Unrivalled Experience That Underpins Our Expert Advice

At Rolltek, our team of specialists share more than a century of hands-on industry experience serving a variety of sectors, including distribution, catering, retail, automotive, aerospace, medical, and aviation. Backed by our state-of-the-art in-house design, tooling, and manufacturing capabilities, we can design effective solutions tailored specifically to your operating environment and business needs. No project is too challenging for our engineers, and our products are rigorously tested to ensure they meet exact specifications.

Securing Long-Term Durability

The premature wear of castors damages productivity, as equipment has to be taken out of service for repairs, while a complete and unexpected failure can be a serious health and safety hazard. By collaborating with an expert from Rolltek, you can be confident that your castors will be designed and engineered with longevity, safety, and performance in mind.

We commence all projects by comprehensively evaluating key parameters such as load weights, floor surfaces, operating temperatures, chemical exposure, frequency of use, and desired manoeuvrability. Our guided specification process examines all technical, operational, and budgetary factors to pinpoint the optimal wheel design.

Incorporating Advanced Features

All castors are not the same, as they can differ in wheel material, tread type, size, weight capacity, and manoeuvrability. They may also feature customisations for specific applications or environments: in harsh manufacturing settings, for example, they may need to resist chemicals to prevent deterioration, while in hospitals, lightweight castor locking mechanisms prevent medical equipment from rolling.

We can advise you on advanced features to optimise your ROI, including:

  • Brakes
  • Antistatic measures
  • Lifting mechanisms
  • Non-marking treads
  • Smart sensors

Our collaborative approach gives you that vital competitive edge by ensuring you benefit from tailored solutions that meet your specifications and needs. Consultation with our specialists at the planning stage is key, as this enables us to astutely understand your business, the different applications within the workplace, and the problems you wish to overcome.
