The Meaning of Chair Casters

Office Chair Casters

Office Chair Casters

 

Chair Casters, Types of Chair Casters of the wheels material are two major, some people may not be aware. To selecting the correct Chair Casters of the wheels material depends upon type of floor. On tile floors used softer compound Chair Casters of the wheels and on carpets used harder chair casters of the wheels. The Chair Casters material should be the opposite of the flooring material. Hard Chair Casters of the wheels for soft floors and soft Chair Casters of the wheels for hard floors. The softer Chair Casters of the wheels are best for hard tile floors, the harder Chair Casters of the wheels tend to roll a bit easer over carpet. We are seeing numerous tile floors which are being damaged by using the hard Chair Casters of the  wheels on the hard tile floors but we have not seen any damage to carpet caused by using soft Chair Casters of the wheels.

Generally be divided into 4 categories of different chair casters available:

For on hard floors using small diameter single wheel ( about 1 ½ in ) soft Chair Casters.

For carpeted floors using medium diameter dual wheel ( about 2 in ) hard plastic Chair Casters

For tile floors using medium diameter dual wheel ( about 2 in ) soft urethane coated Chair Casters.

For soft and hard floors using large diameter dual wheel ( about 2 ½ in ) soft urethane coated Chair Casters.

A white powdery material on the Chair Casters and you shoes etc right where your chair sits, when using the wrong Chair Casters. You will see a noticeable deterioration of the tile and in extreme cases one can actually see wear pattern of chair if the improper casters have been used for an extended period. Wheels soft and hard often appear the same, for tile the wheel designed have a thin soft rubber tread. From a distance it is impossible to tell one from the other.

You take the time to specify which type of surface you wish to operate it on, when you are ordering a new chair ensure. The hard wheels are usually used because a large number of offices and industry are carpeted. If you already have chair, what can you do? You can have replacing the casters if you are seeing sign of white powdery dust.

For almost every chair are available proper casters. You may have your purchasing representatives purchase them from your local furniture dealer. If you are not sure which type to buy we would highly recommend that you purchase the softer ones designed for tile floors so your chair does not irreparably damage the tiles. Usually when using softer Chair Casters of the wheels on carpet that any damage to carpets.
