If you need to increase the mobility of your shelving system, trust Metro to provide the right products for you.

Metro Offers a Variety of Caster Options to Suit Different Mobile Conditions and Environments

Stem casters are the most popular option because they are easy to configure, cost-effective, and address most mobility needs. They are most often used to create standard carts, movable storage racks for cleaning, and flexible storage layouts that will be regularly reconfigured. Most Metro stem casters have non-marking treads and are available in swivel, swivel with brake, and rigid versions for long-distance use. Stem casters manage weight loans ranging from 450 lbs to 900 lbs per cart. A variety of materials are available for these common applications:

  • Walk-in cooler and freezer storage

  • Dry storage

  • Material handling carts

  • Hospital supply rooms and sterile processing departments

  • Environmental chambers

  • ESD conductive applications

  • Cleanrooms

  • Autoclave and cart wash chamber conditions

  • Mobile workstations

Plate casters have heavy-duty construction with a larger wheel chassis and wider wheels for mounting to Metro dolly truck bases. These dolly trucks can handle more abusive and rugged mobile conditions, including cross-campus transport, back-and-forth travel on elevators and loading docks, and over-the-road delivery on trucks. These carts are super heavy-duty and can safely move up to 1000 lbs of supplies. Several styles are available to address:

  • General dry environments

  • Cart wash chambers

  • Rough or unpaved surfaces
