Total Locking Casters – Stainless Caster Model 3A

Total Locking Stainless Caster Model 3A

Plate Mount - Stainless Steel

Capacity up to 300 pounds per caster. Stainless steel casters are ideal for use in a wet or corrosive environment.These casters are ideal for most light duty applications where a caster must be totally immobile when the caster brake is applied. Caster Model 3A has a unique brake which locks both the wheel and the swivel bearing simultaneously. This “Total-Lock” brake insures that the swivel caster will not turn when the wheel is locked. This combination wheel brake and swivel lock is essential for safety in some applications – such as on worktables and medical equipment. The Total-Lock brake is desireable whenever a brake is needed because it makes a swivel caster totally immobile.

“You should never select on the basis of load capacity alone. There is no industry standard for load capacity ratings and they may not include a factor for abuse. Our capacity ratings are below what the casters are capable of carrying because most applications have less than perfect conditions. Please refer to the information shown at the bottom of this page. If you have any doubt as to which wheel or caster is the BEST choice for your application contact us for a recommendation.”

Total Locking Stainless Caster Model 3A Features:

Swivel Radius for Casters with the Total-Lock Brake – 4 3/8″

Approximate Weights – Swivel Caster with ML Brake – 3″ wheel = 1 3/4 lbs. – 4″ wheel = 2 lbs. – 5″ wheel = 2 1/2 lbs.

Use the Polyolefin ( Industrial Plastic ) wheel for “Standing Loads”. Polyolefin wheels eliminate the possiblilty of a flat spot developing if the castered equipment is left parked for a prolong period.

Total Locking Brake:

Combination Wheel Brake and Swivel Lock – This brake simultaneously locks the wheel and the swivel. One step on the activating pedal instantly locks the entire caster holding the equipment firmly in place. One step on the release pedal frees the swivel and wheel.
