Hardwood Floor Casters with Soft Wheels for Chairs and Furniture

Hardwood Floor Casters with Soft Wheels can get "traction" on a hard surface. Just like the rubber tires on your car, caster wheels will have some sort of soft material applied to a wheel. When a wheel is rolling on a hard floor, it can not scratch the floor. Hard floors can get damaged even with soft wheels. If the floors are dirty and grit or sand becomes embedded into the tire, it can scratch the floor. If the wood used on the floor is soft, it is possible that the wheel could "dent" the wood. We will not "recommend" any type of caster for a wood floor. We can tell you that the "softest wheel" will work the best. A good rule of thumb is that if you have a wood floor, find out what the Janka Rating is for the floor. If the Janka rating is higher than 1290 ( the hardness of solid Red Oak ), you should be able to use wheels with soft polyurethane wheels. If it is softer than that, you must use a soft rubber.
