Tango equipment castor with hand brake
The Tango castor with handbrake has been designed to meet the requests of users of mobility aid devices and other equipment, who must be able to brake and lock the castors by hand. The castor is meant for indoor use only.
Wheel braking can be controlled manually using the brake handle. If the brake handle has a separate parking lever, this can be used to lock the wheel rotation and prevent it from rolling.
The castor is fitted into a horizontal tube and includes a tube adapter. The elegant castor fitting solution is quick and easy to mount. The castor is available with a standard oval tube adapter that can be fitted into either an oval or square tube measuring 50 x 30 x 2 mm. Other tube adapters can be designed according to customer requests.
The hand brake feature is available for 125 mm Tango castors with a total-stop brake and directional lock. The feature can also be combined with the Tango castor incorporating a two-stage brake: total-stop brake and directional lock in the same castor. The castor has been tested and approved in accordance with the ISO 11199 standard for mobility aid devices. The handbrake feature is available on black, grey (RAL 7042) and light grey (RAL 7035) 125 mm Tango castors.
Two-stage brake for Tango castors
This two-stage brake combines directional locking and total-stop brake as separate functions. The brake pedals have two positions. Pressing the brake pedal halfway down locks the wheel in the running position while pressing the pedal all the way down locks also the wheel.
A two-stage brake is ideal for devices that need both directional lock and total-stop brake depending on the situation. First available for 125 mm diameter Tango castors.
