ALPrene™ WheelsALPreneTM is highly resistant to most chemicals and is excellent for all floor surfaces. The APR wheel provides for medium load capacities and is superb for moist and wet environments. Quiet and easy rolling, this black wheel is shock absorbing and will reject all floor debris. It does not flat spot permanently under a static load. Excellent for all floor surfaces. ALPreneTM wheels are suitable to temperatures of -22°F to 300°F for short term exposure and -10°F to 150°F for continuous use
Pedal Wheel Brake
The latest innovation from the engineers at Algood is the pedal wheel brake for the 1900 series. This is a front loading wheel brake which primarily works with the ProTech™ and the Envirothane™ wheel in 3", 4" and 5" X 1 1/4". PWB is made out of stainless material and therefore is corrosion resistant.
eHABS – Emergency Hand Activated Brake System™ - patent pending
This patent pending Hand Activated Brake™ can be customized to lock the swivel head or the wheel brake. The HAB™ is available in a wide variety of KingPinFree™ series. Excellent accessibility for recessed applications.
Custom Hub Caps
Algood is renowned for its engineering and design. Customized Hub caps and wheels are simply and economically tooled in house.
Custom Mag Wheels
Algood is renowned for its engineering and design. Customized Mag Wheels have been created to authenticate customized wheel rims. The Mag Wheels have Algood’s proprietary RollX™ material which is securely bonded to the unique Aluminum cores. The Mag Wheels not only have a distinct appearance but are excellent for high capacity applications.
High Temp Lava™
Algood’s High Temp Lava™ series are excellent for temperatures up to 475ºF and 525ºF intermittently. Lava™ wheels will not break down in wet high temperature applications. Lava™ wheels are capable of 2,000 lbs capacity. Lava™ wheels range in sizes including 4” x 1-1/2”, ”4”x 2”, 5” x 2”, 6” x 2” and 8” x 2”.
The Lava™ is non-marking and has been exclusively developed by Algood with thermoplastic nylon material, which is excellent for high load capacities. The Lava™ wheel is extremely ergonomically efficient, as it requires minimum effort to roll casters with heavy loads. Lava™ wheels resist hard impacts and are resistant to most chemicals, solvents, gases, acids, steam cleaning and do not absorb water! The Lava™ wheel is ideal for industrial and institutional applications. The shore hardness (durometer) of the Lava™ is 85 +/-5 on the D scale.
The Theatrical Tyke™ is a caster that is designed for applications where smooth, uninterrupted, free flow swiveling of a caster is required. Theatrical Tyke™ is designed with three swivel casters mounted to a triangular top plate. The weight capacity and the overall height vary according to which casters and wheels are mounted to the triangular top plate. The principle of the Theatrical Tyke™ can be applied to any series, but recently we have designed it for our 800, 1900, 5000 and Tornado series, ranging for capacities of 75 lbs. to 1,000 lbs. This caster design is excellent for studio, theatre and stage equipment manufacturing.
