Hickory Hardware Introduces Faultless Caster's Reinforced Thermoplastic Wheel

Original "RT" design combines performance, durability and cost-effectiveness

(Portland, Tennessee, USA: October 31, 2006) Hickory Hardware(TM) (, America's leading designer, manufacturer and marketer of decorative, functional and industrial hardware, introduces the Faultless® Caster Reinforced Thermoplastic (RT) wheel, designed for use in Faultless 400, 800 and 1400 standard and stainless steel caster series. The RT wheel, an industry-first design, combines high performance, durability and cost-effectiveness, three critical factors in today's demanding industrial applications.

Resistant to water, chemical absorption, and steam cleaning, RT wheels are ideally suited for food processing, tool storage, sanitary maintenance, warehousing, and other applications that require durability and easy mobility under heavy loads. With a durometer rating of 65D, these wheels can bear load capacities of 600 to 1,400 lbs. and withstand significantly more impact than phenolic wheels.

The RT wheel's unique waffle design of specially blended, reinforced thermoplastic materials allows standard operating temperatures ranging from -20 to +250 degrees F. A high-temperature version that can operate in temperatures up to +480 degrees F is also available.

RT wheels are available from Hickory Hardware in a range of configurations and sizes, as blanks, with delrin bushings, with roller bearings, and with sealed precision radial ball bearings.
