How to Work Out Safe Working Load for your Castors

28 September 2017

Load Capacity are calculated in two methods depend on the anticipated type of load. First establish if the loads are liquid or solid then apply the following:

 

Liquid Loads: If the load consist of liquids our calculation considers that the load can move and could be over just two castors at one time:

 

                                           Weight of Application including Trolley 

Load capacity of castor   =        ----------------------------------------------------------

                                               2

 

Solid Loads: Working to the principle that the application might not be parallel with the ground if the ground surface is uneven then only three castors will be supporting the load.

 

                                            Weight of Application including Trolley 

Load capacity of castor   =        ----------------------------------------------------------

                                            3
