Our very wide selection of clamps and scaffolding tubes, even in theatre black, will allow you to create any number of constructions, whether it is for a tower, scenery, rigs, or use on stage.

Castors, Turntables and Rollers
Our range of industrial light-duty castors all have pressed steel top plates with plain bearings. Wheels are polypropylene, or a quiet non-marking rubber tyre on plastic with a steel core. The Swivel Bolt-hole and Swivel Braked Bolt-hole castors have either a 10 mm or 12 mm bolt-hole. Our range of medium to heavy-duty industrial castors all have pressed steel top plates. The wheels are either nylon with plain bearings, or a tough polyurethane [PU] tyre on cast iron with ball bearings.
When braked castors are not feasible we have a selection of separate brake units. For light trucks, a door stop with a rubber foot or even a rubber door wedge will often suffice. If positioning is crucial [and you can drill into the stage floor] then drop bolts work well. For heavier duty applications we have a range of purpose built truck brakes, for example the ever-popular range from Triple E or even a system to turn truss structures into theatre trucks.
