Swivel chairs: find suitable castors

Read more

The swivel chair is the classic choice for the office or home office. It allows a comfortable sitting position and is practical, as you can quickly roll in any direction. This makes it possible to carry out a wide variety of work steps without having to stand up. In order to maintain this flexibility and mobility in the long term, the swivel chair must be equipped with good castors that can withstand the loads, are easy to steer and are gentle to floors.

Other applications for a swivel chair

Swivel chairs are not used exclusively in the office. Children often do their homework sitting on a swivel chair at their desk at home. Ergonomic swivel chairs are highly recommended, especially at an early age, for promoting good sitting posture. Swivel chairs can also be found in many medical practices and hospitals. Doctors can quickly glide from the desk to the patient or to the medicine cabinet. This speeds up procedures and relieves the strain on the doctor.

Requirements for swivel chair castors

Swivel chair castors must be adapted primarily to the particular floor conditions. This means that: Harder floors need softer castors, and softer floors need harder castors. The wrong castor can cause damage. Hard castors leave marks and scratches on hard floors. Soft castors on soft floors like carpet can attract lint, which permanently impairs the manoeuvrability of the castors.

TENTE swivel chair castors for harder floors have a tread made of innovative Supratech, a thermoplastic rubber. This is gentle to the floor, runs very easily and does not leave any marks. A load-dependent wheel brake provides extra safety for the castors, if required. The brake prevents the chair from rolling away inadvertently.
