In general, you can typically break down castor types into light-duty, medium-duty, and heavy-duty varieties. It is important to keep in mind the loading capacity for a castor you are mounting on equipment. Overloaded Castors will not perform well, they will get damaged very quickly, and they may cause the castors to fail when used excessively.
In short, castors are wheeled furniture fittings that have a central housing or frame, onto which the wheel is attached. This central housing usually contains a brake mechanism, which can be used to lock the wheel in place and prevent it from rolling. Castors are often used on chairs, sofas and other pieces of furniture that need to be moved around regularly.
Wheels, on the other hand, are simply standalone wheels that can be attached to furniture without the need for a central frame or housing. They don’t usually have brakes, so they can’t be locked in place. Wheels are often used on pieces of furniture that don’t need to be moved around very often, or that are too heavy
When choosing a castor, it's often said that the larger the wheel, the better. A castor with a larger wheel will roll more easily over bumps and uneven surfaces, as well as handle more weight. However, there are some things you should keep in mind when using large castors. For example, their higher centre of gravity may make them more likely to tip over if you don't use them properly.
