Nail On Feet & Glides

Variations Of Nail On Feet & Glides

Nail On Glides
Our furniture glides or chair glides as they are also known are manufactured using a handful of premium materials to ensure a solid, reliable product. Available in a range of materials to suit we have the best possible choice for you no matter what your application may be. Each of these nail insert feet comes with a strong, steel nail for an easy installation to any piece of furniture or hardware. These furniture glides are stocked in a variety of strong and sturdy styles to suit the range of applications that you may have, these styles include a handful of different materials including metal, nylon and standard plastic solutions.
Nylon Nail On Glides
These Nylon Nail Glides are some of the lowest cost options that we offer across our whole glides section, offering a quality product with the properties of metal, just at fractions of the price that you would otherwise pay. Easily fitted to your chairs or furniture, these can be inserted on multiple occasions without causing too much damage to the application that you would like to glide / slide across a soft surface.
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.
Nail On Metal Glides
Metal versions of these Nail On Glides are great for adding sliding properties to a piece of furniture, or a chair. Metal is great for softer surfaces such as carpet, where a smooth metal surface can easily glide when required. As a cost effective, popular option these provide a nice aesthetic whilst promoting ideal properties.
Nail On Teflon Glides
As our most popular form of Nail On Glide, these PTFE (Teflon) versions provide excellent properties across both hard and soft surfaces. Manufactured using the same material as non-stick pans, these gliders offer reduced friction, which can prevent unnecessary damage to the floor they're placed on, it's for this reason why they're used globally by consumers and professionals alike. Nail On Glides are easily affixed to your application (often Chairs & Furniture) by hammering them into place, with the nail insert holding itself in place.
Square Teflon Nail On Glides
As a Square form of Nail On Glide / Nail Glide these feature a few different base types. Made up from mostly Teflon / PTFE these are recommended for use with Carpet, Felt & All soft surfaces with similar properties. Used to prevent damage and to lessen the noise experienced when moving furniture or chairs, these are a hugely popular option for use which come in many different installation types (including screw on and insert).
Plastic Nail On Feet
Our Plastic Nail Feet or Nail Glides are used for the same reason as the alternative nail on glides with felt, that is to be used as glides to move around an application. They are nailed onto the bottom of heavy furniture such as sofa's to easily move them around a large area or warehouse, this prevents the need for large, costly machinery and doesn't damage the furniture, making it an ideal nail on glide solution. Also known as furniture glides, this gives you the indication that they have a specialist use, however in some instances they could be used as feet for furniture or chairs to provide grip and keep the application stable whilst in use.
Rubber Nail On Feet
As a popular alternative to our standard Rubber Ferrules these are a nail in option, allowing you to easily install them to any wooden chair or piece of furniture. Also referred to as 'Nail on feet' these can be used for smaller and lighter appliances, providing grip and stability to an application which may not have had it before. Nail on rubber feet come in a few main sizes, mainly based on industry standards meaning they come in a 19mm and 22mm. Known as Nail Glides for wood as well as Nail Feet, these Rubber versions provide a good level of grip whilst maintaining the Glide stand-point, preventing the need for multiple options.
Rectangular Nail On Feet
These Nail On versions of our Plastic Feet are perfect for use with all kinds of Chairs, Furniture & Appliances. Coming with a strong Nail Insert, these are easily installed using a hammer or simply by hand. Often used with objects such as Sofa's inside lounging area's, these Rectangular versions are ideal for spreading the weight as well as helping to glide it across a surface. Nail Feet or Nail Glides for wood as they are known, are frequently used for their installation properties.

Our selection of Nail On Feet & Nail On Glides are made from a selection of high quality materials. These include nylon, PTFE, PVC-P, and steel. Each comes with a built in nail insert to allow for easy installation to a piece of furniture. Most commonly used with wooden chairs and furniture, these can easily be installed by hand using a hammer. These products provide a long term fitting that can be removed without causing too much damage to the wood itself.

When used as Glides, these nail insert feet are excellent for moving, gliding, or sliding around furniture with ease, without damaging or marking the floor it is placed upon. On the other hand, when used as Chair & Furniture Feet, they are ideal for adding extra grip and stability to add support and to prevent the marking of surfaces.
