Spring loaded gate castor, specifically designed to help support the ends of wide gates or doors and to reduce the strain on hinges & supports and provide smooth operation and movement.
Suitable for use for industrial, agricultural, security or heavy domestic gates and doors the spring loaded design provides automatic height adjustment over uneven or sloping floor surfaces.
The castor features a 100mm Polyurethane tyred wheel with sealed ball bearing to provide years of smooth trouble free operation.
The spring has a maximum compression of 75mm and will provide up to 70kg of force* .
*Please note that gate castors are not designed to carry the entire weight of the gate, but to provide support at the ends of gates or doors to relieve the strain and wear on hinges and supports from the day-to-day use of the gates and also to provide a smoother & more controlled movement - therefore the gate castor needs to be mounted as far away from hinges or supports as is possible (i.e. at the opposite end) in order to be as effective as possible.
