HOW LASTING ARE YOUR CASTERS? March 10, 2011 crizlai Sometimes you might ask yourself about the quality of your furniture. You paid a bomb for them and yet you don’t see them last as long as you would have expected. The reason behind this is that most of them are manufactured in mass and they do not really provide you with super quality parts, unless you are willing to purchase those custom-made ones with high soaring prices. Just ask yourself on one scenario. How often do you need to change your furniture casters or perhaps caster brakes? Are they made of high quality that you do not need to worry about them getting spoiled that soon or ever? If I were you, I rather go for the ones with great standard that would get rid of any future stress. There are many great companies out there that produce quality casters in different sizes and shapes, may they be caster brakes, caster wheels, furniture casters or even rigid plate casters. Do find one that would suit your needs. Many people could not differentiate between a caster and a wheel as most of the time they refer it as the same. In fact, there’s a vast differences. A wheel is referred as a round rubber ball like object that would be able to roll whereas a caster is a wheel which is attached to a bracket (caster bracket) where it is able to swivel 360 degrees. Normally, each set would have a lock. I'm thirsty for a drink now. Would you be kind enough to treat me?
