Aircraft, Aviation and Aerospace Casters

Modern Suspension Systems was created initially to provide casters for the Aerospace Industry. There was a clear need for heavy duty, shock absorbing casters that  were corrosion resistant and can withstand the elements, as well as the heavy weights and harsh environments found at airports and aircraft manufacturing facilities. Modern Suspension Systems has earned a great reputation as a leader in the Aviation Ground Support and Aircraft Maintenance caster markets. Most major airlines, aircraft manufacturers and ground support service providers choose Modern Casters because of the Vari-Flex design and the  COMPLETELY INDEPENDENT SUSPENSION  on the dual-wheel series (see diagram below).

Modern Casters Independent Suspension

Modern Casters offer fully Independent Suspension, reducing impact of shock and keeping the surface above the top plate level.

Each wheel is on its own separate axle with separate legs, its like having two separate casters on one top plate. This is extremely beneficial because it helps to keep both wheels on the ground and the cart or dolly level, even when the ground is not, or an obstruction is encountered. It also helps avoid excessive stress on just one wheel, reducing the risk of failure and potential injuries.

We offer a completely aluminum line of casters that are ideal for outdoor applications, aluminum weighs less and is non-corrosive to withstand the elements. Our heavy duty shock absorbing aluminum casters have a 6,500 lbs maximum capacity per caster, while our extremely rugged and durable steel line of casters, offers a maximum capacity of 25,000 lbs per caster.
