  • furniture casterWheel Material: Hardwood floors need to be protected from damages such as scratches, marks, and other signs of wear and tear. To maintain the condition of your property, choose wheels made from Thermoplastic Urethane or Thermoplastic rubber. These types of wheel materials are less likely to damage your floors.
  • Capacity: Consider the weight capacity you will need to hold. To find the best fit, start by weighing the unit. Then, multiply the capacity of your desired caster by the number of casters you plan to attach. If the unit weighs more than that number, you will need to search for a caster with a higher capacity.
  • Movement: In addition to capacity, consider how the unit will need move as well. Do you require all swivel casters (rotate 360 degrees), rigid casters (stay fixed) or both?
