Vipor Wheels are made from a specialized material which provides excellent abrasion resistance with a very high-tech look. They are resistant to chemicals and oils.
Thermoplastic Rubber (TPR) wheels are a better alternative to standard rubber wheels. Non-marking, and floor-protective, the tread is chemically bonded to the core, and is resistant to chemicals and oils, and ideal for wash-down applications. The temperature range is -40° to 180° F. TPR wheels can be manufactured in a variety of special colors; please consult the factory for minimums and details.
MonoTech wheels provide ultimate floor protection, and a quiet, cushioned ride. They roll over obstacles with ease and will not flat spot. Excellent on any floor type, MonoTech wheels reject floor debris, including metal shavings and glass. Donut tread wheels provide easier rollability and maneuverability. Their temperature range is -45° to 180° F.
The Total Lock Brake (pictured, left)locks both wheel and swivel rotation simultaneously, and are available on all models. A two-position direction lock (not pictured) is available as special order only; please contact factory for details.
Three finishes are available: Zinc-Plated, Black, or Bright Chrome.
