Blickle swivel castors for every application
The right swivel castor for every application
Swivel castors make it easy to manoeuvre machines, equipment and trolleys. These castors can be pivoted around their vertical axis. They are the counterpart to fixed castors, which can only move in a linear direction. A swivel castor consists of a swivel bracket and a wheel. The bracket is available in a variety of sizes and materials, from synthetic materials through to pressed steel and stainless steel. With over 60 swivel bracket series and over 80 standard wheel series, Blickle has the perfect swivel castor for every application.

What is the difference between swivel castors and fixed castors?
Swivel castors attached to trolleys swivel freely for easy manoeuvrability - even on the spot. However, this high degree of manoeuvrability is not always the best choice for applications that involve long straight usage, as directional stability decreases and it is more difficult for the user to move the trolley in a straight line. For this reason, most trolleys are additionally equipped with non-swivelling fixed castors.
Is there a swivel castor and a fixed castor in one?
If one wanted to combine the characteristics of a swivel and fixed castor into one castor, a directional lock could be attached to the swivel housing. If the user activates the directional lock, the swivel axis of the swivel head would be blocked creating a fixed castor. When the directional lock is released, the castor can be swivelled again.
Are there swivel castors with brakes?
Are there swivel castors with a threaded pin?
