The online price for the soft tread version of the standard office chair castor has been slashed from £2.65 to £2.06 each. this will be for a limited period only as there could be a shortfall in supply of the standard wheel item.

Standard Office Chair Castor Incorporating Soft Tread Tyre 50mm

Now the weather has turned and with the cricket season  about to start,Also with the glory of the England cricket team winning the Ashes series, here at castors-online we start to think about the castors that are bought by our sports club clients. The spring time is always very seasonal for Pneumatic castors used by sport and cricket clubs all over the country, as they all begin to repair and replace the wheels that they have fitted to the Sight Screens and Wicket Covers. Most of the amature and county cricket clubs will only fit to the sight screens and wicket covers  castors that are fitted with pneumatic wheels, there is an obvious need to protect the playing surface and although they can require routine maintenance with the tyres requiring regular re inflation to ensure that the pressure remains evenly spread, this disadvantage is far out weighed by the pitch friendly tyre. Here at castors-online we supply the quality solution with our pneumatic range of castors,  code ref 143499 (swivel) and 143500 (fixed). They are fitted with 260mm diameter pneumatic tyres with steel roller  bearing centres, they have an effective height of 295mm and will carry a load of 200kg per castor. Take a look at the Pneumatic castors on our site.

Castors-online have added to the massive  range of furniture castors. The range has been extended and now covers the standard office chair fitting for both the general purpose wheel code reference TW5006D11x22, as well as the the soft tread version (TW5006D11x22ST)  which has the advantage of being fitted with a  soft rubber tread, this would normally be fitted when the chair is primarily used on a laminate or tile floor, for instance conservatories or modern office flooring when ceramic and polished woods are used. The fitting which is shown in the online store www.castors-online.co.uk is a standard bayonet fitting which is 11mm in the diameter of the pin which plugs in to the 5 leg star base used on most office chairs. There is a 10mm version which can be ordered but this is only available by calling the sales lines 0161 273 2626. The reason that this has been left off the online store is quite simple, when two bayonet fittings are offered one of 10mm and one of 11mm it may be thought to be logical that the 10mm is standard when in fact around 90% of the office chairs supplied in the UK are fitted with 11mm bayonet fitting on the castor. the decision therefore was made to only offer the standard 11mm fitting so as to avoid needless order returns and replacements and when a 10mm pin is required our sales advisers will ensure that this is what is required and perhaps prompt the customer to measure the unit more accurately than may have been the case at first.

There is a complete range also of the plastic twin wheel furniture castors in both 40mm and 50mm with a range of fittings. the fittings which are available are square 4 screw plate and m10x15mm threaded pin as well as m8x15 threaded pins. Bulk buy rates have just been applied and huge savings can be achieved for buying the box quantity shown.
