement for their relentless work. And their importance is not something to take for granted. In fact, taking the time to determine specific details about the size, shape, make-up and material of a caster and wheel can result in much more speed, efficiency and long-lasting capabilities.
A Perfect Match
Casters are ever-important accessories when it comes to moving things, whether they are attached to furniture or equipment. The combination of a strongly designed caster made out of a durable material such as rubber makes for a perfect match for many jobs. No matter the size or design of the caster, it is almost always possible to select a rubber wheel option. Douglas Equipment offers casters that range in weight-bearing load from 75lbs to 8,000lbs and offers most styles in some type of rubber. Predominantly the type of rubber that is available is the Performa Rubber, which is available in a variety of treads. In the lightweight categories there are also cushion rubber and hard rubber options and in the heavyweight categories there are additional rubber options such as Moldon Rubber.
Benefits of Rubber Caster Wheels
There are many benefits when it comes to the combination of a caster with a rubber wheel. The rubber offers a quiet, shock absorbent ride. Rubber caster wheels not only help to protect the items being moved by minimizing vibrations, they can also help to protect floors of many kinds. Rubber caster wheels are very durable and can offer these protections while showing very little wear and tear. In this way, oftentimes rubber caster wheels are the best economical choice.
No matter what job needs to be accomplished and what item needs to be moved, there is a caster for the job, and very likely there is a potential rubber wheel option.
