3 Industries That Benefit From Casters, Manhattan, New York

Composed of a sturdy wheel and mounting mechanism, casters are attached to a variety of objects to make them mobile. With the ability to make important tools even more useful, it's not a surprise that they've become a staple tool across many industries. Here is a look at the three of the most popular uses for casters in various fields. 

3 Industries That Use Casters

1. Medical

Quick and easy movement is vital in the healthcare industry, which is why lockable wheels are a standard component of medical equipment. Light-duty casters are utilized for equipment that needs to be moved frequently, like IV stands and cafeteria food carts. Heavy-duty casters, on the other hand, are used for hospital beds. With their higher weight limit and durable design, the wheel attachments make patient both safe and convenient. 

2. Furniture

castersFrom cleaning to rearranging, residential furniture is moved on a regular basis. Yet, attempting to slide a couch or bookcase runs the risk of injury to the mover as well as damage to the item and the floor. To combat these issues, both manufacturers and individuals add furniture casters to the bottom of furnishings in place of traditional stationary legs. This change also makes the items more accessible for individuals with limited physical capabilities. 

3. Entertainment

Whether for theater, concerts, or video production, organization and ease of access is key to a successful performance. That is why many types of backstage equipment are fitted with casters. For example, camera carts allow you to both store and easily transport cameras between scenes. The same sentiment applies to utility carts, which can house everything from props to microphones.
