The Eloowheel “Roll under pallet” principle

The Eloowheel “Castors under pallets system” is flexible and easy to use. The graphic below shows that there are only 3 different plates, each of which can be fitted with swivel castors or fixed castors. With the “EW-FML” and “EW-SML” models, it is possible, among other things, to place 2 pallets, which together form a longer pallet, at their “butt joints”. Theoretically, an infinitely long pallet can be made rollable in this way.

EW = ElooWheel, S = Swivel castor, F = Fixed castor, C = Corner of pallet, M = Middle of pallet, L = Long pallet site, N = Narrow pallet site

Whether swivel castors, fixed castors, polyamide castors or transport castors with polyurethane wheels, all castors have a load capacity of 350 kg per wheel. The dimensions of the support shoes refer to wooden Euro pallets and H1 plastic pallets. Many other pallet types are manufactured with similar dimensions and can therefore usually also accommodate Eloowheel castors.

Available roll variants

The Eoowheel system is available with braked swivel castors and fixed castors. Unbraked swivel castors do not make sense due to the flexibility of the system. Imagine that an employee only installs braked swivel castors on his pallets. The next employee may not have a single braked castor available. This would not be an ideal situation and therefore the only correct decision for us would be not to offer unbraked swivel castors in the first place. Safety has priority.

Eloowheel | The “rollers under pallets system”

Eloowheel castors make many pallets rollable

Eloowheel is the solution when it comes to rollable Euro pallets. The transport castors are simply attached to the Euro pallet. No matter how many Euro pallets are connected to each other, really every variant can be quickly made rollable. Eloowheel´s are available as fixed or swivel castors. In addition to the normal wooden Euro pallet, Eloowheel´s can also be mounted on “H1” plastic pallets.

Place wheels where necessary

Eloowheel “castors under pallets” can be fitted individually where it makes sense. The centre Euro pallet shows the maximum number of castors on a standard pallet. The left-hand combination of braked swivel castors and fixed castors is ideal for manoeuvring in very narrow and angled aisles. This castor arrangement allows the pallet to turn on the spot like a pirouette.

A popular combination of Eloorac products

One of the most frequently used applications. 2 interconnected Euro pallets fitted with an Eloorac transport rack and Eloowheel castors. This frame has a length of 2.4 metres. Pallets of this length can often only be moved with difficulty using a normal pallet truck. On the right: Eloowheel with polyurethane-coated castor. Load capacity: 350 kg/wheel.

Safety through stabilising rods

Stabilising bar for Eloowheel “castors under pallets” from Eloorac. The steadystick is purely a safety measure when using Eloowheel castors on pallets that do not have the necessary stability to transport heavy goods safely. The steadystick prevents the pallet runners from “buckling” if they are made of rotten wood and a castor turns outwards.

This video makes the principle of Eloowheel castors even clearer. It not only shows the tool-free assembly of the swivel castors and fixed castors. Above all, the incredible flexibility in terms of pallet length makes the viewer realise that there is hardly a comparable castor system with similar advantages.

In this video, we show how to use the Eloorac lifter to raise a Euro pallet so that Eloowheel castors can be fitted to the pallet. The lifter is a very useful tool that replaces a pallet truck or forklift. The cool thing is that the lifter can be dismantled and can therefore be stored in any assembly vehicle to save space.

Castor mounting with the lift

Lifter correctly inserted to lift the pallet

The lifter works very simply. You drive into the opening of the Euro pallet, which has no base board. By simply pulling down or pushing the lever bar, the 2 lifting parts lift the pallet. The user instructions on the lever bar must always be observed. On uneven terrain, this can move back up to the starting position in an uncontrolled manner. The bar must always be held down by another person.
IMPORTANT: The lifter can be used for pallets with a total weight of max. 600 kg.

Assembly of the lifter for wheel mounting

The lifter was actually only designed because one question was often asked: “What do I do if there is no forklift on site and I have to mount the Eloowheel castors on a loaded Euro pallet?”. The aim was to design a tool that can be dismantled and stowed away to save space. The lifter consists of 2 lifting parts and a lever bar with a split pin. The picture shows the simple assembly. Time required: 10 – 20 seconds.

Eloowheel castors in use

Eloowheel on EPAL pallets

The Eloowheel transport roller system was developed to make Euro pallets or EPAL pallets mobile in places where there are no pallet trucks, forklifts or heavy trolleys. The base plate, to which the castors are attached, is held on pallets by a simple plug-in connection.

Eloowheel on H1 plastic pallets

The Eloowheel base plate offers a wide range of plug-in options. It has been designed not only for wooden Euro pallets, but also for H1 plastic pallets. The Eloowheel transport castor system is therefore even more flexible.

Rollers for Euro pallets and H1 plastic pallets

Rollable Euro pallets for drywall construction

Plasterboard is often in the way on building sites. The reason for this is that they are usually stored horizontally and a pallet truck does not help here. One solution is the stable Eloorac transport frame. If you then add Eloowheel castors under the pallet, you have a very flexible trolley on which you can even store plasterboard upright.

The fact that your employees do not have to walk long distances to the pallet is remarkable. The loaded pallet with our rollers under pallet system is simply pushed a little further and further to the place where the plasterboard is to be processed. Once a room has been completed, the full pallet is simply pushed further into the next room. If you don’t save time and money now, when will you?

Swivel castors & fixed rolls on H1 plastic pallets for bakeries

In very confined spaces, manoeuvring heavy pallets is not always a pleasure. One example is in the bakery: With the Eloowheel variant EW1-2SC-2FML, in which the rolls are placed in the middle of the pallet, it is possible to rotate the pallet on one spot like a pirouette.

Moving heavy loads by rolling under pallets

Eloowheel transport rolls for pallets can be loaded with 350 kg/roll as standard. This allows relatively high loads to be moved. However, it should be borne in mind that the pallet with rolls has to be moved by hand and the condition of the Euro pallet is very important for loading. Broken pallets or defective pallets will break apart relatively quickly under high loads. Rolls with high load-bearing capacity do not help.

5.6 » 5.0 | Rollers on pallets

What else is possible with our pallet rolls?

Space-saving & flexible transport wheels for pallets

The problem in many companies. Trolleys, which are often difficult to move and bulky, take up a lot of storage space when they are not needed. The Eloowheel transport castor under pallet system saves valuable storage space. If you need a rollable pallet, simply place the Eloowheel castors under pallets that need to be mobile. For example, goods that have just been delivered can immediately be pushed into a corner where they won’t get in the way.

Now you say “but we have pallet trucks and forklifts. We can move everything with them”. Valuable time is lost searching for pallet trucks. Our “rollers under pallets system” also fits well into various work processes. If pallets only need to be moved a little at a time, it makes no sense to work with pallet trucks or forklifts. Once the goods have arrived on the rollable pallet at the end of production, they can be pushed from there directly into dispatch.

When loading the Euro pallets, the Eloowheels are then removed from the pallets and placed in a pallet cage. Once the pallet cage is full, it is taken to the start of production so that the rollers can be placed under other pallets.

Flexibility through Eloowheel in trade fair construction

Especially in trade fair construction, too small transport racks are often the subject of complaints. If there are large racks, it is usually not possible to move them. Often the lift trucks are too short or there is not enough space for a forklift truck.

Special pallets can also be made rollable with Eloowheel swivel castors as well as fixed castors. Only the skid widths of the special pallet should be within the dimensional range of the Euro pallet. Normally, this should not be a problem. Most pallets have been made movable with the Eloorac roller system so far.
