Felt Glides

Variations Of Felt Glides

Nail On Felt Glides
Our Nail on furniture glides with felt are a commonly used glide solution to prevent the marking of floors, the felt base prevents the exposed plastic from touching the floor to prevent movement markings. Nail on glides are commonly used within the furniture manufacturing industry where they are nailed onto the bottom of furniture so that it can easily be glided round a warehouse or store-room, preventing the need for any large vehicles or tools to pick up or move the furniture. These are a cost effective furniture glides solution to a ever-reoccurring problem in this industry. Often referred to as Nail Feet or even Nail Glides, these Felt versions are perfect for use with hard or often slippery surfaces, helping to reduce friction and to lessen grip which can help move an object across a surface.
Felt Glides For Tubes
These Tube Glides for chairs come with a standard flat base topped with felt, this helps to reduce friction across surfaces and can be easily fitted to tubular Chairs/Furniture. Coming with a ribbed shank section, these fit securely and without the need for additional fasteners, fixings or adhesives. Unlike our other products, these Tubular Insert Glides can be installed onto almost any appliance, making them a popular choice over their nail on, or screw in counter-parts. In their more broad sense and categorically, these are referred to as Felt Chair Glides. Hence their main usage being with a tubular base chair leg, where they would be inserted to act as a foot type fitting.
Tilting Felt Glides For Tubes
These Insert Glides for tubes come with tilting bases from standard, this allows you to adapt and adjust the base to suit your particular chair/furniture leg angle. Failing that, the base can also be adjusted to suit the specific flooring that it is being placed on, preventing any issues with stability. As Tube Glides, these work well towards reducing friction and stopping floors from becoming damaged or scratched. With a premium felt base, these are truly efficient and effective components that come in at reduced price thanks to their effective manufacturing. Again, in a broader sense than their main category these can be known as Felt Chair Glides. Being a wider take on its specific term, these can vary in how people understand them, from ball base foot to a felt base insert.

Our selection of Felt Chair Glides are perfectly suited for use with hard floors. They are manufactured to industry standard requirements for long term usage. These Glides work to reduce friction by using a soft layer of felt to lessen the impact experienced when an object is moved across a surface. They are designed to prevent excess noise or damage.

Felt Glides are available in many different variants and installation types. They range from inserts which fit inside tubular furniture to nail on versions, which are a simple tap to fit for all kinds of wooden applications. Each version that we offer inside this range has been tried and tested to rigorous standards, ensuring their performance with many different kinds of furniture, chairs, and appliances.
