Special features

Manner provides a wide range of special castors for demanding applications: heat resistant, conductive, stainless and non-magnetic castors as well as castors with RFID tags. In addition, we design and manufacture customised castor solutions.

Heat-resistant castors

Heat-resistant castors and wheels are intended for applications in which the instantaneous temperature can reach up to +300°C. The temporary and constant heat resistance of the castors varies between +150 and +300°C depending on the materials used.

The forks are made of pressed steel. The double ball race in the fork swivel bearing is fitted with hardened steel balls. The material of the wheel is aluminium, heat resistant polyamide with solid rubber tyre or aluminium with rubber tyre. The polyamide and cast aluminium centre and the solid rubber tyre make the castor run quietly and steadily.

Plain or ball bearings in the castors are lubricated with high-temperature grease approved for use in the food industry. Also available with a seal designed to protect the swivel bearing.

Rubber tyre ensures that the castor runs quietly and smoothly. Castors also available with non-marking blue rubber tyre (GB wheels).

  • Bakery carts and oven trolleys
  • Paint shop carts
  • Other devices requiring heat resistance

Conductive castors

Conductive castors are used in places where static discharge must be directed away from a device or a trolley, or static discharge must be prevented.

Conductive Manner castors are made of high-quality raw materials that ensure excellent conductivity. Conductive castors are used in places where static discharge must be directed away from a device or a trolley, or static discharge must be prevented. Typical applications include, for example, the electronics industry and hospitals, in which the equipment or products are exposed to static electricity.

The castor frames are made of pressed steel or conductive glass fibre reinforced polyamide. The tread is electrically conductive polyamide, polyurethane or thermoplastic rubber. The castors are fitted with plain or ball bearings depending on the model.

All Manner conductive castors are ISO-compliant, meaning that their surface resistivity is less than 104 (10,000) ohms

Thanks to the materials used, tyres do not leave marks on the surface or the floor.

Stainless castors

Stainless castors are the right choice for wet and damp conditions that have a corrosive effect.

Stainless castors are the right choice for wet and damp conditions that have a corrosive effect. Our range includes a number of castor options in which the fork is made of either pressed stainless steel or glass fibre reinforced polyamide. The fork swivel bearing and the centre of the castor are fitted with a stainless bearing. Stainless castors are available with total-stop brake or direction locking depending on the model.

The castors are easy to clean and can be washed. When using detergents, please make sure that they do not damage the materials.

RFID castors

Manner RFID castor is an innovative solution combining a standard castor with radio frequency identification technology (RFID).

These castors are fitted with a special RFID tag, which makes it possible to keep track of the location of the equipment at any given time. The smart and efficient RFID castors have a reliable tracking and control system, which improves traceability and results in better equipment utilisation.

The RFID castors are durable, easily manoeuvrable plastic castors with a ball bearing. The tyre is of polyamide or polyamide with a polyurethane tread. The fork is made of steel or glass fibre reinforced polyamide, depending on the model.

  • Roll containers in logistics centres or haulage companies
  • Dairy or brewing industry trolleys and dollies
  • Laundry wagons
  • Hospital equipment and trolleys
  • Shopping carts

Non-magnetic castors

Non-magnetic castors are designed for environments where equipment must be non-magnetic to prevent it from interfering with nearby magnetic fields.

Non-magnetic castors in the Tango series are designed for environments where equipment must be non-magnetic to prevent it from interfering with nearby magnetic fields. Such environments include, for example, medical imaging facilities.

The fork is made of glass fibre reinforced polyamide. The special ball bearings in the swivel fork and the centre are completely non-magnetic. The castor is also available with plain bearings. The axle and mounting screw are made of brass.
