Below you will find references for proper industrial wheel selection based on surfaces used, ease of rolling, load, noise, floor protection and more in the Wheel Selection Chart. The Wheel Capacity Range chart shows wheels by type and capacities and the Guidelines for Selecting Wheel Diameters helps with choosing the correct wheel for general weights. We've also included a Wheel Hardness Comparison Chart that ranks wheel types, tread materials and durometers.
NOTE: This chart is very general in scope. For applications other than normal factory or warehouse conditions, we strongly recommend you contact your RWM representative.
