Chair Casters, Office Chair Casters & Furniture Casters with Soft Wheels

Casters with soft wheels work on hard floors and some work well on carpet. There are 2 main types of soft wheels for chairs and furniture. Wheels made with a soft polyurethane and those made with rubber. The softer the wheel, the kinder it will be to your floors. For softer floors, like pine and other soft materials like cork, only the softest wheels should be used. Casters with polyurethane wheels will work fine on carpet and should be used if you have a combination of flooring like carpet and tile or wood. Casters with soft wheels usually have a lower capacity per caster than the same size caster with a nylon wheel. Normally, when determining the needed capacity, you would multiply the individual capacity of the caster times the number of casters that you are using. This holds true for everything except a chair. Use approximately 3/4 of the capacity of the caster times the number of casters to figure the capacity for a chair. Soft rubber wheels can develop a flat spot from the continuous weight of a heavy item. Increase the capacity of the casters or increase the number of casters until their total capacity is twice that of the item that you are installing them on.
