Workplace Ergonomics & Caster Technology
Heavy duty casters to enhance industrial ergonomicsErgonomics is the study of human abilities, limitations and other characteristics relevant to product design. Its objective is to ensure that workplace stress, fatigue, and injury are minimized and productivity maximized. Long before it became a buzzword, workplace ergonomics was the basis of everything we did and continue to do at Darcor—creating casters that simultaneously achieve three objectives:
- cutting costs
- increasing output
- reducing workplace injuries.
The ergo-friendly caster
LongevityDarcor’s casters provide ERGO LONGEVITY™. ERGO LONGEVITY means our casters will maintain ergonomic mobility performance for the long term. Ergonomic mobility is the rolling resistance and swiveling force of a caster when a load is applied. The lower the force and resistance, the better the performance.
SwivelSwiveling forces are typically the largest mobility force that a cart will experience. Darcor’s casters are specially designed to tackle high swiveling forces by providing ergonomically sound wheels, effective swivel offsets and multi-wheel configurations.
PerformanceHigh performance casters can be the difference between a healthy and unhealthy worker. Darcor’s wheel technology will provide high performance and reduce push/pull forces. This means less chance of injury in the field. Decreasing the risk of injury, translates to lower injury-related costs for the company.
Push/pull forcePush/pull forces are the quantitative measures of the force required to move and sustain a cart’s movement. By reducing these forces, a worker can easily, safely, and efficiently move product.
Wheel and caster technology enhance workplace ergonomics while reducing costs and injuries and increasing output.
Going fork-free can reduce operational costs and injuries that occur from forklift accidents. Choosing an ergonomic caster will make the switch to forklift free environment easier.
