Colson Caster Corporation, the world’s leading manufacturer of standard and custom application caster and wheel products, has added a new brake option to its low-cost ‘Encore’ Dolly Caster line. Requested by Colson customers, the Total Lock Brake is now available on all of Colson’s Encore Dolly line swivel casters.

“The requests to expand our Encore Dolly line started almost as soon as we introduced the line’s swivel caster last year,” said Brian Crain, product manager for Colson. “The products are the best-for-the-price when quality, durability, and performance still matter.”

Crafted to move dollies, food service carts, and stock carts easily and silently, the Total Lock Brake provides an additional option for today’s demanding applications. The new Total Lock Brake is formed with a durable zinc-plated finish, and locks both the wheel and swivel simultaneously when easily engaged by foot action. The series’ easy-rolling and non-marking grey TPR wheel is fitted with a unique plastic thread guard that also serves as an integrated spanner bushing. All models have a 1 ¼” tread width and are available in 3”, 3 1/2”, 4” and 5” wheel diameters with load capacities tested from 180 to 260 pounds.

Colson has been in business for more than 125 years, and today manufactures and globally markets more than 35,000 fully-tested caster and wheel products. All of the new line additions are available now for immediate shipment.
