Calculation of Load Capacity

In order to calculate the required load capacity of each castor it is recommended to devide the total load of a transport units with 4 wheels by 3, as due to e.g. uneven floors or unequal loading not all of the 4 wheels will carry the load equally at all times.

The load rating mentioned in our catalogue refers to a maximum speed of 4 km/h on a smooth, even and clean surface at a temperature of about 20° C.

With our calculator you can calculate the necessary load capacity per castor yourself. However, it is recommended to give us a call in order to get personal advice, because beside the correct load capacity there are other criteria to identify the correct wheel or castor for your application.
