CLASSIC RATTAN CASTER CHAIR OPTIONS EXPLAINED
PLASTIC CASTERS are used on carpet flooring because carpet fibers are less likely to become imbedded into the caster. Over time, however, some fibers will become imbedded but they can be removed by carefully unwinding them. This type of caster is made with a black hood.
RUBBER CASTERS are used on tile and hard wood flooring. The rubber provides a more stable movement of the chair. This type of caster is made with a antique brass hood.
LOCKING CASTER prevents the chair from moving. This type of caster is equipped with a locking mechanism that can be applied or not applied. It is useful when a special needs person is using the chair. This type of caster has an antique brass hood and can only be used with the “plastic caster” option.
