Casters And Wheels For The Outdoors - Caster Connection's Recommendations
It's prime outdoor working, grilling and chilling season and no one wants to do any heavy lifting. Make it mobile with Caster Connection's selection of suitable casters and wheels for the outdoors. It’s a big world out there, and finding the right caster to handle your climate or terrain is a major key.
WHAT ABOUT STAINLESS STEEL?
Stainless steel casters casters are obviously the best choice when it comes to wet conditions but they have a higher up-front cost and can still rust if left in really wet conditions for prolonged periods of time. If you’re not willing to spend more for stainless, regular zinc coated steel casters will be fine as long as they’re not exposed to too much wetness. Storing your application in a garage or warehouse, or covering them another way will also greatly prolong the life of your outdoor casters. Additionally, if you're near the beach, it may be wise to invest in stainless steel casters.
ALL TERRAIN CASTERS FOR THE OUTDOORS
Pneumatic caster wheels are great for grass and gravel. Their off-road-type tread allows them to maneuver easily on golf courses or in green houses.
