Prevent physical strain in the waste industryObtain user comfort with the right wheel solution
Reduce hard work
A lot of waste containers are used in the waste industry, and they have to be emptied regularly. This involves a considerable amount of manual work, as employees in the waste industry must move these containers themselves. This might not seem such a problem, until employees need to move dozens of waste containers a day. Therefore, using a waste container should be as convenient as possible.
Added convenience, longer lifespan
The right wheel selection contributes to the reduction of physical strain and is, in addition, essential for the lifespan of the waste containers. Waste containers are usually standing outside and are therefore subject to all weather conditions. The faster the wheel deteriorates, the harder it is to move the container. This increases the workload for employees even further, and it leads to higher maintenance costs and injury risks. As a lot of companies are not aware of the added value of the right wheel solution, they often opt for the cheapest one. This might seem logical, but is it the right choice? We developed the wheel solution that not only reduces physical strain, but also extends the lifespan of the wheels!
In order to develop the right wheel solution, we formulated the following success factors:
- Low rolling resistance
- Low starting resistance
- High elasticity
- Right brake mechanism
- Suitable for outdoor use
- Optimal resistance to all weather conditions
The wheel solution that offers relief
We use a swivel castor that consists of a swivel fork of which the ball raceway is fitted with a sealing ring. The ball raceway is also supported by a sealing ring at the bottom and these offer protection bearings against all weather influences. For added protection against the elements, the double quality bearings and ball bearings are fitted with protective bearing caps.
In addition, the wheel has a unique, especially developed rubber compound that increases user comfort through elasticity, damping and rolling resistance. The swivel fork has a double-action brake which is also comfortable to use.
Following years of testing, comparing and cooperating with various laboratories, we finally found the wheel solution of which the added value is also recognised by the Dutch Ministry of Social Affairs and Employment. We now only use these Arbowielen to increase the lifespan of waste containers and - also an important result - to make the work of employees considerably lighter!
