ALK Braking Mechanism
ALK braking mechanism is engaged by stepping on the Toe that securely and positively locks two rubber grommets to the tread of the wheel and simultaneously locks the swivel raceway in any position. ALK is conveniently located in lead position and has metal construction that will stand up to industrial abuse. Available in stainless steel.
All Swivel Lock (ASL)
All Wheel Lock (AWL)
ASL braking mechanism is engaged by stepping on the Toe that securely and positively locks the swivel raceway in any position. AWL brake mechanism is engaged by stepping on the Toe that securely and positively locks two rubber grommets to the tread of the wheel.
Side Locking Brake (SLB)
Side Locking Brake is the most economical wheel brake. When the SLB is engaged, it compresses the hub of the yoke, creating friction upon the hub of the wheel. The larger casters have a large foot pedal that makes engaging brake easy to operate and easy access to engage brake. Available in stainless steel.
Double Locking Brake (DLB)
Double Locking Brake mechanism engages a positive braking action on the tread surface of the wheel, while simultaneously locking the swivel raceway in any position. Plastic petal resists rust and corrosion in wet environments. Available in stainless steel.
Top Locking Brake (TLB)
The Top Locking Brake creates a positive braking action on the surface of the wheel. TLB1 is same as TLB but with actuator that is coated with a polyurethane coating that gives a greater positive lock on the surface of the wheel. TLB2 same as TLB but with a larger foot pedal making brake easier to engage and disengage and provides better foot placement.
eHABS – Emergency Hand Activated Brake System™ - patent pending
The Hand Braking Device has many possibilities that allow for a brake or swivel lock to be engaged and disengaged by hand, instead of the conventional foot operated devices. The HBD is excellent for ergonomically challenged applications. As well, the brake can be engaged with greater speed.
Position Swivel Lock (PSL)
Position Swivel Lock converts a swivel caster to rigid. PSL can be disengaged into neutral position to allow for free swiveling action. The spring loaded plunger is hand operated to fit into slots in the swivel raceway. Can be purchased pre-welded to top plate when mounting bolts to the top plate.
