Abstract (en)

[origin: CA2400225A1] An anti-tipping chair base has a central support member (2) with a generally upright axis, and a plurality of arms (3) that extend generally radially outwardly from the axis and each of which is provided with a caster (4). An outer end portion (3A) of the arm has a shape that curves downwardly around the caster to an end edge (3B) outwardly of the caster. As seen in plan, the outer end portion of the arm has side edges (3C) that diverge in a direction towards the end edge and between which the end edge extends generally normal to the radial direction of the arm. The end portions (3A) of the arm compris e support elements that contact a surface on which the base is disposed in the event that the base tips in use.
