Castors & Wheels for all your Kitchen Equipment

Die-Pat currently stocks and supplies eight types of castors and wheels for your catering equipment. These range from our economy castors, institutional castors, light duty castors to medium duty catsors.

 

Castor Fittings

Bolt Hole Fitting

This is a castor setup where you'll be using one central bolt hole fitting, and this has a swivelling castor housing as well as a bolt hole diameter of the size M10, M12, M16. It's important to note as well that this type of castor can be fitted with a tubular expander in order to fit either square or round tubing. A swivel featuring a brake is also available for this type of castor.

Plate Fitting

This castor is basically a square or rectangular plate that has four fixing bolts. What these four fixing bolts do is provide an overall strong fixing, and they also distribute the weight evenly. These can either be a swivelling castor, fixed, or else a swivel with a brake.

 

Types of Castor Wheels

Hard Tread Wheels

This type of wheel is by far the easiest to push, and it also offers the least resistance. The only thing with this type of wheel is that it is a bit on the noisy side, and it's also important to note that these wheels can damage certain types of floor. These wheels are available in cast iron and steel, nylon, polypropylene, and phenolic.

Soft Tread Wheels

Soft tread wheels will give you more resistance, which basically means that they'll be harder to push overall. But this comes with a trade off, as these wheels are far quieter and won't cause as much damage to floors in general. These wheels come in rubber, non marking rubber, polyurethane, high temperature rubber, and pneumatic wheels.
