Adjustable Feet

What are adjustable feet?
Adjustable feet are used to level and support structures, machinery, furniture and display stands that require vertical adjustments to function correctly. Adjustable feet come in various base sizes and thread sizes to suit different applications. Larger thread sizes and base diameters provide the best weight capabilities in comparison to smaller sizes. The larger the base the better the level of stabilisation.
When to use adjustable feet?
• When raising furniture or machinery – the longer the thread size the more height you can add still keeping stability and no wobbles
• To level off an object – articulating and tilting feet help with un-even surfaces or varying heights
• To reduce vibrations and noise – a rubber base foot helps reduce vibrations and noise as rubber provides great level of shock absorption
• When frequent height adjustment is required – e.g. portable stands and stalls
How to fit adjustable feet?
These mounts consist of base plates with spindles attached to them. The spindle is inserted into the product or object that requires levelling and support. They are easy to install and you can adjust the height as required.
RS Components offers an extensive range of adjustable feet suitable for light duty and heavy duty requirements that are ideal for uneven floor surfaces. All metal machine feet are ideal for heavy duty items. Base material can consist of galvanised steel, nickel plated steel, stainless steel or zinc plated steel. The foot material can also be manufactured from stainless steel as well as PS reinforced nylon or rubber.
What are adjustable feet used for?
These adjustable feet are used as stability tools in machinery and uneven work surfaces and to distribute the weight evenly.
They are standard in production environments where conveyor belts are used such as the food manufacturing, pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries. These feet mounts are also used in the packaging industry where precision alignment and perfect balance levels are required for the special machinery to function.
Types of adjustable feet include:
Fixed feet – with a rigid base. They can be adjusted vertically, but not sideways. Suitable for general uses.
Articulating feet – allow deviation of up to 8 degrees & are used for to balancing structures on uneven surfaces.
Tilting feet - have ball joints located between the bases and the thread which provide up to 20 degrees of articulation and are used in applications with varying heights.
