Hardwood floors require caster wheel types that will not damage the floor, either by marring or marking. Choose selections with thermoplastic rubber (TPR), urethane, neoprene or polyurethane for optimum floor protection. This group of wheels is also highly recommended for laminate, linoleum and tile floor surfaces. When unsure of whether a caster will be used primarily on carpet or hardwood, it is best to choose a softer wheel which will prevent costly damage to hardwood flooring. Also, our valued customers tell us that these casters work great on floors with epoxy coatings, especially the Softech models.
Did you know?You have a choice in selecting the style caster for your chair or other pieces of furniture and light equipment. Stem type and size is the determining factor for replacement regardless of chair manufacturer (think of it like the tires on your vehicle). With this in mind, choose from hooded or non-hooded, single or twin wheel, and metal or nylon body casters.
