3 Factors to Consider for Choosing the Right Furniture Casters & Wheels, Manhattan, New York

Whether you're furnishing a commercial office or equipping an industrial facility, choosing the right furniture casters or wheels can increase the efficiency of your operations, maximize the use of space, and reduce the risk of injury when moving furniture. Casters, Wheels and Industrial Handling is New York City's leading provider of mobility and storage solutions.

You might think all wheels are alike, but choosing the wrong equipment can lead to wasted resources, broken furnishings, and damaged floors. Consider the following when buying furniture casters:

  • furniture castersWeight Capacity: Making sure that the furniture casters you buy can actually bear the load it will be used for will protect your equipment and flooring from damage and increase productivity. In general, the larger the surface area of the wheel, the greater the load-bearing capacity. However, material density and wheel bearings also play a crucial role.
  • Type of Floor: Not all wheel materials are suited for different types of flooring. For example, bare steel could damage some types of concrete and laminate flooring, leading to expensive repairs later on. If you're not sure what type of caster would be best for your floor, ask one of the experienced staff members at Casters, Wheels and Industrial Handling.
  • Application: Consider the application of the furniture or piece of equipment. Do you expect it to be used for extended periods of time? Will you need swivel casters to increase mobility? Caster manufacturers also offer a variety of brake and lock options, each of which may be suited for different applications. Consider how the casters will be used to ensure you choose the right type and features.
