Which casters will work for my office environment? The best way to determine which casters will work best for your office environment is to first determine your chair's primary use and what surface your chair will be rolling on. Do you have a higher work station? Do you have floors you do not want damaged if rolling around? Do you switch between sitting and standing while you work? Do you need your chair to remain stationary during certain parts of the day and mobile during others? By answering these questions and reading the aforementioned, you will be on your way towards determining which type of wheels will work best for your office chair.
What options are available if you do not want your chair to move at all? While most typically picture an office chair with wheels, there are also other options available for those that would like to keep their chairs stationary. Glides can be inserted into a chair's base instead of rolling casters, which are essentially rubber pegs that prevent the chair from moving. This can be especially beneficial for those that work at higher work stations or sit stand work stations where a moving chair can become a safety hazard.
What type of wheels come standard on most office chairs? Just about every office chair will come standard with carpet casters, a harder plastic caster that is designed specifically for rolling on top of carpeted surfaces. This is due to the fact that the vast majority of office chairs are used in carpeted areas and also because they are among the cheapest options for manufacturers to produce. Their hard plastic covering makes them an ideal choice to move over most types of carpet, particularly low pile carpet that can often be found in many office environments. Use them on any other surface, and you may find your floor getting scratched or your chair not rolling as effectively.
