Key Advice and Guidance for Products
Throughout the selection of your soft furnishing castors and components, we will work with you to ensure that our products meet all of the criteria for their intended use. Your dedicated account coordinator will take the time to understand your project and recommend any special requirements, considering questions such as:
What is the application for the castor or component?
Certain products are better suited to different applications. For example, our 30mm castor is ideal for reclining armchair products due to its compact size, load capacity and user-friendly brake pedal. By understanding what your castors and components will be used for we will be able to advise you on the best solution for your needs.
How is the castor or component to be fixed to your soft furniture product?
Does your product have any special requirements or is a standard fixing suitable?
We endeavour to make your purchase run as smoothly as possible by asking the right questions, we will run through all of the options with you so that you are confident you are purchasing the correct product.
What load capacity will my castor need to have?
Not all castors are created equal so how much weight does your component need to support? For example, is it for a standard or a high load range? By ensuring you choose a part that’s suited to your requirements you can make sure your mobile furniture will stand the test of time.
What space is available for the castors?
Standard swivel castors are available, or if swivel space is limited then a fixed direction (non-swivel) castor can be supplied on request. Our smaller castors combine low height with a relatively high load capacity.
