Can castor chairs be used on a Quick-Step Laminate floor?

Yes. However, it’s necessary to take a few protective measures.

Use soft castors. Most of today’s office chairs can be ordered with soft or hard castors. Soft castors typically have an outside layer of different material and colour (usually light grey). For existing chairs with hard castors, contact your supplier to order soft wheels to replace the hard ones. Soft castors will considerably extend the lifetime of your Laminate flooring. An additional benefit is also that soft castors on a hard floorcoverings such as Laminate will also considerably increase the sitting comfort.

Additionally, you can put a transparent protective mat under your office chairs. Choose a mat for hard floor coverings without profiling on the back. Make sure that the area is big enough. In case of intensive castor chair traffic the combination of soft castors and a protective mat is strongly advised.
