step 2

SIZE MATTERS – LET’S SEE WHICH WHEEL suits your application

DOMESTIC

THE AVERAGE GATE AT HOME

All the domestic wheels have the 6201 ZZ bearings.
If unsure, always select a larger wheel.
60mm Wheel

Recommended for light-duty single-width residential gate applications where the gate opening does not exceed 3.5 meters. See load tables for comparison.

80mm Wheel –  Best Choice

Recommended for most domestic or light commercial gate applications. See load tables for comparison.

100 Wheel –  Premium Choice

(6201ZZ bearing)

Offers longer life and greater load-carrying capacity due to a greater wheel diameter. Good choice for heavier than normal residential and commercial gate applications. See load tables for comparison.

Residential gate using a pair of series 80 V-Wheels on a Ø16 round track. Gate mass estimated at 250 kg’s

Cluster complex gate using a pair of series 100 HD Radius Profile Wheels. Note low gate clearance provided by Slimline bracket.

HEAVY-DUTY

RESIDENTIAL COMPLEXES & COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS

The Heavy-duty wheels use 6204 ZZ bearings. If unsure, always select a larger wheel.

100 HD Wheel

6204 ZZ bearings with slimline brackets for reduced gate clearance, pet friendly. Recommended for cluster or townhouse complexes or high traffic gate applications.

100 HD-U Wheel

6204 ZZ bearings with sturdy U style bracket. Ideal for commercial, industrial and agricultural applications where gate clearance is not a criterion.

120 HD Wheel

6204 ZZ bearings with slimline brackets for reduced gate clearance, pet friendly. Recommended for cluster or townhouse complexes or high traffic gate applications. Offers longer life and greater load-carrying capacity due to greater wheel diameter.

step 3

SELECT A WHEEL PROFILE

V-WHEEL

V-Wheel on round track

Suitable for all residential and commercial applications.

Provides low rolling resistance combined with good load-carrying capacity.

A round track has a tendency to be self-cleaning making the v-wheel a robust all-rounder.

For best results use a round bright steel track for smooth operation and extended wheel life.

Consult the Load tables for comparison.

RADIUS

Radius Wheel on Round Track.

Suitable for all residential and light commercial applications.

The radius wheel provides low rolling resistance and excellent load-carrying capacity.

For best results use a round bright steel track for smooth operation and extended wheel life.

The round track has a tendency to be self-cleaning making the v-wheel a robust all-rounder.

Enhanced security: The deep groove profile of the radius wheel makes it more difficult to lift the gate off its track.

Consult the Load tables for comparison.

SQUARE

Square Track Wheel

Recommended for high traffic applications.

  • Townhouse or cluster complexes.
  • Office complexes.
  • Mini factory complexes.

 The square track offers the lowest rolling resistance with the highest load-carrying capacity. Consult the Load tables for comparison.

A square track must be well-drained to prevent sit build up.

For best results, large-diameter wheels are recommended for square track wheel applications.
