When you’re working with almost any kind of table, it’s best to have a way to keep it level so that the items on the table don’t move around. Leveling casters can be used to raise one side if it’s lower or to ensure that the entire table is the same height. The casters can also make it easier to move the table from one area to another.
There is usually a braking system on the casters so that you can keep the table in one place. Casters come in various sizes, allowing you to add them to small or large tables. They turn around corners so that you don’t have to worry about planning a straight route in the building. This can make it easier to move a table in an area that is compact. They are easy to install and remove if they are no longer needed.
The casters will roll smoothly along concrete and other hard surfaces. They can sometimes roll across carpet if it’s flat. There is a thumbwheel on the casters so that you can lower them, making the table sit closer to the ground while still being able to easily maneuver it on the floor. One of the reasons to use casters is if you have heavy equipment that you aren’t able to carry. They are a cost effective way to create a movable table without purchasing a table that has wheels as all you need to buy are the casters. Most casters are made with aluminum so that they are sturdy and will last for a longer period of time. The ivory finish of the wheels is easy to blend with other equipment in the building and will make a nice addition to the table as it’s a neutral color instead of something that stands out. Most casters can hold weights up to 250 pounds. If you have something heavier than this on the table, you might want to consider adding two wheels together instead of just one. This will give an added support that can help keep the table from buckling.
