Casters are all around us and used in our daily lives to make it easier to move heavy or bulky objects. They can be found in a warehouse on rolling warehouse ladders and carts. They can be found in the office on chairs, cabinets and office machines. They are in workshops on tool chests and in our homes on dressers, dining room chairs and kitchen carts.
If you don't already know, there are three caster wheel mounting methods: stem casters, bold-hole casters and plate casters. Stem casters have a rod that may or may not be threaded. Threaded studs may be screwed into a t-nut while unthreaded studs are inserted into a pilot hole or caster socket and have a ring or grip neck to hold it in place.
When selecting a caster, several factors should be considered: load requirements, wheel hardness and mounting method, as well as any special application requirements. Light duty casters with a friction ring grip are ideal for display and store fixtures, furniture, medical and office equipment, mop buckets and rolling ladders, just to name a few. At AccessCasters.com we carry a comprehensive selection of Friction Grip Ring Stem Casters. Whether your specific need requires a 2”, 3” or 4” stem caster, we’ve got the caster you’re looking for!
