What some customers don’t understand is that most of our products are made to order. The casters are assembled on an order by order basis. They are not sitting on a shelf in the warehouse assembled.

Caster & Wheel Questions

Caster rule of thumb: use a hard wheel on carpet and a soft wheel on hard floor surfaces. Wheels like Polyurethane, Polyolefin or Nylon will work well on carpet.
Caster rule of thumb: use a hard wheel on carpet and a soft wheel on hard floor surfaces. Wheels like Polyurethane or Rubber will work best on hardwood floors. Rubber is the best, however, if you must also roll over carpet, then we recommend polyurethane which is compatible with both.
Caster rule of thumb: The larger the wheel diameter, the easier it rolls. Choose the largest wheel diameter for your application. If size doesn’t matter, choose a large wheel.
Caster Wheels that are left in the same place for long periods of time with heavy weights may develope a flat spot depending on the wheel material. The harder the wheel material the less likely it is to go flat. Very hard wheels like Phenolic or Steel are recommended for heavy storage applications. When designing your application, choose a caster where the entire weight of the application can be supported by one caster. By doing this, each caster is only “working” at 25% of it’s capacity and flat spots due to storage will most likely be avoided.
Our Total Locking Casters are excellent for this application. They lock both the swivel and the wheel. We also recommend these casters for woodworking tools such as table saws, radial arm saws, drill presses, etc.
Our “Capacity” specifications are for a single caster or wheel. If you are using 4 casters, the total capacity would be 4 times our stated capacity. Example: A chair caster with a maximum capacity of 80 lbs would have a maximum capacity of 400 lbs if 5 were used on a chair.
