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.
