When choosing equipment for your facility, every component matters. Even something as small as the wheels for your casters can have a big impact on how your carts and other equipment perform, which can make a noticeable difference in the operation of your facility. Fortunately, our team at Heavy Duty Casters is here to help you find the perfect wheels and casters for your needs.
In this article, we’ll focus on our semi-pneumatic wheels, going over some of their benefits so you can decide if they are right for you. For reference, semi-pneumatic wheels have a thicker layer of rubber than standard pneumatic tires, as well as a smaller, non-pressurized air pocket.
- Puncture Resistance – One of the chief advantages of semi-pneumatic wheels is their resistance to punctures. Because they rely primarily on their thick rubber to maintain their shape and utility, and because the air inside is not pressurized, semi-pneumatic wheels do not deflate when punctured. This makes them a great choice for environments where sharp debris is a concern because they’ll stay functional even if you happen to roll over a nail.
- Ease of Use – Another advantage of semi-pneumatic wheels is how easy they are to use and replace. When a semi-pneumatic wheel finally gives out and needs to be replaced, it is a simple matter to swap it out for another one, which means you can get the cart it’s attached to back in service in no time.
- Cost-Effectiveness – Lastly, semi-pneumatic tires are highly affordable and cost effective. You will need quite a few wheels for all the casters in your facility, so it’s wise to pick a relatively low-cost option like these.
