They are perfect for hotels, hospitals, warehouses and any other place where overall height and noise reduction are a priority.
Low Profile Heavy Duty Casters
The simple, low-profile design of these fixed casters not only allows them to be installed easily and unobtrusively, but their compact footprint also allows installation in locations that are too restrictive for other caster types. In addition to their primary use, they can also be used as rollers on workshop rails.
Low profile casters are so named because of their lower than average installation height (the distance between the floor and the product when the caster is properly installed). Low profile casters are ideal for applications requiring low clearance heights. These casters are ideal for copiers, refrigeration units and other heavy equipment that may not be moved frequently. Low clearance brings the product’s center of gravity closer to the ground without rendering the product unusable. Low profile casters generally have a higher load capacity; some of the casters here can support 1,000 lbs each.
