Leading Furniture Manufacturer - Footmaster Castors

03 July 2012

“To maximise efficiency and productivity, we choose Action Handling” All our Wheels/Castors are designed to comply with Health & Safety standard regulations

Having decided to improve efficiency and general operations at their UK headquarters, a leading Furniture Manufacturer sought the services of Action Handling.

The first point to address, as stipulated by the client, was the reliability and competence of wheels/castors used on all products and back-office equipment.  Standard Castors already in place were generally found to be temperamental with a short lifespan and would often need replacing even within the first 6 months of usage.  Clearly, the day-to-day operation onsite was one that would justify the expenditure for a premium model.  Action Handling went on to recommend the Footmaster Castor, which was met with such a positive review that the client ordered 600 units for immediate use.

The specialised Castor has distinct advantages over normal braked castors; mainly its Total-Stop mechanism and an aesthetically pleasing finish.  The client has also commented on how the new Castors enhance the overall appeal of their products, as quoted from recent customers.

  • Unique – it’s a castor and a total-stop brake.
  • Multifunctional castors with 360° swivel function and complete immobilisation for 100% stability to the load, even on uneven floors.
  • Ideal for use on scientific equipment, electronics, computers, test benches, telecommunication racks etc.
  • Sensational comprehensive range of light medium and heavy duty castors with easy to operate vertical lowering foot pad to allow complete immobilisation and levelling in situ.
  • This unique Castor enables all types of equipment to be either fully mobile or rigidly located with the non-slip foot in the lowered position.
