ANSI Standards: Caster and Wheel Requirements

ANSI (American National Standards Institute) and ICWM (Institute of Caster and Wheel Manufacturers) have documented vocabulary, performance and testing requirements for casters and wheels.  This standard, which was completed in 2012 and updated in 2018, is invaluable for specifiers involved in applications requiring high performance and precision performance casters and wheels.
