Swivel Castors are generaly used on most applications that require Castors.  Swivel Castors allow for Equipment or Machinery to maneuver in a full 360 degree direction.........

Swivel Castors usually comprise of a double ball race (Ball Bearing) swivel head, which can either be a Single Bolt Fixing Castor or a Top Plate Castor, and allow for a full 360 degrees of movement.  When fitted with Swivel castors, equipment can be moved in any chosen direction of travel, and can maneuver around corners and tight spaces.  In some Castors, such as Food Industry Castors, the Ball Bearings are greased & fully enclosed.  This stops contamination developing or getting out of the greased castor.  The Enclosed Ball Bearings are normally maintenance free.   As with most Castors, they can be supplied with brakes, and can also be fitted with Directional locks.
