WHEN RAISING A PIECE OF FURNITURE OR MACHINERY:
TO LEVEL OFF AN OBJECT:
TO REDUCE VIBRATIOS AND NOISE:
WHEN FREQUENT HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT IS REQUIRED:
One of the most popular uses for these types of feet is to raise a piece of furniture or machinery. The majority of feet provide stability even at the longest of thread sizes to prevent wobble.
When measuring Adjustable Feet, it is important to have a good idea of the key requirements that will enhance the day-to-day performance. Also, it is important to hold a consideration for weight capabilities. Outlined within the image below are the most important parts to consider when measuring up your Adjustable Feet.
1. Base Diameter: The Base Diameter is essential for stabilising and supporting the weight of the object. The larger the base, the better the level of stabilisation.
To find the base diameter of the foot, you should measure the size across the base as labelled within the diagram.
2. Thread Length: Thread Length is important for the height adjustment and installation of these feet. A longer thread will provide more upwards height than a shorter one.
The thread length of an adjustable foot is often the distance between the stud and bolt. The stud is the part labelled ‘thread size’. The bolt is the section where the thread joins the base.
3. Thread Size: Thread size is a key factor for supporting the weight of an object. It is also important for thread compatibility, as the thread must match the type that it is being screwed into.
To find the metric thread size of a foot, you should start by measuring the diameter across the thread. This can be done by putting the ruler against the stud of the adjustable foot (labelled thread size in diagram) and taking the measurement in millimetres.
Many of our Adjustable/Threaded Feet variants come with a specified weight rating. This is where they are tested up to a particular level, proving beneficial for heavy uses where an idea of their performance is key. Our table below shows the weight ratings of our Weight Rated Feet. However, we also show ratings on many other products inside our range.
Our range of Adjustable Feet covers a huge number of options, from all-in-one solutions to heavy duty machinery feet. To get a better understanding and to prevent getting lost when matching up to your requirements, we have split up some of the main variants below.
These Fixed Feet come with a rigid base as well as a sturdy fixed thread. They are suitable for many general uses, and are regularly used with furniture to act as either feet or legs. Being some of the most common, these are regularly cheaper than their counterparts
Articulating type Adjustable Feet (also known as Levelling Feet) are unique. They allow for up to 8° of articulation from standard. This enables their use with uneven surfaces that aren’t completely flat.
Tilting Feet come with a ball joint connection between the base and the thread. This allows for up to 20° of angled movement. Tilting type Adjustable Feet are regularly used with uneven flooring. They are also used with applications that have varying heights.
Weight Rated Feet are some of the most heavy duty offerings that we supply, each one being tested up to a certain weight rating to give you peace of mind. Each foot is fortified and built to easily sustain weight. This makes them ideal for use with machinery and conveyors.
