castors and wheels

Welcome to the last part of March 2023. The clocks leap forward an hour in just over a week, and a lot of factories and schools use this time to replace batteries. Merlin Industrial has been getting some spring-cleaning done.

The main https://merlin-industrial.com/ website is now back to being an industrial catalogue with formative articles and news and updates on the latest industrial products.

Merlin Industrial have moved products to two new sites;

https://merlinshop.co.uk/ All the safety signs and labels are now here

and

https://castors.org.uk/ Castors, Wheels, Truck Locks and a new easy to use filter to help find the castor or wheel that you need quickly and at a better price.

The difficult decision to split the products from the main site was after the poor performance due to the large amount of products. By moving the products to dedicated shops, we have decreased the website response times dramatically.

The Latest New and updated pages

March 22nd Update

Welcome to the latest Merlin Industrial news and updates. The biggest news is the new castors and wheels website at https://castors.org.uk/ 

Since 1994 castors have been a major product for Merlin Industrial and, with the new site, even easier to specify, find and budget.

A castor is a small, pivoting wheel mounted on a fork or a plate that is attached to the bottom of an object. Castors typically have a swivel mechanism that allows them to rotate 360 degrees, making it easy to change the direction of movement. Casters are commonly used on furniture, carts, and other mobile equipment.

Wheels, on the other hand, are circular components that rotate around an axle. They can be attached directly to the bottom of an object, or they can be mounted on a caster. Wheels are available in a variety of sizes, materials, and designs, depending on the application.

Both casters and wheels can be made from a variety of materials, including rubber, plastic, metal, and composite materials. The type of material used depends on the application and the specific requirements for the caster or wheel, such as load capacity, durability, and resistance to abrasion and chemical exposure.

Overall, castors and wheels are essential components for enabling the movement of objects, and they are used in a wide range of applications across industries such as manufacturing, transportation, warehousing, and retail.

Castors and Wheels for 2023

Like all things age and use leaves a mark but, if you are a castor or a wheel we can help rejuvenate the rubber or polyurethane tyres extending the life and improving the rolling action.
