Light-Duty, Non-Corrosive Casters

W.T. Hight Company, Inc. announces the introduction of new Genesis Series casters for applications requiring debris-free operation and quiet, effortless mobility such as medical carts, IV poles, electronic equipment, seating, monitoring equipment stands, computer carts, laboratory equipment, and audio/video carts. The new light-duty Genesis casters feature a dual sealed precision bearing swivel and wheel to provide quiet, efficient rolling with effortless mobility. Soft (65A), non-marking MonoTech wheels reject debris and offer added shock absorption for optimum performance on carpet as well as hard floors with high mobility over thresholds, cords and barriers. Full thread guards keep wheels from entangling hair and debris, promoting long caster life. A strong, protective body is non-corrosive and conceals all components, allowing for easy cleaning, the company states.

The new Genesis Series casters from W.T. Hight are available in wheel diameters of 3 inches with a load capacity of 110 lbs. and 4 inches with a load capacity of 225 lbs. Casters are available with various threaded stems, grip ring stems, and (on 4-inch models) top plates. An optional matching integrated tread brake design offers easy activation and positive engagement, while a steel brake spring adds strength and durability.

5-inch diameter models in free swivel and swivel with a total lock brake design are being planned for release as well, according to W.T. Hight. Standard colors include black, white, and gray. Custom colors are also available in low minimum quantities, according to the company. A central locking total lock brake and additional fastenings are also optionally available.
