3 Benefits of Putting Casters on Your Furniture, Manhattan, New York

Rearranging your office furniture can be time-consuming and potentially dangerous, especially if you have especially heavy pieces or large cabinets. Unless your furniture is on wheels, you may have to resort to planning around these obstacles or risking the health of employees tasked with moving them. Adding furniture casters to your desks, filing cabinets, and conference tables can quickly eliminate these problems, giving your workspace complete adaptability.

Why You Should Install Furniture Casters

1. Preserving Your Floors

Marks in the floor may give your office a run-down and poorly maintained look, which can alter the perception of your entire company. Furniture casters dramatically reduce the risk of leaving permanent marks on your flooring and keep your office looking professional.

2. Preventing Injuries

Even young, relatively strong workers can easily hurt themselves moving heavy furniture — injuries for which you may be held financially responsible. Furniture casters help your employees avoid potentially serious back injuries and the worker’s compensation claims and lost productivity they often bring.

3. Giving You Flexibility

Many offices, especially smaller companies, need to reconfigure their rooms to make the most of limited space. Furniture casters provide the flexibility to quickly and easily group employees working on the same project together, make space for company meetings, or make accommodations for worker preferences.
