Castor Braking Systems

Free Wheeling:

Allows for constant movement, loaded and unloaded.

GRX38FB Soft, 38mm Plate

Wheel Brake:

This option has a footbrake pedal which when pushed down applies a wheel brake to both wheels of the twin wheel castor, the pedal is raised to release the wheel brake. Applications include office furniture, display units, equipment stands and mobile units.

Storage unity with castors

Total Lock:

This option has a braking system that locks the swivel and wheels of the castor at the same time. This gives more rigidity to the unit to which the castors are fitted when the total locking system is activated by pushing the pedal downwards. The total lock braking system is released by moving the pedal in the opposite direction. This system is commonly used on table systems, medical equipment, diagnostic equipment and shop and display units.

Brake Unloaded:

This option allows for freedom of movement for people working on office chairs but applies the brake automatically when they leave the chair. This system helps reduce the likelihood of the unoccupied chair accidentally rolling away. The castors are available both in hard wheel and soft tyre options, hard wheels are recommended for carpeted floors and soft tyres for stone, vinyl or wooden flooring.

The castors are available both in hard wheel and soft tyre options, hard wheels are recommended for carpeted floors and soft tyres for stone, vinyl or wooden flooring.

Conductive Products


Conductive castors are designed to prevent the build-up of a static charge while rolling, they can be used on carts and equipment and chairs where negating static electricity is a must.

Conductive castors or glides allow static electricity to flow from the unit to the floor dissipating the static charge. Assembly carts within manufacturing such as computer or electronics industries require the ability to eliminate static charges, and conductive castor wheels perform this function.

Antimicrobial Castors


An antimicrobial option is now available in our bestselling GRX castors range incorporating BioCote® silver ion technology. This enables you to offer permanent antimicrobial protection with your product in care homes, hospitals, veterinary surgeries, GP surgeries and more.
BioCote® technology inhibits the growth of moulds and bacteria such as E.coli and MRSA, and is proven to reduce bacteria levels by up to 99% within two hours. The antimicrobial additive is incorporated into the castors at the time of manufacture so that it provides continuous antimicrobial protection for the expected lifetime of the product and will not wear off or wash away.

A number of our threaded and circlip castor stems, as well as castor axles, are now available in stainless steel for applications where castors may be subjected to wet conditions, or brass which is suitable for MRI Conditional products.
