CC APEX & BLICKLE IDEAL-STOP
You’ve already read about the awesome attributes of the CC Apex wheel by itself, but what about the other huge component of a caster: the rig?
The ideal-stop brake does not rotate because it is attached to the rig’s top plate, (in contrast to standard brakes which are attached to the rig’s forks) meaning that the ideal-stop brake cannot rotate into an unreachable position.
Most braking systems swivel with the wheel, so when the wheel is positioned under the frame of the cart, so is the brake. The team member will then need to re-position the entire dolly to activate the brake and secure the dolly, requiring awkward and potentially injury-causing movements.
In contrast, the ideal-stop brake stays in the same position even as the caster swivels. This allows engineers to position the brake in the exact position that will make it easy to engage when the dolly is moved into the desired position. This saves time, energy and reduces the risk of injury dramatically.
The CC Apex is the most ergonomic wheel of it’s kind, and when combined with a caster featuring the ideal-stop brake, your carts achieve superior maneuverability, protection of products, and protection of workers.
