A Better Side Locking Brake

Our re-engineered side locking brake (SLB) is now more versatile and more ergonomic. The foot pedal is 30% larger making it more accessible and easier to engage and disengage. When the SLB is in place, it compresses the hub of the yoke, creating friction on the hub of the wheel. Available on our 800 series casters, the side locking brake can now be used on all diameters without any risk of ground contact.

Our 800 Series casters come with a 7/8” tread width and diameters of 2”, 2-1/2” and 3”. They are available with a wide range of wheels including our ProTech™ and Envirothane™, which are hard enough for carpeted floors and soft enough for tiled floors. With a capacity of 125 lbs., the 800 is available as a rigid or swivel caster.

Weighing in at well under a pound, 800 series casters are lightweight and come with a variety of stems and a standard top plate. They are ideal for office furniture, institutional equipment as well as hospital and healthcare applications.

Both the SLB and the 800 series casters are produced in our integrated manufacturing facility in Toronto. That means you get attractive lead times, delivery dates you can depend on and North American quality backed by our 3-year No-Excuse Warranty.

Together, our new side locking brake and 800 series casters, are a powerful, multipurpose mobility combination. Find out how you can put them to use by contacting your local Algood representative or a member of our customer service team.
