You may have a work layout that changes all the time. That can become problematic if you have a large desk that needs to be moved often. A good solution that isn't hard to execute is adding leveling caster wheels to the bottom of your desk. These tips can help out with this desk renovation for added mobility.
Ensure Wheels Can Support the Full Weight
You'll find different durability levels with leveling caster wheels. Some can hold hundreds of pounds no problem and then other caster wheels would break under this type of weight. So that you're not having to deal with wheel damage and possibly desk damage, make sure you get leveling caster wheels that can support the full weight of your desk.
If you find a manufacturer that is pretty thorough, then they should state exactly how much weight their leveling caster wheels can support. Then you'll just need to find out the weight of your desk somehow and ensure it doesn't go over the caster wheels' maximum weight capacity.
Fasten Casters with Durable Screws
Once you've made sure you've chosen quality leveling caster wheels to go underneath your work desk, you need to choose the right screws. These fasteners will experience a lot of force, so they need to be capable of holding up just like the caster wheels.
Not only do you want to choose thick screws for fastening leveling caster wheels underneath a work desk, but you want to go with a titanium material. You can feel confident in this material's ability to support the caster wheels under the desk.
Make Sure Rolling Action Is Smooth
After you get done putting leveling caster wheels on the bottom of a work desk, you want to have no issues moving it smoothly to different areas around your work site. The caster wheels need to have an amazing gliding action that you don't have to worry about.
If you're able to shop for leveling caster wheels in person, that's obviously an easy way to test out the rolling actions yourself. If you can't and online is the only way you can buy, then see if you can find demonstrations.
Putting leveling swivel casters on the bottom of desks makes them easy to move, but also gives them support when the leveling components are activated. Take your time choosing these wheels and installing them and then desk mobility will be everything you want it to be.
