V-Groove Wheels and Track
V-Groove wheels are designed to guide equipment by rolling on inverted angle track. Elevated track minimizes problems caused by floor debris. The relief groove at the base of the "V" equalizes the load on each face of the angle. V-Groove Wheels minimize wear of the V-groove sides and are best for frequent operation. When not operating on track, the considerable wheel tread on each side of the V-groove allows for use on smooth floors. It is important that if more than one track is used they are parallel, straight and level. Otherwise V-groove wheels may bind or run up over the track. It is desirable when loads are great to use tapered bearings, which have thrust as well as radial capacity. The proper adjustment of tapered bearings prohibits end play.
Compression must be applied to properly seat tapered bearings. This is achieved by tightening down against a bearing spacer on each side of the wheel to a maximum looseness of .010. Since tapered bearings prohibit end play, their use requires parallel track. Unless the layout is nearly perfect, it is best to use a single angle iron track for V-groove wheels parallel to an elevated flat bed for wheels without a V-groove.
Solid Stainless wheels are standard with Stainless Roller Bearings and Spanner Bushings.

It is a floor mounted track with the ability to be installed on a variety of different surfaces. The low profile design and the tapered sides eliminates tripping hazards and makes it easy for V-groove wheels and other equipment to be moved in and out of the aisle. The installation of the tracks is very easy with minimal anchoring. The V-groove track is ADA compliant and is available with our built-in In-Track Anti-Tip safety feature. All tracks are ADA compliant unless otherwise stated. All tracks are cut to specific lengths based on the project. Pipp carriages require a track under each shelving upright.
