Our PolyCam Brake was created a number of years ago with our customers in mind. Back then, our product development and engineering teams invested the time and research needed to develop a highly effective, very versatile and long-lasting brake. Today, this is one of our bestsellers and might just be the best-designed brake of its kind on the market.
With an embedded cam, the polyurethane cylinder applies directional pressure to the metal activator causing it to make absolutely positive contact with the wheel. That creates an absolute lock. At durometer of 60D, the polyurethane is hard enough to effectively exert force against the activator but has the give and memory to return its original shape. To more easily accommodate varying wheel tread sizes, we incorporated a modular design into the polyurethane applicator. By using 1” and ½” segments, we are better able to your meet specific wheel specs.
To make the PolyCam more user friendly, the brake pedal is accessibly located in front of the wheel with a wide contact area to allow for ease of use.
The PolyCam brake can be used on wheel treads of 2”, 3″ and 4″ and is particularly well suited to dual wheel casters. It is ideal for our heavy duty kingpinless casters like the Monsoon™ and the Cyclone™. It is also available in stainless steel with our Tornado9™ and the Typhoon9™ high-capacity casters.
Produced in our fully integrated North American manufacturing facility, the brake is molded, plated and then welded to the caster. That on-shore production means you can get reasonable lead times with delivery dates you can depend on.
If you’re looking for a truly effective cam-do brake option for heavy duty casters, we have one designed with you in mind.
