Don’t let incorrect Castors topple your safety program

Human Safety CastorsFor an office safety program to be effective, few things are the basic & what would be more important to the work place then the office chair.

CASTOR WHEELS, those are incorrect for the floor surface can pose the risk of serious injury. Even brand new chairs can cause problems as they are routinely equipped with hard wheel castors suitable for carpeted floors only. For chairs to roll safely, use hard wheels on carpeted floors, and soft wheels on chairmats and hard floor surfaces. Protect yourself and your company against any fatal accident by equipping your office chairs with quality, REGAL CASTORS.

As the industry’s leading manufacturer & exporter of Furniture Castors for over quarter century, REGAL CASTORS provides the solution for every type of Castor safety problem.

Employers cannot afford to neglect any aspect of seating safety. They should never let worn or damaged castors remain in use. Nor should they take caster safety for granted when buying new chairs which are usually supplied with hard wheel casters. The threat to worker health is too immense & the cost of potential damages is too high. The recent rise in “chair accident” makes this clear.

In adapting safety features to new chairs or retrofitting existing chairs, the corporate decision maker must focus on Castors – the truly “pivotal” safety component. It is the misuse of Castor wheels and the use of flawed or worn Castors that are the primary source of serious chair accidents.

Just as tires must have the proper tread for safe driving performance on dry pavement as well as slick or snow-covered roadways, chair movement depends on wheels that provide appropriate traction on hard or soft surfaces.

To custom-fit your chair for safety, you need REGAL CASTORS featuring our exclusive line of hard and soft Castor Wheels. We let you choose the Castors that are the safest for specific types of surfaces, from vinyl, linoleum and hardwood floors or plastic chair mats to industrial-grade or plush carpeting.
Hard floor surfaces require soft wheel Castors. If not, then the Chair will be subject to dangerously rapid movement & will spin out of control while the user is seated, or the Chair will roll away when the user rises & then tries to resume a seat.

In addition, injury due to falling is an obvious risk. A more insidious problem is the muscle strain that can result from constant efforts to keep the chair in place. The requirement for carpeted floor surfaces is just the opposite. Hard wheel Castors are necessary for the chair to glide smoothly across the floor. If, instead, the caster grips the carpeting and the user tugs back and forth to move the chair, it can topple over. Even if this hazard is avoided, such a constant exertion can result in strain and injury.

REGAL CASTORS products have been ergonomically designed to eradicate such risks to ones health and safety. Built for quality and durability, REGAL CASTORS are safety essentials. So, the question is not that you need REGAL CASTORS for safety, but which Castors you need.

Important: Replace all Castors at the same time, for uniform Castor wear and balanced safe rolling. There are several Castor models to choose from. All comes with choice of different Stems (Mountings) types for compatibility.
