As a rule, swivel castors and fixed castors
are affixed together to ensure you can move things straight ahead easily. The fixed castors are responsible for staying on course, ensuring that the item being moved keeps moving straight ahead. If you only order swivel castors, supplementing these with a directional stop (on request) is recommended. This ensures you can park the items you are transporting safely, as the rotary motion of the castors is blocked, making them act like fixed castors. You can easily activate or release the stop with a step of your foot. The double stop function makes everything even safer: in addition to blocking the rolling motion, the rotary motion of the fork head is blocked. To make sure that you order the right swivel castors and fixed castors, please check whether the wheels are suitable for the area of use. Any questions concerning this are answered by our castor guide
, or simply give us a call.
