VLE – Wheel and castor series

Heavy duty wheels and castors with super-elastic solid rubber tyres and a pressed steel rim

In the VLE series, tyres made from super-elastic solid rubber are bolted together with pressed steel rim sections. The super-elastic solid rubber tyre has a hardness of 70° Shore A and consists of two or three different components, depending on the wheel diameter.
The tough rubber compound used for the rubber core makes sure that the tyre remains stable on the rim, even under heavy loads. The highly elastic damping ring keeps the temperature of the tyre low at high speeds, while the abrasion-resistant tread protects the tyre against external damage and ensures that it remains in service for a long time. The tyres are available with a ribbed or zig-zag profile.

The VLE series is puncture-proof, maintenance-free and available as a hub fitting wheel VLEA series.

  • VLE – Wheels

    The wheels in the VLE series come in sizes ranging between 250 and 525 mm in diameter as standard. They are available with a ribbed or zig-zag profile.
