What are Swivel-EAZ® Wheels and Casters

When it is time to move heavy loads smoothly and easily, maintenance-free and innovative Swivel-EAZ® Wheels and Casters answer the call. These assemblies fit well in an array of settings and industries, offering ease of use, safer operation, and customization according to unique demands.

What Are Swivel-EAZ® Wheels and Casters?

Swivel-EAZ® Wheels are set apart by their independently rotating split tread design — a unique, patented solution that greatly reduces start forces by 35-50% for pushing and pulling. When compared to other caster wheels, Swivel-EAZ® Wheels offer:

  • Greater mobility
  • Increased swivel ability
  • Greater durability
  • Increased load-carrying strength
  • Reduced rolling resistance
  • Maintenance-free.

These wheels are highly customizable to individual needs and can directly retrofit into standard-sized caster rigs.

Swivel-EAZ® PRO Casters have patented designs that deliver the lowest push/pull forces while eliminating the need to align the casters to achieve it. These dynamic changes create the ideal caster for building material handling ergonomic solutions. The Swivel-EAZ® PRO Caster’s unique, patented dual-swivel action pairs with the split-tread design of Swivel-EAZ® Wheels to reduce rolling resistance by 50-70%. They offer free and limitless movement with no maintenance required.

The Swivel-EAZ® PRO Caster is the only caster on the market that offers unrestricted use of swivel casters. This means the casters can independently find their own centerlines and do not need to align with other casters on the unit. This capability opens up unlimited design possibilities. Engineers can account for load and floor load distribution, reducing contact pressure without increasing resistance or damaging casters.

With the Swivel-EAZ® PRO Caster system, you are using the only caster system that achieves push/pull forces below the requirements from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Customer-tested results show support for 2,300-lb loads with just 33 lbs of starting force.

Important Parts, Designs, and Assembly

The Swivel-EAZ® designs have two important features:

  • Patented independent split treads for wheels: Most other wheels wear on the centerline tread, so they become harder to move. Independent treads eliminate the problem, completely removing the centerline and its scrubbing effects.
  • A patented 3-axis system for casters: Our 3-axis system delivers unparalleled ease of motion and push/pull capabilities.

With retrofitting capabilities on wheels and unlimited design options for load distribution, Swivel-EAZ® solutions are highly versatile. They can be used to improve performance on existing caster rigs or support all-new designs. Superior capacity options can support loads from 500-30,000 lbs, with Swivel-EAZ® Wheels supporting twice the load of standard wheels with similar tread hardness.

Casters come in durable, maintenance-free stainless steel materials, and wheels and casters are fully made in the USA.
