While other contact brakes require you to push up to release, Hamilton Caster’s (Hamilton, OH) premium ergonomic brake’s unique, “wing-like” design allows users to push down to engage and disengage the brake. The design reduces stress on the back and affords more powerful actuation (you’ve got gravity and body weight on your side when you’re pushing down).
The new brake is also highly compact, with a tighter envelope that minimizes trip hazards and maximizes safety. Its precision machined solid steel housing makes it extra durable and able to accept a heavy duty spring-loaded machined steel plunger. Additionally, Hamilton has handpicked its best-performing ergonomic casters and matched them up with the new ergo brake in one convenient product line—available on the standard ergonomic caster series, as well as the premium Ergo-X2 Swivel Casters. Custom pairings are also available.
