VW – Wheel and castor series

Wheels and castors with “Blickle Soft” soft rubber tyres and pressed steel rim

The black tyre of the VW soft rubber series is made from the high quality “Blickle Soft” rubber compound with a hardness of 50 Shore A. It is fixed to the pressed or bolted pressed steel rim. With a round profile and a hardness of 50° Shore A, the tyres provide a high level of operational comfort and good floor preservation.

Due to its good floor surface preservation, the VW series is frequently used for applications where sensitive materials need to be protected against impact or shock. Examples include sensitive measuring equipment and transported goods in the glass industry. The series can also be used in wet environments. VW wheels and castors are frequently used as a puncture-proof alternative to pneumatic tyres .

  • VW – Wheels

    The VW series has diameters ranging between 125 and 260 mm in diameter as standard. Ball bearings and roller bearings are available as standard. The wheels are also available with a non-marking grey tyre
