Options for wheels and castors

Options

Truck locks. Directional locks. Bumpers.

The functionality of wheels or castors can be enhanced by using different options. Blickle provides the following options: Jacks/truck locks, directional locks, bumpers, hub caps and STARLOCK® caps, swivel heads, axle tubes and adapter plates.

  • Truck locks / jacks

    The truck locks and jacks are zinc-plated, blue-passivated and Cr6-free. They are attached directly to the transport unit. Truck locks are used to lock transport units in a resting position. By operating the pedal, the transport unit is somewhat relieved of its load without being lifted.
    Jacks are used to raise a transport unit to take the load off the wheels while it is in a resting position. The jacks provide their best performance if the total height of the operated jack is 5 mm higher than the selected swivel or fixed castors.
    Depending on the weight of the person operating the transport equipment, the lifting force is between 150 kg and 250 kg. The vertical load on the jack must not exceed 500 kg when raised.

  • Directional locks

    Directional locks fix the swivel motion of a swivel castor in specific directions. When the directional lock is activated, the swivel castor acts like a fixed castor without having to make structural changes to the swivel castor. Directional locks can also be retrofitted to castors. Directional locks are made from blue-passivated and zinc-plated steel or corrosion resistant steel

  • Bumpers

    Bumpers reduce the risk of damage to walls and transport trolleys in the event of a collision.
    Bumpers are available for round and square tubes. Two different designs are available: a soft polyethylene with a hardness of 48° Shore D and solid rubber with a hardness of 75° Shore A. The wheels are non-marking and available in grey, grey white or silver grey. They are fastened or mounted to tubular frames in the outsides of vehicles.

  • Hub caps and STARLOCK caps

    Hub caps are made from zinc-plated, blue-passivated, Cr6-free pressed steel.
    They protect the outside ball bearing of end wheels against dirt, dust, etc., and cover the axle end and wheel fitting. In end wheels, the ball bearing is slightly recessed on the outside of the hub. This makes it easy to fit the hub cap on the wheel hub.
    STARLOCK® caps are an easy way to fix light duty wheels on an axle. The wheel is placed on an axle as the end wheel, and the STARLOCK® cap is pressed onto the outer end of the axle.

  • Swivel heads

    Swivel heads can be used for a wide variety of applications: Rotating plates, rotating platforms, flatbed turntables or axle-pivot steering systems. Combined with standard fixed castors, they can create castor systems without an offset, which are easy to steer.

  • Axle tubes

    The PTFE-coated stainless steel axle tube consists of a corrosion-resistant axle tube with a PTFE coating. When rotating and under load, the PTFE coating expands onto the inside of the plain bore of the wheel. This provides the desired pairing (PTFE / stainless steel) with outstanding sliding characteristics. It also reduces noise emissions. This option is available for a wide range of heat-resistant wheel series.

  • Adapter plates

    Adapter plates can be used to compensate for differences between the mounting height of different castors. Adapter plates can also be used to modify the mounting height of the transport unit. Adapter plates are available in steel (zinc-plated, blue-passivated, Cr6-free) and synthetic (nylon, black) designs.
