Magic Office Chair Caster Wheels - Protect Your Floor

$138,620

2,170

All people have faced a few problems using standard office caster wheels. We are no exception. They scratched and marked a floor in our office, so we had to use a plastic mat for each chair. If I needed to move over the wires and cables, I had to lift my chair, or I could even tip over. Also, these casters are always full of dust and hair, so it gets hard to roll and move. So... We’ve made our own casters to make office & home life easier.

Tired of all these things? No more scratches and marks, no more traces from rubber and plastic wheels, no more floor changing every second year, no more plastic mats, no more moving a chair with hands, and no more wheels as dust & dirt collectors - it’s all in the past. Now you have Stealtho.

This industrial design wheel is made of cheap metal, has a design suitable for a factory but not for an office & home. It has bad mechanical engineering:

- Its construction height is too big. That’s why it increases the height of the chair and it becomes not that convenient to sit at a table, causes the swelling of the legs.

- The distance between axis is 1.38” (3.5 cm), incorrectly distributes the load and contributes to the damage at the base.

- Non Ergonomic locking system. The long brake lever clings to the legs and cloth.

- Unsecured ball bearings. Balls can even fall out of the bearing because of weak construction.

That’s all the real cases and we solved them.

               

No, really. For any kind of the floor. Hardwood, bamboo, carpet, tile, laminate, and more. You can even create a new type of floor and our wheels will already be safe for it.

All the magic is in the construction and materials. We’re using a soft elastic polyurethane and special wheel forms (angles, dimensions, proportions, etc).

                      
     

British scientists have proven that everyone at least once in their life has caught their finger on a chair in a dark room. We decided to shorten the list of injured fingers, and added some luminophore to our polyurethane wheels. Now you can see it with no light and it’s easier to locate the position of your chair in total darkness.

It wasn’t an easy task to find the optimal level of luminophores in polyurethane. After dozens of experiments, we found out that the optimum for luminophores is 3%. In this case, we get the good level of light in the dark and still transparent polyurethane as well.

Just look at the numbers. Using plastic wheels is not economically sound. Numbers are taken from open sources as for the average U.S. citizen and even though it cost us more than $1,400 per year to sit on the plastic wheels while using Stealtho Wheels saves us almost $1,000 per year on that.

A lot of those who care about their floors are buying a plastic mat. And now you don’t need to spend any money on this expensive protective office thing, which can be toxic and collects a lot of dirt and bacteria, limits your actions, discolours, and has an unpleasant smell.

Have you ever fallen or just gotten stuck while moving on your chair? That’s all because of the small diameter and bad wheel proportions. Stealtho Wheels were designed after dozens of tests, and finally, we found the best construction and dimensions to roll over any office & home barrier.

Just 3 easy steps to change chair position and that’s all. You don’t need to call a mechanic or an engineer to change it.

To get a Set with the locking system add $3 to the pledge amount in Single Chair Set Pledge.

                      
    
    
           

Risks and challenges

Our experienced management team has a proven track record of bringing products to market and selling it all around the globe.

Before launching the campaign we've done all our homework properly: the design is finalized, DFM is finished, we already have fully functional prototypes, our contracted manufacturer is signed to start mass production in June, and our shipping contractors are waiting to ship the wheels.

We believe we have mitigated the risk factors as much as possible, and now we just need funding for the first production batch!
