Hi Jim, no this product is only produced with a brass hood.
Thank you for your question Fixer- Yes, the sleeve is included with this caster and stem.
Hello Gulam, this is a common question. Your total load rating depends on how many casters you are spreading the load across. For example, if you have an office chair with 5 legs, then 5 of these casters can handle a 400lb distributed load (80lbs x 5 = 400lbs).
William, thank you for your question. We do have a plastic furniture socket that ought to fulfill your application. It will be Shepherd Hardware part number 9069. This socket is a 3/4" socket for the Inner Diameter the outer diameter, though is 7/8". If you local Home Depot does not carry this item, you can always go to the "Pro Desk"" and have them call us to do a special order.
It would be impossible for them to be plastic. It wouldn't be sturdy enough. They are steel painted gold colored.
Hello ken, Thank you for the inquiry about the Sleeve For Caster. I think the best advice may be to check with the Hardware Department in your local Home Depot store. You may be able to find the caster sleeves there.The Home Depot store carries items that are not offered online and there are items online that are not carried in the Home Depot store. We appreciate your business and look forward to serving you in the future. Thank you for shopping Home Depot.
no, this is a very smooth design and the only way it would scratch the floor is if it was worn out or the mounting of the wheel failed. great design.
Not quite. Whenever you lean any direction in the chair, it will put more load on the wheels under the direction you are leaning, more the further you lean. I would conservatively derate them to 250lbs total per chair for that reason, and if your chair itself was formerly capable of more than that due to a limit other than the casters, yet you were putting more than 250 lbs of load on the chair, this seems like it could be why the old casters have failed, that you need a more heavy duty chair that takes heavier casters.
