EcoformaColson Encore Ecoforma Flat Tread Wheel with capacity to 540 pounds

Ecoforma wheels offer the advantages of both hard and soft tread materials in a single wheel. Like a hard tread wheel, Ecoforma rolls easily and is very durable. Like a soft tread wheel, it rolls quietly, protects floors and resists impacts with a cushion ride. It also features maximum weather-ability, low temperature flexibility, resistance to chemicals, water and steam, and rejects floor debris such as metal shavings. Non-marking thermoplastic elastomer tread is permanently bonded to durable polyolefin wheel core.

Colson Encore Ecoforma Round Tread Wheel with capacity to 200 poundsEcopoly

Industrial strength polyurethane tread bonded to “ribbed” polyolefin core. This design adds strength for loads subjected to shock and hard impacts. Tread is molded in, around and through a ribbed extension of the core to prevent de-bonding. Standard colors are burgundy tread on grey core. This wheel is not recommended for conditions of continuous operation such as tow-line, etc.

Colson Encore Moldon Rubber Wheel on Cast Iron core with capacity up to 400 poundsRubber on Cast Iron Core

Moldon rubber is bonded to the cast iron core. These wheels are quiet in operation and absorb shock and vibration.  They help prolong equipment life and protect cargo.

Colson Encore Glass-filled Nylon wheel with capacity to 1120 poundsGlass-Filled Nylon

Encore Glass-filled Nylon wheels feature an exclusive, ultra tough thermoplastic compound that resists hard impacts and drop-shocks. The wheel is impervious to most chemicals, solvents, salts, gases, alkalines and steam cleaning and does not absorb water. When compared to other hard tread wheels, these Glass-filled Nylon wheels require less force to roll and swivel. It is ideal for many industrial and institutional applications and is NSF listed for the food service industry. The wheel is non-marking.

Colson Encore Moldon Polyurethane Wheel on Cast Iron core with capacity up to 1200 poundsPolyurethane on Cast Iron Core

This strong, ultra-durable wheel has a very high strength-to-weight ratio and is capable of long service under heavy loads. Red polyurethane is bonded to the cast iron core.

Colson Encore Polyolefin Wheel with capacity to 900 poundsPolyolefin

Polyolefin wheels are designed for hard impacts and heavy loads. This wheel is light in weight but offers impact strength far superior to hard rubber wheels. It also provides superior resistance to most oils, chemicals, grease, gasoline, cooking fats and acids. This wheel is stain resistant, non-marking and does not absorb water.

Colson Encore Cast Iron Wheel with capacity up to 1500 poundsCast Iron

This wheel should be specified when excessive load weights are involved and floor protection is not a factor. Cast iron wheels have high strength to withstand sharp impacts. They should not be used if noise is of major concern or if loads are fragile.
