Well, long answer short, after thorough research, we found that yes, almost 95% of the office chairs are universal, having a standard stem size.
Office chair wheels, also known as casters, are not necessarily universal. The size and type of the wheels you need will depend on the type of flooring you have in your office and the weight of the chair. Here are some factors to consider when selecting office chair wheels:
- Size: Caster wheels come in different sizes, and it’s important to choose the right size for your chair. For example, a larger chair will typically need larger wheels to support its weight and size.
- Material: Caster wheels are typically made from either plastic or metal. Plastic wheels are generally more suitable for carpeted floors, while metal wheels are better for hard surfaces like wood or tile.
- Lockable: Some office chair wheels have a locking mechanism that allows you to keep the chair stationary when needed. This can be helpful if you need to focus on a task and don’t want to be disturbed by the movement of the chair.
It’s a good idea to measure the diameter of the current wheels on your chair and compare it to the wheels you are considering purchasing to ensure a proper fit. It’s also a good idea to check the manufacturer’s recommendations or consult with a representative to ensure that you are selecting the appropriate wheels for your chair and flooring.
