Road Case Casters And Wheels Available At Caster Connection
Blue thermoplastic rubber (TPR) caster wheels are commonly found on road cases. Caster Connection keeps a healthy stock of professionally graded, medium duty blue thermoplastic casters available in 4" or 5" diameters. These blue TPR caster wheels are made up of non-skid material and can be paired with a rigid or swivel fork.
ADDED BENEFITS OF ROADIE CASTERS
Thermoplastic rubber (TPR) caster wheels are a great add-on to road cases for the simple fact that they can roll through cracks of the sidewalks and run into small bumps or other similar obstructions without buckling.
If you're in the roadie business, you know how important it is that the caster wheels of the road cases do not leave behind marks or tear into flooring surfaces when you’re moving through bars, clubs, theaters, hotels or performance venues. Whether you are rolling the road cases on wood, vinyl, concrete, or stone floors, it's in your best interest to transport your valued equipment like a true professional, without ruining floors or wearing down your casters.
REPLACING ROAD CASE CASTERS WITH TOP-TIER CASTERS
Standard road cases typically have a padded interior to cushion the impact of bumps on the road, or from backstage jostling. If you’re looking to soften the impact of bumps and vibrations from reaching the panels of road cases, the CC Apex may be your best bet as a road case caster option. The high quality polyurethane tread of the CC Apex is soft enough to absorb noise-causing vibration during rolling, and is hard enough not to squeak while in motion.
Earlier, it was mentioned that thermoplastic rubber caster wheels are a great add-on to road cases because of how well they can roll through cracks of pavement such as breaks in sidewalks. The CC Apex makes rolling through cracks even easier than TPR wheels do. When a set of CC Apex sit under load, it wants to move. Unlike any other caster wheel on the market, the CC Apex’s tread is made up of a proprietary blend that allows the CC Apex to propel the wheel into movement, lowering push/pull efforts of the user. The CC Apex is also a great caster for rolling over cords, cable protectors, and carpet end caps, with much less force required to climb over them.
