This line of casters, with thread guards installed as standard equipment, provides improved availability for textile industry users requiring 2" face wheels. The thread guards are metal or plastic discs fixed in place between the spanner bushing and caster leg to prevent loose threads from being wound around the axle. Zinc plating is the standard finish for the caster rigs and other hardware. Lube-type axles with drilled spanner bushings for re-lubrication are furnished on all models, because threadguards block access to fittings in the wheel hub.
