Algood Product Spotlight: 600 Series Ball Casters

Iconic Ball Casters


When you think about office chairs or furniture, you almost always conjure up an image of a ball caster. While ball casters are often associated with office chairs and furniture, they are not limited to that environment. Ball casters are versatile and can be effectively used in a wide range of settings, making them one of our top-selling casters. 

Not only are our ball casters BIFMA approved and incredibly functional, they are designed to enhance the aesthetics of any setting. With standard sleek bright mirror reflection chrome and a variety of other available finishes, including Antique Brass, Antique Copper, Brass Lacquer, Brush Nickel, Flat, Gloss, and Ionic Black, these casters can truly elevate the look of any environment. 

Black polyolefin, as well as black or grey Envirothane™ wheels, are available. The Envirothane wheels are particularly useful because they are hard enough for carpeted floors and soft enough for tiled surfaces. In addition, the grey Envirothane creates a distinctive colour combination.

Our ball casters are engineered for easy swivelling and movement. Their spherical shape allows them to sit on a single point, reducing friction and enabling smooth motion. The wheel rides directly on the bushing, not on bearings, which ensures excellent mobility at a reasonable cost. With hardened steel load raceway bearings and self-lubricating acetyl resin bushings, our ball casters are built to last and are virtually maintenance-free.

These casters are manufactured in our integrated facility in Toronto. That allows us to offer outstanding lead times, dependable delivery dates and trusted North American quality backed by our 3-Year No-Excuse Warranty.

Two sizes are available—1-3/4″ and 2″—each with a capacity of 75 lbs. Options include a side-locking brake and a number of top plate choices. They come with grip rings, grip necks, or threaded stems in a variety of sizes.

Ball casters are perfect for office chairs and furniture. They are also ideal for store fixtures, dollies, and institutional and healthcare environments.

Whether you use ball casters in their iconic office environments or other settings, they are an economical and attractive mobility solution.
