Properties of furniture casters

Read more


Furniture casters are used in living rooms as well as in offices. They must meet different requirements depending on where they are used. These depend on the type of floor on which the casters are used, for example, and on the loads that have to be carried. Another factor is how often and in which directions the furniture will need to be moved. Chairs that move in all directions and only have to carry one person's weight are equipped with different casters than mobile bookshelves. Bookcases and shelving tend to run only in straight lines, but sometimes have to carry hundreds of books.

For furniture, swivel casters with a brake or wheel lock are primarily used. These have the advantage of being both easy to maneuver and easy to brake or lock. On hard floors – such as parquet or tiles – casters with a soft tread should be used. These are gentle to floor surfaces. With softer floors like carpets, harder tread material needs to be used.

 

Besides their functionality, visual impact also plays an important role in furniture castors. The castors should match the furniture and the interior design. For this reason, a wide range of classic, modern, elegant and playful designs is available in this segment.

 

 

TENTE furniture castors combine function and design

TENTE furniture casters meet all the requirements placed on them. The swivel casters are equipped with a load-dependent brake, deadman - safety - brake or wheel brake. This enables safe maneuvering and a firm stand when stationary. If even higher loads need to be transported on a permanent basis, casters can be supplied in various sizes and with capacities of up to 100 kg per caster. We have many different designs – including for children. Several TENTE wheels have been awarded design prizes such as the Red Dot Design Award or the universal design award.
