Plastic & Rubber Feet are generally, what most of our Chair Feet come under. Plastic is generally recommended for softer floor types (such as Carpet, Laminate, Vinyl) with Rubber suggested for harder surfaces (such as Wood, Concrete, Tiles). Available as Furniture Inserts or Chair Ferrules, along with a whole host of other solutions and designs, you can rest assured that your perfect solution can be found inside this product range.
External Chair ferrules as they are more commonly known fit to the outside of chair / furniture legs. We provide them in a durable LDPE and a long lasting neoprene rubber to suit all applications. We sell a number of different external replacement chair feet including Plastic External Feet, Rubber Style 1 & 2, General Rubber and Crutch Style Feet. As a popular alternative to their tubular counter-parts, these Chair Ferrules work by slotting onto the end of a leg, acting as a tip or cover to prevent unnecessary floor scratching or damage.
External fitting feet are widely used inside industries such as education and health-care where they are used to provide grip and stability to an application. For example with our rubber crutch style feet that are slipped onto the end of a crutch to give stability, integrity, grip and strength. These are some of our strongest replacement ferrules as they fit over the chair leg rather than inside, meaning that they cover the hole leg, providing a number of benefits from grip to anti-slip. Being less common in Schools than Inserts, these Ferrules are more frequently found in Workplaces or households where hard floorings are common.
Along with External versions, Plastic feet are one of the most common replacement feet available, they come in thousands of different styles to suit all types of Furniture whether they require internal or external fitting options. Internal fitting plastic feet for furniture are widely used with tubular or hollow chair legs as the feet can be placed in the end and simply hit inside with a hammer or mallet. External fitting plastic inserts on the other hand tend to be used with solid chair legs, these can be square, round or even rectangular therefore there are alot of options for plastic furniture inserts.
Rubber feet are one of the most widely used replacement feet products due to their excellent gripping and non marking properties when in use.

Being popular for use with harder style floorings, these kind of feet act as end tips rather than inserts, covering the end of the chair leg rather than fitting internally.
Walking stick ferrules are a specialist form of 'Chair Ferrule' suited specifically for walking sticks. Available in standard sizes, these have been designed for easy fitting and use with all walking aids, which are generally used by the elderly or disabled.

Our Internal fitting replacement chair feet are most commonly used for chairs that have a tubular leg i.e. School chairs.

Internal feet or Furniture Inserts, are available in Round, Square, Rectangular and Oval to suit your specific tube or chair/appliance leg, ensuring a quality fit and installation every time.

Each style has its own key features, with angled, standard round & square available we have the ideal choice of replacement chair insert for you.
Please note that these School Chair Feet are recommended over Rubber Feet for school based chairs as the angular nature of the legs can work through the ferrule and potentially damage the flooring that it is placed upon. Inserts can be fitted onto almost any angled leg as long as it is hollow, otherwise another solution may be suggested. Rubber Chair Feet should be used solely for straight legs, as this puts the force to the ground evenly rather than at an awkward or inconvenient angle.
