Level best? A guide to levelling feet

Key considerations for choosing the right levelling feet.

From pumps, engines, plant and machinery to white goods, a level surface is essential to optimal performance. When products are designed to perform on the flat, levelling feet help reduce stresses and vibration, protect performance and minimise wear. But which levelling feet are right for your application? Here are some key considerations…

Load

Levelling feet can’t keep your product level if they buckle under the weight. That’s why we supply a range of heavy duty levelling feet from 80 to 200 mm diameter, with loads applied from 500 daN (approx. 510kg) to 4,000 daN (approx. 4,079kg). Such heavy duty feet are ideal for applications including engines, industrial machinery, HVAC equipment, pumps and more.

For less weighty demands, our extensive range of light duty feet should be more than robust enough for most applications.

Materials

Our levelling feet find their way into a wide range of environments, from factory floors to food and pharmaceutical production areas.

That’s why we manufacture and supply levelling feet in a similarly wide range of materials. Our oil and water resistant rubber feet have varying degrees of elastomeric hardness. And our stainless or coated steel spindles ensure every part of the feet meet your hygiene, non-marking, non-corrosive requirements.

Combinations

Our levelling feet are available in a huge variety of combinations, so you can easily tailor the load, diameter, coating and foot composition to your specific application.

Need a solution that can secure your application to the floor?

If you need to attach your equipment to the floor, take a look at our extensive range of engine mounts that can ensure nothing moves during operation.

If your floor is uneven, our range of height adjusters can be used in conjunction with our engine mounts to give you the best of all worlds.

No need for levelling?

Not every product is going to face an uneven floor. Sometimes, when a slight tilt won’t affect performance, adding levelling feet and machining threaded footplates can be an engineering step (and cost) too far. So when level isn’t essential, choose end stops as a non-adjustable way of protecting the base of products.
