All of DAC Industries’ “Stealth” cantilever rollers are made with a hot rolled steel chassis. The chassis is formed, welded, and then hot dip galvanized after fabrication to prevent rust. We chose to make the chassis out of pressed steel rather than a casting to allow you to weld it to the post if you desire. The support gussets are strategically placed to allow easier access to the nuts for faster and easier installation and removal.
Our premium graphite impregnated nylon rollers are cast and then machined to their final shape eliminating any rough surfaces that may cause friction. Far superior to the old metal casting type, these rollers will allow a cantilever gate to glide effortlessly.
All of our rollers use permanently lubricated sealed bearings. The bearings are not molded into the rollers, but are press fit. If a bearing should ever need replacing it can be easily removed and a new bearing installed. This maintenance feature addresses the most common cause of roller failure.
A nylon embedded steel lock nut holds the roller onto the chassis. This gives a more secure mounting than cotter pins or snap rings.
Don’t be fooled by inexpensive imported rollers coming into the market. Our “Stealth” cantilever rollers are quality, American-made products that will not need to be replaced within a year or two of installation.
